Do we? Because he did the same stuff in Phoenix. Many of their fans have compared him to Luongo when it comes to the playoffs.

Letting in 5 goals but making 1 "huge save" doesn't exactly give me confidence in him being able to consistently make that save.

At least in the first 2 games Bryz made 2 or 3 big saves to put us where we were able to win the game..

Bouch wasn't going to play solid 4 games in a row vs Boston.

Never understood all the Leighton hate, never will. We all can agree that last goal sucked, but that's something Bryz lets in on the reg. I will always remember Leighton as the guy that gave that team hope and something to fall back on, and I'll always respect him for that.
Well said, my thoughts exactly.

Michael Leighton played well and got us to the stanley cup finals

the problem is not that he let in a bad goal at a bad time
he could have had been the best goalie on the planet but because they didn't win the cup and it was on a bad goal that pisses people off


leighton got us to the finals
and THATS what people tend to forget



and this is way better than the goalie coaster ride we went on last year
