Hovinen backing up Bryz is a bigger waste of time. He needs to play with the Phantoms. The guy who is backing up Bryz is going to be someone who is very adept and effective at opening the door on the bench.
Yeah I don't understand why people don't get this. Obviously, you'd like to have an all-star at every position, but backup goalie is not something you should be looking to spend a lot of money on or putting a young kid in there because he might one day be good. Backups are backups for a reason. Very few of them have great stats or great skills. That is why they are backups. If they were better and had better stats, they wouldn't be backups anymore. Just get any bag of bones that will accept $1 million and call it a success. Bryz ain't going anywhere in the near future, and while an injury is always a possibility, it is equally possible for him to no miss a single game. Just sign Leighton and move on.
