Call me crazy, but I don't and never have hated Leighton. I remember him more for holding the fort and playing pretty awesome after coming out of nowhere than tanking in the finals and allowing that atrocious cup winning goal.
When he was in the middle of his hot stretch Philly fans were talking about him becoming the next Tim Thomas, a late developer that would turn into a great goalie.
Unlike most I actually root for Michael. I really was bummed when he got sent down, and I really wanted him to get his game back to form and make a return to the NHL, but it never happened. I'd be open to giving him a shot at being Bryz's backup, although I'm sure this is more of an AHL signing so he can backstop the Phantoms.
