well yeah there is that but I was comparing him to what some of the other backups got yesterday. I dont think its much to ask to spend money on a legit NHL backup. Leighton is a AHL goaltender.
If Bryzgalov goes down we have Leighton/Hovinen/Heeter as our 1-3. Those 3 probably dont even scare a good AHL team let alone a NHL club.
If you cant get a NHL backup via FA you make a trade. No need to sign a bum like Leighton 10 minutes after FA started and rumored to be agreed upon a day or 2 before. that is just mind boggling stupid. But then again we shouldnt be shocked anymore should we.
