From Snider.."we'll see how it plays out...." "Who knows"

Don't want Emery, Scabokov, or any other retread...Vokoun concerns me a bit and I've said he may be a Beezer situation but willing to take the risk for a couple of years and the right cost. Bryzgalov obviously is the cream of the crop. Meltzer has mentioned Anders Lindback as an intriguing option....said he's a Rinne clone of sorts. Bernier I wouldn't mind....

Having said all this I'm sure they'll screw it up somehow and we'll get some second hand article of clothing off the rack.

Snider’s tone suggested the Flyers are prepared to either deal for a goalie (Los Angeles’ Jonathan Bernier? The Islanders’ Evgeni Nabokov?), or sign a free-agent, such as Ilya Bryzgalov of Phoenix.

Signing a marquee free-agent goalie will be difficult because the Flyers have little cap space.

Snider didn’t see that as a problem.

“If we trade or go for a goalie (through free-agency), we’ll make it work,” he said. “We can make anything work, even with the cap.”

"We were beaten by a totally better team," he said. "The extremes in the goaltending, from their goalie (Tim Thomas) to ours, had an effect on our team. I don't look at it as why this guy only had one goal or this guy played that way. The bottom line is, when you have a goalie playing out of his mind (like Thomas), that confidence spreads to the whole team; the whole team becomes confident. And when your goalie is not playing well...."
