The Leighton experiment should end today. Emery was signed to be the number 1 guy, played like the number 1 guy, stole a few games early, and got injured. Leighton played against a series of bad teams, played ok, lots of pucks have gotten through him and missed the net, were stopped by defenders, and the Flyers started scoring goals.
When Boucher played he played great, got almost no goals scored for him, and was injured making one of the great saves of the year. Of course he also was in net while the Flyers were collectively trying to remove their heads from their own hind parts.
I say trade Leighton now. He was a cheap pickup at the waiver price and if you can trade that for a 4th or 5th round pick - take it. This guy is a career backup and minor leaguer so leverage the quality of his play.
Flyers vs Caps today. These games early in the year were absolute barn burners. A couple of the best regular season games with a playoff feel. I am looking forward to this game and hopes that Razor Ray gets a chance today. Over the last 2 weeks the Flyers are again looking like the team that was playing in October. This team will make the playoffs
