There was an article on ESPN earlier in the year which was fairly in depth interviewing bob clarke and detailing the flyers goaltending situation over the past 10-15 years.

Bob Clarke actually said something to the likes of "we would rather dedicate 5-6$ mil into a top forward/defenseman then a goalie, cause you have a better idea what you're going to get in the long run".

Clarke used detriot as a model for a top tier team that has won championships without spending a huge amount on goaltending.
