Like Holmgren said...Leighton wasn't solely at fault for the Cup Finals loss but he didn't do enough to help win either. I would actually say he didn't do nearly enough. He was pretty putrid.

I commented earlier in this thread about the NHL Network's classic replay of the 2010Finals and how I had forgotten (selectively) just how bad the goaltending was in that series primarily for the Flyers and that Niemi was marginally better only b/c he made more situational saves just like BernieParent just showed....

As far as Carter and Richards they definitely weren't their best for their own reasons so they were part of the problem as well. Pronger wasn't 100% either...his knee was pretty bad by the finals.
