This is like Barack Obama selecting Tom Arnold to be Vice-President in the belief that nobody would ever assassinate him if Arnold was second in command.

And as others have said, it's not even like Holmgren -- again! -- even bothered to wait 5 minutes into the FA period to see what his options are. How could anyone think that Michael Leighton was in any way a prized commodity to be offered something before it even starts. Probably Holmgren said to his assistants that he was busy making offers to the Parise and Suter camps.

"A backup goaltender? I don't know, do we even need one? ... Umm, I don't really care. I thought I wouldn't have to worry about goaltenders after signing Bryzgalov. ... How about just resigning Leighton? ... I don't care, give him a million. Too much? Uh, knock off $100,000. Now stop bothering me!"
