49. I am sure Holmgren is saving that contract slot for someone at the deadline.

LMAO! Thanks for this thread and the laughs. LOLeighton strikes again! How did he get hurt? Did he actually make a save in practice and the shock on his soft tissue was just too overwhelming!

Probably a shoulder strain opening the bench door too hard for someone.

He needs a rest from playing too many practices back to back...

I actually wondered aloud the other day if Leighton was going to come down with something unexpectedly and go on IR. Holmgren really knows how to work the angles with that.

i hope this is the last time we have to work that "angle". Sign a legit NHL backup next offseason.

Boucher > Leighton anyway. I'm pretty sure he'll be decent as a backup.

Boucher doesn't instill much confidence in me ...Leighton is a complete joke but Boucher is close to irrelevency. He's the least dirty shirt....

According to Sam C. The official report is a "banged up finger out 7-10 days"

Paid $4 million in 3 years to play 4 games; sucking worse each time. Sounds to me like he won the lottery. We should all be that unlucky.

He hurt it playing NHL 13 reliving Game 6 vs. the Blackhawks with him in net. Kept trying over and over again but couldn't seem to win. Finger got carpal tunnel...

Good in some, bad in others. Just what you'd expect from Boosh. But this is a good thing in my eyes just so I don't have to see leighton in a flyers jersey

It is a possible fracture to the ring finger on his stick hand (source: Tim P.).

I'd like to see this team explore back up options. It seems everytime there are viable back-ups on the market or available through trade, the flyers either sign or trade for Boucher / Leighton. And it seems they do it because they are "good" guys.

Dan Ellis was available for a backup role (and potentially able to fill in if Bryz imploded), Ben Bishop is a young tender I like the look of, who went for cheap to Ottawa, and seems a filler until Lehner is ready for a starters gig there. Those are just two names that come to mind. I am certain many other examples exist.

Had Bryz started poorly like he did last season, or if he gets into a funk, It safe to say that with Boucher and Leighton as options 2-3, this team is ****ED!

wow. Of course this means that a panic/overpayment trade is coming if Leighton has a fractured finger. Especially if Boucher implodes.

Both are pretty bad actually:

Chris Mason used to be solid but this may be the third consecutive season where he puts up a SVP < 90%. He may end up unsigned next offseason.

Montoya has never been given a real shot and he has yet to play a full season in front of a solid defense. His experience level is low for a 28 year-old, even less NHL games played than Leighton at the same age.

I hope the Flyers can find a better solution for next season. Maybe sign a proven goalie out of Europe to a one year oneway deal or bring back Emery?!
Thomas Greiss of SJS will be an UFA as well and he may consider a location change...

I'd be more than curious to see how Jeff Deslauriers would fare given half an opportunity and a solid "6" playing in front of him. He's now pretty expendable in Anaheim and the price tag is right.
