Starkbaum was Austria's starting goalie and at times carried him against all the other teams. Watching highlights though (and only that) he did let in some easy goals. Seems like an AHL goalie who would compete with Heeter. Raffl would most likely compete for an NHL spot but play in the AHL. Raffl seems to have some good solid two way ability with some offensive step.
Also Flyers confirmed the interests.
so basically Raffl is Mika Pyorala v2.0
