there is a couple clues that I see here... The fact that it is "higher ups" says to me it is above Homer. I understand Snider was very upset when the Flyers were apparently down to Backlund in the playoffs and exploded in a rage that that was unacceptable... I see that to mean that Mr. Snider was fed up with goalies being the possible reason the Cup hasn't come to Philly -- ok, maybe a reach -- If Snider or Luukko is stepping in, it has to be major, and maybe something that Homer would normally not do... I feel that the Organization has the aroma of the Cup in its nose and may be willing to move for the Cup THIS season... or next... or both... and looking for Bob to take them there down the line.
JvR for an established goalie that is or can be easily signed for a couple of years... not beyond belief to me.
I agree, but I would not be in favor this, unless the goalie is someone ridiculous like a Ryan Miller or Henrik Lundqvist. If it is for Vokoun or Giguerre or something like that, I will not be happy. I don't ever think JVR is going to pan out to be a superstar, but he is definitely on his way to being a solid 60 point type player IMO.
