Who will be the Flyers next starting goalie?
 
Poll coming.

Edit: I realize some of these options are not legit #1s, but this is a special situation.

Mason

Boy this is a grim poll

LegionOfDoom91 06-25-2013 04:17 PM

Well Miller and Luongo are the only clear #1's on that list so I'll go the safe route and say Mason.

Damaged Goods 06-25-2013 04:17 PM

I forgot to include Halak.

SchennSational1022* 06-25-2013 04:27 PM

Emery for a few years, then Mason. That is what I hope for at least.

I got it

Damaged Goods 06-25-2013 04:29 PM

Thanks.

I voted Mason but I don't think he'll succeed. I think the Flyers will continue to get crap to mediocre goaltending until they something unforeseen happens or a draft pick pans out (fingers crossed for Stolarz to be that guy).

Gert B Frobe 06-25-2013 05:25 PM

I think Mason is the starter - question is - who is the backup? I'm thinking Emery or Halak. I think we find that out tomorrow. Holmgren must have had something in mind or else why would he have waited to buy him out when he cut Briere a few days ago? Logic doesn't always apply with the Flyers though so who the hell knows...

Flyerfan4life 06-25-2013 06:05 PM

i can see NO reason why the club wont at least give Mason the chance before replacing him as number1..

obviously they need to bring in someone else as u cant run with 1 goalie, but i dont see a legit #1 being signed and given the reigns right away..

funghoul 06-25-2013 06:14 PM

who care? its philly. their gonna suck.

Flukeshot 06-25-2013 06:50 PM

I'm going to guess Naby with the expectation he splits the games pretty evenly with Mason.

Wiqkid* 06-25-2013 06:54 PM

Gonna be average at best no matter who it is. Mines well go cheap. Get a great goalie when we get a good defense.

BringBackStevens 06-25-2013 07:22 PM

Don't know but I hope whatever Homer does is a smart move that maintains some semblance of flexibility.

Emery for 1-2 years max.
Luongo if he is bought out, 3 years max.

Trade options Halak and Hiller, would need to be VERY cheap acquisitions with their health concerns.

CanadianFlyer88 06-25-2013 07:25 PM

Please, hockey gods, do not allow Steve Mason to be the clear cut starter for the Flyers in October 2013.

That would be nice, but in the real world I think your negotiations have to start at 3 years minimum.

Perhaps, but I would pass then.

To me, success under the cap is most reliant on these factors:

1) Success from the draft
2) Maintaining cap flexibility
3) Well planned out roster with properly staggered contracts

achdumeingute 06-25-2013 07:49 PM

Can you add a "Doesn't matter we just need someone to blame" option. That's my vote.

FreshPerspective 06-25-2013 07:54 PM

Mason seems like the logical choice given his play but I don't trust his mental fortitude. I said Emery but only if Luongo is not bought out. Luongo seems like he's big on the Flyers radar. Should be an interesting week especially with the draft...

InfernalDark* 06-25-2013 07:57 PM

Smith.

boodangleroo28 06-25-2013 08:00 PM

Giroux for Bob

flyersfan018 06-25-2013 08:12 PM

Wouldn't mind Luongo or Miller. Honestly depends on the price.

3Fs 06-25-2013 08:33 PM

I picked Mason. I believe if Luongo is bought out and Flyers pick him up that he and Mason will share the goalie duties. Whoever has the better GOA or SV % will be named starter for playoffs. Both goalies understanding this from the start of season.
