Yeah I think this accurate. I don't think Holmgren would tell him, sorry buddy, you will never see the NHL again. Or maybe he did, but Leighton won't come out and say, well Homer said I am toast. Goodnight.
Sure it's one start but he looked like he didn't belong that whole game..his positioning etc was poor. I remember Meltzer saying the same thing but he also said in fairness he hadn't played since the last leap year or something.
The thing is that supposedly in practice he wasn't very "challenging." Then he got a paper cut on his finger or whatever...
