What a waste of a contract spot. We never should have signed him

Leighton has appeared in 4 NHL games (including playoffs) since Game 6 of the 2010 Stanley Cup final. He has a goals against-average of 4.12 (9 GA in 189 minutes) and an .896 save percentage in those 4 games.

LOL. of course this will mean we sign him again because he never got a chance to show he was worth the contract Holmgren gave him

LOL. I like how the Leighton supporters seem to think no other backup goaltender would put up better numbers then that

It's like Homer knew Leighton would suck and brought Boucher back after accidentally signing Leighton to the one year deal LOL!

You think Leighton and Boucher are fine backup goalies? One would argue the Flyers have the worst backup goaltenders in the league. They could of had oh say Montoya for 250k more or so.

As if the fan base needed more of a reason to absolutely hate this guy.
Good riddance, hope he never sees time with the orange and black EVER again.

What made you gather that conclusion? I think they both suck but Boucher sucks less. The whole thing is a joke.

glad to hear Boosh is coming up. he's not good like at all but he's a great locker room guy. i really hope when he decides to hang it up he gets a job within the organization.

Just a thought, when Leighton is gone, who would you rather want Montoya or Mason?

LOL

Can we please, pretty please, finally be rid of this guy? How the hell does he get hurt warming the bench, splinters in his ass?

I hope we go out and get an actual NHL backup goalie next year.

Boucher is not really a backup anymore, but got no one else so oh well. I dont see this as an upgrade. Both are ****** goalies really.

Hopefully Boosh plays Winnipeg, gets a shutout, and we never see Leighton again. Then Boosh can retire and become a coach or something and we can sign someone competent or bring up Heeter or something.

While I am not the biggest Michael Leighton fan, I am still appreciative of his time with us in 2010. I also think he is a hell of a company guy and probably not hurt, which allows Boosh to step in. I think Boosh is the better of two, but I wouldn't be surprised if we sign Esche (based on the Flyers lockout article) if Boosh sucks. Holmgren takes care of old Flyers. I hope Boosh plays well in his chance.
