Leighton's season is basically done

The news on Michael Leighton has come in and it isn't good: he will be out 8-10 weeks with a severe high ankle sprain. That means the only way we'll see Leighton in net for the Flyers again is if they get deep into the playoffs, something that isn't likely to happen with Brian Boucher taking over as the starter.

Check my previous post for my thoughts on Boucher and the new backup goalie(s). It's going to be a struggle for here on out for the Flyers. Someday maybe the team will actually value the goaltender position.
