I'd like to see this team explore back up options. It seems everytime there are viable back-ups on the market or available through trade, the flyers either sign or trade for Boucher / Leighton. And it seems they do it because they are "good" guys.
Dan Ellis was available for a backup role (and potentially able to fill in if Bryz imploded), Ben Bishop is a young tender I like the look of, who went for cheap to Ottawa, and seems a filler until Lehner is ready for a starters gig there. Those are just two names that come to mind. I am certain many other examples exist.
Had Bryz started poorly like he did last season, or if he gets into a funk, It safe to say that with Boucher and Leighton as options 2-3, this team is ****ED!
