The Flyers placed the disgruntled goalie on waivers this morning. Leighton was stuck in a triangle in Philly with rookie star Sergei Bobrovski, and vet Brian Boucher. He's in the first year of a 2-year $3.1 million dollar contract.
Its a long shot, but if the coaches don't think Mase is really ready, maybe some time in the AHL is necessary. Leighton could be a solid option.
