The case I'm trying to make right now is for Michael Leighton to actually be dressing as the Backup goalie to whomever starts, be it Bob or Boosh.
As of right now we can all agree that Bob and Boosh are both playing at an exceptionally high level. Bob for being a rookie is just rocking, and Boosh as the wily Vet is playing sound, solid goaltending.
Now, Leighton is our number 3 goaltender and there is nothing we can do about it. His roster spot is most likely locked and with all of our goaltending injuries over the past year I do not want to get rid of any of the three of them.
While watching the thrashing we took at the hands of Florida last night, I was hating it for Bob b/c although he wasn't lights out, he played fairly well. It was the team in front of him that just completely failed to do anything positive. After goal number 4 when Bob was being replaced by Boosh, I felt that I would have rather it be Leighton to get in the game.
If Leighton is going to be around he has to see some action occasionally. With our team playing as poorly as they did last night I would have hated to see both Bob and Boosh get lit up. Boosh gained nothing from being in last night, while Leighton could have gained some valuable NHL playing time.
What do you guys think?
