There is no telling how the Flyers play if the goalie makes big saves as opposed to letting the other team score twice in the first 58 seconds of a game.
We played from behind almost the entire Boston series, a few big saves early on and we'd probably still be playing. The guys in front of Boucher had no confidence and played like they already lost.
Either way it's a moot point. The Flyers ran into a stone wall named Tim Thomas, a guy they have never had good success playing against.
I agree with you, but the problem is fitting Vokoun/acquiring Vokoun without crushing the depth we've created.
Moving Carle and/or Versteeg to get Vokoun I think creates a minimal hit on our depth while creating a legitimate goaltending threat between our pipes.
