His best shot is probably a bus crash that kills the four goalies in front of him.

Why do people keep "speculating" about his chances? If this guy could play at all, why was he held out and avoided like the plague during the goalie-go-round of last season?

Flyers goalie situation is simple, they have one guy who might be able to play, one guy who can play rarely, two guys who are European prospects that few have seen and none say are ready right now and they have Backlund who will probably end up on the waste heap soon.

There is no real competition as I see it for the goalie job. There might be some fake competition (e.g. Ersberg versus Bernier lol) but we are gonna go in with the same combo.
