RALEIGH NEWS & OBSERVER: reports the Carolina Hurricanes have placed goalie Michael Leighton on re-entry waivers.

SPECTOR'S NOTE: He was earning $600K at the start of this season so any team claiming him now could have Leighton at a very affordable price of less than $200K.

Isnt this the same guy we picked up off of waiver 1-2 yrs ago, and then traded him for a low draft pick..

He's the same guy. I'm not sure if we got anything for him.

We should have picked him up this time, just to mess with phily, they would have had to traded for halak,.

We could have waived him the second the trade was done

They have the waiver priority over us...

Don't think they picked him up to save the team. With Emery out they probably needed to fill the spot on the Phantoms with the call-up of Johan Backlund. Even with Boucher playing so horribly they haven't used Backlund meaning they have no confidence in the kid.

Leighton's numbers for the season:

GPI - W - L - OT - GA - SA - Sv - Sv% - GAA - SO - PIM - Min

7 - 1 - 4 - 0 - 25 - 164 - 139 - .848 - 4.29 - 0 - 0 - 350
