Bobrovsky was also being actively chased by seven other teams (Boston, Anaheim, Toronto, Detroit, Chicago, Montreal, and Minnesota). Signing Bob was a no brainer. I'm not dismissing Little, but it certainly makes it easy when you've got seven other teams chasing after a goaltender to make him a very good offer with the chance of playing a lot.
I'm hopeful that eventually, the Flyers land that goaltender of the future to groom. Stolarz could be that guy and there's nothing wrong with bringing in Ericsson to compete for that spot as well. As others have pointed out, Ericsson has a history of playing well throughout his entire career.
I think others on here will tell you that I'm really high on Stolarz and that he's in a great situation here in London with the Knights. It looks like they're going to run with him now and he's gearing up to playing a lot of hockey down the stretch. I'll give Little his due here. He scouted a good one in Stolarz.
