Anderson or Leighton?

I don't generally follow the Black Hawks like i do my home team (Islanders), but this kid Anderson has caught my eye. From what I read and he is supposed to be a clear #3 behind Thibault and Leighton.

It looks, however, like he is outplaying Leighton and might prove to be minimally an NHL quality back up and potential starter down the road.

Am I missing something about Leighton? Does he have a long term contract? Or is Anderson possibly going to threaten Leigton's back-up role when Thibault gets back?

Thanks.

1. Leighton was never the clear cut #2 goalie behind Thibault, it was shared between Anderson and Leighton

2. Both guys have had their ups and downs, right now Anderson is up, Leighton is down

3. I'd expect Anderson stays up when Thibault comes back

Anderson is more solid and right now the better goalie.

though i think leighton will be better in the long run (yet not as good as ayers will be :p ), andersson should be the one with the NHL job now.
