i know, those were all the Team D, and when we lost the SCFs that part was all Leighton..

Yeah, apparently you do get it. Glad to see you've come around . Leighton hardly had to work during those games. They were some of the easiest shutouts a goalie could hope to earn. They were a testament to how good the Flyers skaters were in their own end and at generally manhandling the smaller Habs team more than it was a testament of Leighton's skill. The one game where Pronger had a cold and Leighton had to do work, he got torched.

Our team was good enough on D in the Finals. We were more than good enough on offense. Leighton could only string together one good period at a time though, usually only one per game, and was utterly incapable of bailing out our third pairing like you'd expect a goalie to do when needed. Leighton was by far the weakest link on that team and it cost them badly. When your weakest link is in net, it's a huge problem.

Saturday night, I like to raise a little harm. I'll sleep when I'm dead.
