It's NOT the goal in Game 6. It's how he ****ing played, which was badly. Almost ANY time he was challenged, in the season and playoffs, he folded. If the team in front of him didn't play with such desperation he wouldn't have had those numbers. They played like their mothers were in net without pads, because they knew ANY shot thrown on goal might go in if it was placed somewhere that would require Leighton to move a limb. He was a trash can in net. If the puck didn't go where he was already placed, it went in. If the team didn't hold the other team to low percentage areas, they scored.

Let's not forget that it was Boucher who got them into the playoffs as well...not Leighton. Leighton sucked. He had the fortune of playing behind a high powered team that could also play very good defense. I've been saying he sucks and that he was a product of the team in front of him playing like they have an empty net since we grabbed him off waivers, because anybody with eyes could see that. You need to stop letting the Cinderella story glory cloud your judgement. He and his stats were the product of the team. The team and it's success was NOT a product of him.

Down in the basement, I've got a Craftsman lathe. Show it to the children when they misbehave.
