Oops...Flyers waive Michael Leighton

Was there a more predictably bad signing than Michael Leighton for two years and $3.1M?  It took barely six months to punt that one.  Let this be a lesson to all general managers out there: when a player has a terrible track record over six seasons, like Michael Leighton's sub-replacement .902 save percentage, DON'T REWARD A SMALL AMOUNT OF GOOD RECENT PERFORMANCE WITH A BIG CONTRACT!
