Leighton totally deserves his place in the team at the moment. Sure he has looked like a fish out there in the net sometimes, jumping around, giving up rebounds, but at the end of the day, He is winning games.
Thats all that counts in the NHL. Wins! For the people who say he's a useless goaltender, he's not nhl standard. If he somehow took us to the playoffs, won every game and brought home lord stanley large mug, i couldn't give two ***** how the puck stays out of the net. (not saying he's good enough to do that)
But for people to say he's not good enough to keep this pace up. Sometimes things just fall into place, the defense is good enough to save his bacon. Maybe we should keep him in the net until he runs 3 bad games
Dare I say this is Stanley Cup contending defense?
You do! It was supposed to be before the season started and I think they're living up to the billing, despite all the endless grumbling about Coburn. Bart and Syvret have looked really good lately, and if Parent can get healthy, I really like their depth at D.
