Even as a backup goalie I don't want him signed, but that's not really the issue here anyway. The issue here is more that we're signing Leighton while Boucher is already signed which means that they either plan to have Leighton be our starter next year or plan on waiving Boosh.
There should be no urgency at all to want to sign him. None. He wants a big raise over his 600k, well that big raise would be about 800k to be the back up assuming they dump boucher, which they will and include a prospect or pick to boot. The piece said his agent wants to talk to the flyers so not sure it is really from the flyers end. It shouldnt be. If so this is why this orgiization will not win a cup anytime soon. You just know shooter will do something dumb.
I think I'm the only other person that understood that from the article. I'm sure they'll "talk," and an extension will probably be a topic, but I'm not expecting to see it until the end of the season, if it even happens. I know we can always anticipate idiotic moves from Homer, but I'm not ready to go jumping off the building just yet. And I'm fine with Boosh, but if they get rid of him first and then extend Leighton, I have no qualms.
If the day does come when Homer anounces an extension, and Leighton as our starter, I will then proceed to shoot a missile at his house.
