Oh ok I forgot about that and also did not know he still has it to this day.

All I know is if he was healthy during our cup run we prolly would have won it...but obviously we will never know. We do know that Leighton choked in the finals and for whatever reason he is still with this organization and in the NHL or at least he was until the other day.

Just amazing how many serious injuries this team has had to deal with that has contributed to the team's continued cupless streak...
I know right! I remember being a bit excited the offseason we signed him, but also remember the Senators not wanting to resign him since he was risky. I also don't understand why Lavy stuck with Leighton that entire SCF after Game 1.
