It's disheartening to realize that Homer really has no friggen' clue what he's doing.

* A baaaaaaaaad penalty by Briere.
* A bad clear
* A point shot that Leighton stops
* A rebound whack by a Kings player who has inside position on the defenseman that Leighton also stops
* A second whack by another Kings player standing right next to it, popping the puck over his pad

But yeah, it's all Leighton's fault.

Yeah. He bounced it straight off his chest, then stared at it as what's-his-face pounded it past his stick, instead of knocking it clear...or you know, swallowing a rebound, like Bob and Boosh do. He's had perhaps two good plays all night. The rest are a result of his size. He looks slower than last year...there were a couple times where I was screaming at him to get across the crease. At this point, the D should just shove him back and forth themselves. It might be faster.

No, he said 6-1 tops. SOD is OG.

Even for Leighton, this is historically bad.

I mean, literally culpable on 4 goals and hasn't made an above-average save all night.

He will blow this btw, 6 goals will not be enough.

This should be a 6-1 thrashing and instead the Kings will most likely win.

Agreed. Leighton is what he is which is a not very good (AHL level) goalie who some times gets on hot streaks. At best he should be an NHL back up. At best. I do not want him to fill that position on this team. F him. I don't care what he did on a cinderella run hot streak. I want to have the best team possible and he doesn't help that with his ability or (waste of a) cap hit).

Hexy is on WIP now. Praising the Flyers' organization, per usual.

I wonder if he's still having numbness issues with his foot? That would explain the slow movement. It would also piss me off beyond belief.

I meant more the first 3 goals leading up to it. One thing if that was the 1st soft goal he let up. . . but he's already got 3 in front of it. This one wasn't the worst. . . but when you lump in everything else it is just getting ugly and he is clearly not ready to start again until we play the Devils or Islanders.

And btw, this Panic! at the Disco routine in the d-zone we're suddenly seeing, I'd say all the guys are scared ****less of letting the Kings get anywhere near Leighton and are just panicking.

Why is Leighton playing? This reminds me of the finals where we had enough offense but Leighton couldn't make any big key saves....

Nah. One would have to use the Schwartz to force MegaMaid from suck to blow.

Well let's be honest, who the heck knows what they're doing? You just have to accept that it is what it is.

The state of Flyers TV commentating has sunk to pathetic depths where the guys are terrified to criticize a single player or the team in general.

Therien on WIP is 10x better tbh.

What pisses me off is that Leighton probably has numbness in his foot but Holmgren clearly has numbness and dumbness in his head.....

I think numbness issues with a certain GM's brain may be the root cause of all this.
