Theres two view points on Leighton, there's the logic that the weak goals he gives up are just lapses and are goals that every goalie gives up.

The more common view point is that Leighton is and has always been a career minor league goaltender. Like any goalie he is capable of a hot streak, but the soft goals are more him coming back to earth then just bad luck. I also feel the need to point out that nobody picking him up on waivers is a clear indication he's not a #1 goalie. He's not even a 1A, if he was some team would have jumped at the opportunity to have him for 800k next year and also **** our cap up.

Let's also not ignore the fact that his 5 hole is a consistent problem area for him. It's not one weak goal that gets him crucified, it's that his biggest flaw was our undoing at the worst possible time.
