  • The fans now scream for a franchise goaltender and no one would be pushing for Bob as the answer regardless of how well he may have done that season in the AHL
  • The team then signs Bryz, and Bob has no future here. And he has even less trade value

In retrospect, Bob's fate with the Flyers was sealed when he got pulled in game 2 against Buffalo.
You missed where I said Vokoun should have been brought in that year. Our goalies would have been Vokoun and Boucher
