Between jeff Reese saying this is our guy, he's going to get better.
Ed Snider wanting to go with a bargain goalie who can go to the cup (niemi / Leighton ) From so that money could be spent elsewhere)
Homer was told to sign Leighton.
Now if you want to argue that the contract should've been cheaper or fewer years go ahead..
but saying he shouldn't have even signed him is just armchair GMing
I thought 3 years was reasonable at the time. If it worked it would've been great.
Now obviously this year marks a change in philosophy.
given this change it seems like 1 year would've been better.
But if you look at the moves (signing BOB) 3 years was reasonable cause BOB would've been a backup
