The age of the multi million dollar closer is almost over, hopefully the Flyers realize that the age of the multi million dollar goalie is coming to an end before the rest of the league beats them to it.
People have been saying this about goalies since the cap era began, and I remember this debate really hit a crescendo during the Chicago/Philly series.

It depends on what a GM values, I guess: two reliable, solid goalies? Or one "elite" goalie and a backup?
