Given our team's current defensive lineup and position, Theodore isn't really worthwhile IMO. Just use Boucher to start the year, see how he does. If he sucks, we have options in Backlund and Bobo to try in-house.

The last thing we need is Theodore coming in, becoming the starter and being okay during the year, then falling apart under the pressure when games start to matter. We already have guys who can do that and don't need to waive anybody to do it.
Let me repost facts for you.

I can also include stats from last seasons, SV, SA, games played in front of d-men like Greene, Poti etc etc..
Why would anyone want Bobrovsky riding a bench behind Boucher. Whats the point?

If the Flyers have to rely on Boucher as the starter, they're dead in the water. Boucher is a washed up hack. If Bobrovsky is going to be the back up while Leighton is hurt, I'd rather him learn from someone who was a Vezina and Hart trophy winner.
