If that's true, I'll bet it has more to do with being "once bitten, twice shy" by the goaltending history in Philly, short or long term. And by once bitten, I mean people still miss Hextall, and that was like 14 years ago (16 since he was any good).

Edit: Plus this:

Yeah but I think that has more to do with the expectations that Philly had for Bryz on his way in. Richards and Carter get shipped out, in comes this new, highly-touted goalie from the other side of the country who is supposed to be the missing piece to the championship puzzle... and then... well, you know the rest.
