I get the feeling that these leaks come from inside the Flyers organization. If you want to kill the goalie trade talk, float a rumour that Montreal wants Giroux. That is a hell of a jump from the 2nd rounder they wanted for Halak in January. Homer wouldn't even think about this. The goalie situation will NOT be solved via trade, it will be solved via free agency or they will bring back Backlund, Leighton and Boucher and see if Bobby makes the jump. That is still a possibility I am comfortable with.
1. Turco. If he takes a discounted price, he is a Flyer.
2. Ellis. If Turco doesn't sign, then Ellis is likely a Flyer. If that happens, I think you have to bring back Leighton and trade Boucher. Ellis is unproven, so now you have a 1A and 1B and let them determine who is a legit #1 in this league.
3. Sign Leighton as #1 and see what happens with Backlund and Bobby.
I don't think Homer will move a player to get a goalie when he can get one for free or keep what he already has. THEY ARE NOT TRADING GIROUX OR JVR!!!! They BETTER NOT!!!
