I think it's safe to say we're officially tanking.

Fans should boo Leighton before the game even starts.

If Leighton coming up is honestly Holmgren's attempt to somehow improve their chances of winning games - then he has absolutely has lost it. I hope that somebody in that organization has the stones to say something about it.

I mean seriously - Michael ****ING Leighton? Everyone in hockey knows he sucks. Every GM, coach, player, writer, die-hard and casual fan knows that the guy is not an NHL goalie. EVERYONE knows he is not an NHL goalie.

WHY doesn't this team have a competent backup? There are 20 guys in the AHL that can be had for a 5th round pick or less that are much better than he is. There are 3rd goalies on AHL rosters that are better. There are a dozen ECHL goalies that are better. Boucher is better. This is just ridiculous.

I'm going to guess that Bryz is yelling at guys for blowing assignments. He supposedly did that in Phoenix. Maybe he is bruising egos or something.

whaaaaaa

The Leighton signing might end up being good. It could help us getting Jones.

Then we start him for the next 6 games and he gets blown out

As soon as I heard they recalled Leighton when I was at work the only thing that could possiblly make sense is that they are complely giving Bryzgalov the night off. no backup or anything.
Boucher starts, Leighton backs him up.
Leighton is returned to ADK on Monday. Only way it makes sense

EDIT: nevermind I just saw the press release

WTF.

**** you Holmgren. You moron.

Why even bother sending him down? Let the AHL prospects get an extra start or two.

Homer is a genius! This was the plan all along. Leighton signing was just in case the team sucked and they needed to tank. It all makes sense now.

Yea, I know. I was just wondering if management knew that nobody would claim him!
