Out of the ones I have personally seen played, Nittymaki is hands down the worst with his best year being a 15-8-6, 2.76, .912 after four years with us.
I wouldn't put much stock in Leighton's numbers that year. I would call that the Pronger effect.
Nitty wasn't that bad. Hip problems really slowed him down.
I'm still going with Leighton as the worst Flyers goaltender ever. The goal in game 6 is too much to over come. I cringe when ever I hear the words Michael Leighton.
