Leighton isnt that good, let me get that out of the way. He also should NEVER see the Flyers uniform again. That being said though, I do think he gets an exaggerated amount of hate because of the Stanley Cup. Also alot of it is from Boosh fans. The truth is though is that Boosh was horrendous playing behind THE EXACT SAME DEFENSE. Thats the truth. Boosh was bad, Leighton was better, and some people here were pissed off about it. I remember one person even went as far as to say that it "wasnt fair to Boosh" that the team did better infront of Leighton than Boosh.
I didnt think Leighton was that good at all, but when Leighton got blamed for that 1-0 loss to the Oilers saving 33 shots and the Flyers barely breaking 20 and getting shutout, you knew alot of the hate was blind hate. Leighton isnt a very good goalie though. Thats the reason why no one takes him on waivers or re-entry waivers. It's simply that he isnt a good goalie.
