I agree that it was a poor backup plan. I'm just saying what the organization's point of view is.

I'm not sure if I agree with your second statement. I think that would have been predicated on how well Boucher was playing. If Boucher was playing well, then I think he'd carry the load and Backlund would have been on the bench.

All of this said the position the Flyers are in is no different than if any other team lost their 2 starters. They'd be onto their 3rd and 4th (5th with the 4th option being hurt) options too. If anything Homer would probably argue that the Flyers are better off since Boucher is a better 3rd option than what the majority of NHL teams have. is offline   Reply With Quote
