They were certainly after Turco before and after July 1. Mason, who knows? He blew it by asking Stl Louis for a big raise and they said, FU, we'll get Halak instead. He ended up taking a huge pay cut to be Pavelec's backup in Atlanta. Great move cue ball....
Fact: The Flyers did not sign or trade for a new goalie. Everything else doesn't matter.
I guess I missed the article where Homer mentioned that he was trying to sign Ellis. Do you have a link?
