Have no interest in what Binghamton thinks of Lee, most of which is just unsubstantiated fan opinion or rumour.
Lee obviously showed good work ethic, determination, and a positive attitude in Ottawa or he would not have been given the opportunity to play.
Once the opportunity was given him, he has been very good. The more he has played, the more responsibility he has been given, and the last few games has played on the first pairing with Phillips. Interestingly, Phillips is a +2 in those games.
So while it has been the hobby of many to bash Lee, while praising Carkner, it just shows what little some fans know about evaluating NHL talent.
2 of Kuba, Gonchar and Campoli need to be traded (or waived/bought out in Kuba's case). I'd like to keep Campoli but the return for him could be interesting. Well, it all depends on Phillips case in the first place

I too thought Lee played well, but my god he is SLOW as molasses. Zherdev made him look like an absolute pylon early in the game.
So nice to watch a competent goalie!
A hockey fan should know better : you don't draw conclusions from one single play. Lee got caught flat-footed, simple as that
Zherdev showed incrdible speed on that play though.
