In Philadelphia, all it takes to create a goalie controversy is for the starter to have one off night, and the backup to pick up one or two decent starts afterward. Then the media runs rampant with speculation on who should become the new goaltender, and boom, goalie controversy. If the Flyers somehow manipulated time to get Bernie Parent in his prime on today's team, with today's media, he would be ostracized after every less-than-stellar performance and his viability would be instantly questioned.

Philadelphia's perception and understanding of goaltending is whacked.
