Getting to the finals did not make Leighton a good goalie, it meant the defence from the forwards and defencemen did their job. If we win a cup with Bryz in net and the team has to play musical goalies because of it, and the final game is a 6-5 win, people aren't going to suddenly say Bryz was worth it.
I don't think anyone was saying Huet won the Hawks the Cup or would have said Leighton won us the Cup. What I do think is that if the Flyers did win the Cup with Leighton in net, he would be worth every penny at any price.
