There's definitely some people stuck up on his so-called rep and history, but I would call them the minority here.

Again though, I can't remember anything truly horrible that he's done in his career. Then again I've never followed him much. To my knowledge he's never been much more then a pest/agitator/enforcer.
It's not about what he's done that's "horrible," it's about how much trouble he's gotten into. He talks a lot on the ice, which means he's taking to the refs a lot too, and they don't appreciate that. I continue to compare him to Matthew Barnaby.

I'm wondering if he didn't feel like playing that way got him to the NHL, and it took him awhile to let that stuff go. At least I hope that's it, and his recent play & behavior is real and sustainable.

So he's never done anything horrible. The worst he's done is rack up PIMs and agitate. Right.

We continue to make backups and AHL goalies look like Brodeur. What the ****. ****ing score a goal.

Agitator is a nice way of saying troublemaker, at least when you rack up a lot of PIMs and misconducts.

Leighton looked great until his misplay behind the net, and now he looks like feces. Again.

I've been saying that eventually his luck is gonna run out and it is. At least this game. It's amazing that it took this many games for his horrible rebounds to bite us in the ass.

If we lose this game there quite literally is no longer any more excuses for Leighton. All of his flaws that prevent him from being an NHL goalie are on show this game and he's no longer winning.

And an agitator (or troublemaker if you're arguing semantics) is a traditional role in hockey. So, once again, I'm not sure what the problem is.
