If - and that's a big "if" - Greiss fell to the Flyers' choice, I'd be in favour of giving him a try. Leighton is projected to be back in 6-8 weeks, which is a lot of time to have a look at a potential goaltender. And I'm very uncertain about how Leighton will look coming off back surgery.

I agree with G the D about the long shot of a rookie bypassing the AHL and playing high-quality goal for a whole NHL season. Then again, Greiss hasn't exactly lit up the NHL (2.77 and .906 in 19 games) or the AHL (2.70 and .904 in 141 games). Beyond these numbers, and his great game against Canada in the Olympics, I don't know much about Greiss. At this point, with Leighton out, I'd lean more towards Boucher/Greiss (NHL) and Bob/Backlund (AHL).
