I was just reading the TSN article on my blackberry about Leighton being on waivers and it's hilarious. They said a possible opponent of Philly may claim him just so he can't duplicate his performance from last year
Do they actually believe this would happen? Too funny.
Like what, bringing the Flyers to the finals again? Say whatever you want, the guy had 3 shutouts in the semi-finals.
I think I could have had 2.
Stupid is as stupid does. How can Paul Holmgren, who had dug himself a pretty nice cap-space grave, pick up his shovel and start working on a sub-basement. If Leighton gets claimed - and there is little reason to believe he won't - I can't fathom how he will explain this lobotomized move. Oh yes, I can.
a) Who the heck knows?
b) It is what it is.
c) What can you do?
That's **** up. Like someone in the East wouldn't claim him if only for that fact. All the strides he made to get Giroux and Carter on good deals goes down the crapper when he does things like this. Man, I feel sorry for you guys. This is Tallon-esque, so don't be surprised to see someone step in and give him the boot in the offseason.
Anybody saying Islanders, I'm not sure if it's sarcasm or not after the whole Nabokov thing but we don't need a goaltender.
I'm assuming sarcasm.
I get the reasoning behind the move, you want a goalie that is proven to some degree in the playoffs as an insurance policy. But it seems like a very large somewhat unnecessary risk for Philly, especially when you consider almost 1 mil in dead cap space next year.
