yes. what happens when Stolarz gets here? God forbid if Snider is still around. if Stolarz has a average first 2 years they will likely trade him and bring in some 30 year old sieve at a stupid contract. but that will be ok. because if your not doing anything in your first 2 years you wont amount to anything.
nobody of course has any ******* patience.

I already said this. Why would anyone even care. If we stuck with Bobrovsky, Bryz would of been lumped in with everyone else. Nabokov, Vokoun, ect ect when we were talking about the goaltending that summer. I just love the fact how you get on Bobrovsky because he had a rough playoff series as a rookie. Its happened to plenty of rookies before him and it will happen again.
So what happened? the Flyers traded Bobrovsky and Bryzgalov imploded. big time. our veteran goaltender looked far worse then Bobrovsky ever did in his first season here.
Because of Snider the Flyers will have zero patience. Trade the kid, bring in the vet on a bad contract. nope, nothing wrong with that at all. LOL
