Leighton to be re-signed today?

Panaccio tweeted this today:

Quote:
Leighton re-signing looms, possibly later today; will compete for No. 1, sources say. Does this end it or do Flyers still look?
Also from Chuck Gormley's article:

Quote:
In a perfect world, where Internet trade rumors do not spread like California wildfires, Paul Holmgren would have preferred the Flyers' interest in free agent goaltenders Evgeni Nabokov and Marty Turco remained private.

That way, if he turned around and signed Michael Leighton to a contract extension, it would not have seemed like the 29-year-old goaltender was the Flyers' third or fourth choice.

"I like the way he plays," Holmgren said Tuesday in an interview with FOX-TV 29. "He is a big guy who covers a lot of net and I think he fits in with our group. Our plan is to try and sign him. Whether we can or not remains to be seen."

With the NHL free agency period set to begin on Thursday at noon, it appears more and more likely Leighton has been elevated from Plan B to Plan A and that their free agent focus is now on acquiring a solid defenseman to add to their starting four of Chris Pronger, Matt Carle, Kimmo Timonen and Braydon Coburn.

That is definitely Mrs. Leighton. The question is, mother or wife?

Scratch one goalie off the UFA list. Sportsnet has learned Michael Leighton has come to terms on short term 2 year/ 3.1M with the Flyers.
