. Maybe more than two minutes per games over the series from the defenseman would have taken pressure of Timonen and Pronger and the defense plays a little better and helps Leighton out a little more and that save percentage and GAA look a little better. But yeah, it's all on Leighton. And also it is a foregone conclusion that any other goalie would have done better. Because Leighton is the only goalie in history to let in soft goals. No other goalie could have possibly let in any soft ones against the Blackhawks.
So it's the rest of the team's fault for not making up for Leighton blowing? Really?? They scored enough goals to win. But you're right, they didn't score 15, so I suppose that might be their fault.
Your argument would hold water if Leighton's save percentage had been somewhat respectable, and I would absolutely agree with you if it had been halfway decent.
Thank you. You've made a ****** Monday just a little brighter.
