By that logic, hiring Michael Leighton to scout North American goalies would be a great move.
But... Niity was a good goalie who was unable to stay healthy for long enough to reach his potential... Leighton has always been a crapbag... To use the schoolyard parlance, perhaps it takes one to know one... Or at LEAST the fact that Niity has a much stronger concept on what it takes to not suck places him above the MFLs of the world...
It should be interesting to see how this unfolds.
