Apparently Bob has little to no goalie coaching before he came to Philly. Somehow Reese is such a bad coach that he's actually worse than having no coach at all. Bob came from a completely different style of hockey to the NHL where they eventually found his flaws and exposed him. before he could adjust he was shipped out. If anyone is to blame, it's the front office for not having Bob spend time in the AHL to adjust to the North American style of hockey. The guy couldnt even handle the puck when he got here. By the time he left, he was at least not passing directly to the other team but Reese gets not credit for that.
Leighton, the career backup posted a career best .918 in his first season under Reese but I'm sure Reese told him to open up his five hole a little wider before game 6 of the finals.
I would say our defense in 2010 had a greater impact on Leighton's season than Reese.
