i agree. but you have to admit having an offense first system is a hotter fire to be thrown into. and signing leighton was almost a pity F. we could have saved everybody the embarrassment and just cut him a side check if thats what snider wanted to do for his play in the 2010 playoffs. I personally would've burned the check after the finals but that's my point. we need to not be so grateful to goalies who perform at an NHL level. we need to start drafting and looking for diamonds in that rough.
