No room with our 51 mil bench warmer riding the pine.

Wonder how late in the season till BOB finally gets the 1st spot and we just ride with him. Sink or swim.

Leighton, right now, could not possibly be any worse than Bryzgalov.

Bryzgalov is playing like Leighton at 5.67m when Leighton costs 1.55m.

What? You mean BOB wasn't able to come in cold (for like the 4th times this season) and sugar coat Bryz's performance.

Weird.

Bob's goals were worse today. The forwards can take a lot of blame for horrendous turnovers that let to rushes on Bryz's goals. Bob's 1st two (critical) goals were because of bad rebound control.

Seriously, while I don't believe we should bring back Leighton at this point now, I feel that he hasn't got his chance. We signed him to be a no1, he got hurt, and then we only allowed him to play ONE game in the season, and a bad game in the playoffs. People say that he lost us the cup, but see it the other way : he was a huge reason why we went to the finals.

I never said Bob was playing well.

I said Bryz at 5.67m/year is not worth it. We could spend that money on defense and cushion Bob better.

We're wasting money AND cap space.

Leighton was hands down the worst goalie I've ever seen in a Flyers' uniform since I started watching.

That's not correct. When he was signed, he was told there would be a competition to be the starting goaltender. That's all he was promised. And, it's what happened, he just missed the competition.

Wouldn't bringing up Leighton just add to the cap, and eliminate any chance of acquiring defensive help?

But giving up a giant terdfest when you are the starting goaltender and giving up a terdfest when you come in cold are two entirely different things.
