Meanwhile, the Flyers get nothing for an asset that has value right now - and all the while are stuck paying a backup close to 2m in a salary capped league. The best thing Philly could do is turn Bobrovsky into a very good asset (preferably on defense) and sign a backup goalie for no more than a 1m cap hit.
Very, very good point. Some say he can take over in 2-3 years but why such a long contract for Bryz then? Also, if we can't get OEL or Gormley, there are plenty of other options to trade him in a package for a different dman like Bogosian, or a very long shot in Luke Schenn. Lol that won't work too well though because they won't trade him for pretty much anything
