Bobby Frose (frosty as he was known on the Flyers) was a very good goalie for us. He was a much more stable and consistent goalie than Pelle and IIRC he carried us pretty deep in the playoffs the year Pelle died. There was a reason that the 2 split starts.
Lindbergh was still the better of the two, you could name a couple guys for a period of time(1 or 2 years) were decent Flyers, but this is part of the ongoing problem, not too many get to the 5 year point in their career in a Flyers uni.
