Ronny Hextall comes to mind. Hardly a goalie graveyard and I wouldn't say the Flyers have had an elite goaltender since him...I wouldn't have considered Bryz to be top 10 before he signed and he has played a defensive team his whole career where as Luongo suits the Flyers system much better IMO.

Luongo single-handedly turned our franchise around when we seemed lost. The only reason why the "fans" have turned on him is because of the emergence of Schneider. Quite frankly if you ask half the people who are die hard Canuck fans they know that Luongo is still a great goalie.

Difference with our franchises won't be put in the same spot light? Don't know the Philly market well enough in terms of hockey as much as I do Vancouver. I would assume that it's not as high in demand as it is here since we don't have a MLB, NBA, nor NFL team.
