I don't understand how anyone who watched the playoffs can say we have the goaltending to win a Stanley Cup. Boucher is WAY too inconsistent to be a #1. Bob has work to do. He might get there, it might be next year, BUT - he isn't there yet. My guess, he needs at least 1 full year maybe 2 of grooming before he is ready for the #1 job.
Bottom line, we need a goalie. None of the players will say that is why they lost, because, the rest of the team played like **** also. However, if you forget "who is to blame", then you have to admit - we need a legit goalie to compete for a cup next year.
I have to believe - this is just Homer not throwing Boucher under the bus. He doesn't deserve to be thrown under the bus. But, I suspect come July 4th we will have a new #1 goalie on the Flyers. If we don't, I will be very surprised.
