Rather have Turco at $2.00m than Leighton at $1.55m.

Rather have Turco at $2.00m than Thomas at $5.00m.

Rather have Turco at $2.00m than Vokoun at $5.70m.

You get the idea. You have to balance talent with cap hit.

Personally, I think we trade him mid-season, for a halfway decent return, unless the unspeakable happens and Rask gets hurt.
I was all for trading Briere because I hated that cap hit, but the guy thrives in the playoffs and that is exactly what we need at this juncture. A better goalie would look great behind our D, but we also wouldn't need him to be that much better. If the focus is on having an amazing defense, the necessity of a top-tier goalie is diminished. Why pay a goalie that much money if his job is made easier by his defense?

The problem is when you make Leighton look good by protecting him. The Flyers don't need a Thomas or a Vokoun, but they definitely need someone better than Michael Freakin' Leighton.
