He's a solid goalie and deserves a chance to show what he can do behind a well-rounded defense.
Then why bring him to Philadelphia? The Flyers have 1 well rounded defensive pairing, a pairing playing awfully, and a young defensive-minded pairing. And recently, none have played very well.
This team has a lot bigger problems than goaltending.
Boucher should start until the team picks up the play. This is what back-ups are used for. After that give Emery a shot. If Emery hasn't improved along with the team, then he's expendable. Improvement should be the goal, and replacement should really only be used when severe individual regression occurs. Emery's play has declined in accordance with the team's play.
