Michael Leighton is terrible and Boucher is done. The fact that Laviolette basically has no choice but to play Bryz until he runs him into the ground will be Bryzgalov's ultimate undoing.
EDIT: And if you think Bishop or Lehner are going to come cheaply, think again. Ottawa gave up a 2nd for Bishop, so that's probably the minimum they will ask for. Lehner is their goaltender of the future. To acquire him is going to force the Flyers to part with something very significant.
I'd give a 2nd for Bishop, easily. Might even do 2 2nds.
