It had less of an effect than the good moves. Bob turned out to be pretty damned good until the playoffs, and I know that most people on here think that if the Flyers hadn't signed Leighton they would have signed a Vezina winning goalie and Homer was just to stupid to realize it, but the fact remains that Bob played well enough to the point where it didn't matter that Leighton was signed or that other goalies weren't. So maybe it didn't have zero effect (which I never said any of the moves did), but it certainly didn't have such a bad effect that signing Bob doesn't outweigh it. (Of course I am aware that you will likely respond that a different goalie we would have won the last two Cups, and I am not going to get back into that argument because I have been having it for the last two years).
