In fact, I think it's more likely that tandem could cost us a playoff spot, than win us the Cup.
Holmgren handcuffed this team with a massive liability at the most important position from the outset... which is absolutely idiotic.
Yea, this is the common theme being a Flyers fan. Not ever picking up a solid goalie. I will say that Leighton was solid for us all season and throughout the playoffs until the finals for us. Bouch was also very good for the final game against the rangers and the first two rounds. So, if Leighton improved it's possible that we'd have a chance with our D. But now that we've got Bob in net, I like our chances even better!
Also I would like to thank you all for the intelligent discussions and prefer that we keep it that way without attacking each other. I respect all of your opinions and will only attack someone if they deserve it.
<<<<<< As you can see by looking at my arm I am a serious fan and really enjoy discussing hockey with other knowledgable fans. We are all working towards the same goal of winning it all. Let's go Flyers!!!
