Well, Laviolette probably thinks that Leighton is better. He may be right, too, I mean, he knows his players better than we do. Leighton has played 3 or 4 games (reg season and playoffs) since the 2010 run. He sucked in all these games, but that's a really small sample to judge him. He may be a fine backup.

The answer can be found somewhere within the quotes from last weekend's interview.

http://therinkreport.blogspot.com/20...eturns-33.html

Quote:
The 31-year-old Leighton had started just one game since April 2012, thanks to the four-month lockout, Philadelphia’s use of Bryzgalov as a workhorse and the injury he suffered in practice. As he neared full health, he and Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren discussed Leighton’s future.

The goaltender needed reps, and not the kind he could get during a practice. The best way for a goalie to prepare for a game is to play one, to work himself back into a rhythm of facing shooters.

“He told me I definitely needed to play, and I agreed,” Leighton said. “I haven’t played for a while. I played one game against Tampa Bay and then I sat for two or three weeks and then I got hurt and have been out for two or three weeks. It’s something that I thought was the right thing to do.”

That begs the question, why not just assign Leighton to the Phantoms on a conditioning stint? Why place him on waivers, and run the risk that one of the other 29 NHL teams put in a claim?

That was discussed, Leighton said, but a conditioning assignment would have kept him on the Flyers’ 23-man roster. His salary also would have counted against the cap while in the AHL. By placing Leighton on waivers first, the Flyers do not have to worry about either of those issues.

“(Holmgren) was going to do a conditioning stint, but we had too many players on the roster and cap issues,” Leighton said. “He just said ‘We’re going to have to put you on waivers. Go down and play some games, and hopefully be back up.’ ”

Some roster/lineup shuffling for Buffalo.

Pardy sent to AHL which means Leopold could play.

Also,

Hecht took line rushes, Grigorenko did not. Brennan and Sekera both did as well. Weber could be odd man out on D if Sekera goes? Hmmm.

Honestly, I'd like to see how it is with Gervais back. Gus has been struggling to even to decide to put the puck on net or not. Couts as the 3rd line center I feel is a must.

Thanks. Even though it's rough now, this looks like a great place to talk Flyers/hockey.

Cody Hodgson has great speed? He might be the slowest Sabre.

Be prepared though. When arguing with some, it's like talking to a brick wall.

Welcome!
This is a great place, but stay away from the Main Boards, common sense has no meaning out there
