Meltzer's assessment today is pretty decent....he is spot on about Leighton historically doing poorly as a backup. He is better when he gets a string of starts until he implodes of course. Maybe he'll be motivated to adjust to the backup role better but I have my doubts. I'm not sure I agree with Meltzer that he will be serviceable. Doesn't really say much. I had a piece o crap car in HS that was serviceable. In my dictionary..serviceable means unreliable. More times than not that car gave me problems and it will be the same with Leighton. He is just not NHL material. Moreover, we are not only going to have to hope that Bryz's adjustment period is over but that he will remain healthy and play like 70 games! The same crap that burned him out in Phoenix by the playoffs....

I'm hatin this Leighton corpse that has been exhumed once again!
