Exactly. Since Philly is a goalie graveyard, we are scared of having two good goalies because of the goalie controversy. But, look around the league - the best goalies have young goalies pushing them daily. You have to think a little competition will keep the veteran working hard and competing (versus a guy who knows he has the job).

Thomas/Rask
Luongo/Schneider
Quick/Bernier
Backstrom/Harding
Miller/Enroth
Lundquist/Biron (not a young guy, but a cheap solid backup)

Nothing wrong with Bryz/Bob for a couple of years. When the kid comes over, he has a year AHL hockey to play IMO. At least.
