This kid isn't as bad as everyone makes him out to be. Boucher is a more experienced goalie, but Leighton is still a young player. He'll give us good depth if Aebischer decides to leave us this summer.

Good luck here, Michael.

Good Luck in Hamilton, hopefully he can muster up some kind of competiton down there for some playing time once Danis is back, i'm not expecting much, just some goaltending depth for the season.

I really think he's going to be playing here. Or at least get a shot. Especially if Halak doesnt play well tonight, consider Leighton has to be with us for awhile before he cant be sent down.

I think that he cannot play in the AHL without being placed on waiver so Halak is going to go back to the AHL when Leighton arrives.

I think Halak should be our #1 goalie until he drops the ball

Maybe this kid deserves a little bit more respect than he's getting. His horrible stats this year can be put on his poor team. (Niittymaki is a good goalie..)

GO LEIGHTON!

I think that we need to let this kid show us his stuff before we make conclusions. You are right. I just liked what Halak showed to us.

I'm not against Halak in anyway. I love Halak, he's my goalie in my fantasy pool for the future. But Leighton isn't as bad as everyone is saying. I know its probably because we didnt nothing else, but this guy has #1 potential in a few years. He's a good addition.

You bring up a good point. a lot of flustered fans may be bashing him because he was the only player tradee today.

Click on the box scores for todays game.

Says who is sitting, they seem to have him as number 49, maybe it will change but i doubt it

He's been #49 his whole career, he won't be changing it.

Who thinks he gets a shot against the Sabres?
