I understand that Vokoun signed a hell of a deal in Washington, but i would rather have Bryz. He is heading into his prime and has been an elite goalie(i know Vokoun hasnt been bad either) Plus he is much younger.
I also realize one argument will be if we signed Vokoun to that cheap contract carter or Richards might not have been traded. I feel like Snider and Holmgren made up their mind this offseason that there was something wrong with those players, whether in the locker room or work ethic, they weren't gonna stay in Philadelphia past this offseason. Holmgren was upset probably because he put some much stock into the kids that they would turn their problems around but they never seemed to.
The flyers made moves that they thought would help the orginazation and its unfair to past judgement now because the season hasn't even begun. So many people have written us off already just cuz we traded Richie and Carts. I feel like thats the typical philly fan and its sad. Im extremely excited to see what Claude Giroux does this season with all the opportunity to become a superstar in the league.
