I'm just assuming that's already going to happen. It would be too perfect.
Edit: Maybe it would also explain the suckfest in the finals. Not that I'm trying to justify it, I'm one who feels he was bound to get torn apart against a real offense anyway. But it would make everything a little more interesting.
Nope, that was just Leighton being Leighton.
I can't believe people are worried about this. The guy sucks as a starting NHL goaltender.
seriously why not Bobrovsky? is it just a case of too soon? I have read nothing but high praise about his game and he has shown it thus far as well.
Because the preseason and regular season against real lineups going pedal to the metal are two entirely different monsters. They're not going to hand Bobrovsky any sort of role until they're confident he can justify it, and they won't know that until they see him more.
Seriously, though, it's just high farce now. And talk about irony: Holmgren signs Leighton before FA starts so (I believe) he wouldn't have to worry about signing a FA goalie ... and even the lowest common denominator can't make it to the regular season.
