Few things...

1) I don't like this. I don't know what all went into it, and I'm sure there's a bunch we'll never hear about, or only much later on, but I still don't like it.

2) I see a lot of Holmgren bashing, when this would seem to me to be a Lavy decision, no? I suppose you could bash Holmgren by extension because calling Leighton back up is what gives Lavy this option in the first place?

3) I'm no fan of Michael Leighton, but some of the hate on this guy is just flat out undeserved. Kill him for the finals and that atrocious Kane goal all you want, but don't hate on the guy because he stunk against the Kings coming off of surgery, nor because he's been stuck in the AHL (with a .926 sv %) because of the CBA. He was good enough to save our season last year and played well in the ECF last season, so I sincerely doubt he'd crumble under the pressures of the first round of the playoffs.
