Short term, Leighton is almost back and will eventually be given the chance to win the starters job. or settle into a platoon of some kind. Will he be sent down because he represents more of a cap hit then Boucher? or cap hit asside, will he be sent down anyway if Boucher shows he can at least back-up Leighton admirably. Or, will he be kept up regardless and platoon (or back-up) Leighton.
Long term. Next year, is he in your plans? What happens to Boucher? Do you go out and find another goalie to complement Leighton and leave Bobrovsky on the farm to develop. What is his role in the Flyers organization. Stop gap goalie or potential starter.
Thanks a bunch, good problem to have imo.
Leighton will have to do a conditioning stint at first when he gets back. We all hope Bob will remain up and split time with Leighton, Boucher will be scratched or waived most likely.
Next year, Boucher is a UFA so I would say we go with Bob and Leighton
