If he posts another Vezina like season then people should start to talk. Whose to say he wouldn't have completely floundered under the pressure of the playoffs? There are way too many question marks for people to be upset about Bob.

The biggest problem I have is all the negativity. The team was built to WIN, going to the Stanley Cup Finals etc. I don't know too many fans who would have been happy waiting for a goalie to "develope". Obviously now it looks like a better option, but at the time the Flyers NEEDED a #1 goalie. Sadly the moves don't always pan out, but I'm not upset with the move, the choice of their goalie yes, but moving Bob no.
He's the only reason they were in contention till the last weekend of the playoffs.
