Kukla's Korner Hockey

From the Philadelphia Inquirer’s Frank Seravalli:
It has been 13 days since Patrick Kane’s low, blocker-side snipe ended the Flyers’ dream in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup finals.
Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren said yesterday that he has not spoken to the agent of Michael Leighton, the man who let in the goal that silenced the Wachovia Center and the Flyers’ season.
Leighton, 29, is due to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1.
By not talking to Leighton’s agent, former NHL goalie Mike Liut, Holmgren does not appear overly eager to sign Leighton to a long-term contract. And with the NHL draft kicking off Friday night in Los Angeles , Leighton could become a name of the past if the Flyers are able to swing a deal for one of the league’s younger goalies like the Kings’ Jonathan Bernier.
