Should the Flyers start looking at Greiss?

Theodore's best days are very far behind him, and he is not a good/capable starter. Why do you think he consistently folds under pressure and had Varlamov yoink his spot in the playoffs the last two years?
I think Greiss, if given a shot, could play as well as Jose, and has a lot more potential ahead of him.
I'm not saying we need to go out and trade for him, but it certainly couldn't hurt to scout him a bit and possibly kick the tires on a deal to see what it would take.
No matter what does/not happen with Greiss, though, I don't want Theodore. His mental game is garbage, both Leighton and Boucher probably have him beat there.
