I don't disagree -- but if that's the case, why would you sign a sub-par spare part for higher than the minimum before FA starts? If you're really not picky about backup goaltenders (which is clearly the case in Philadelphia), why not wait and see what the market price is? I guarantee there was no lineup for Leighton's services. If Homer had showed the slightest bit of patience, and if no better option presents itself, sign MFL in August for $300K less. At least you're paying low for crap.
