Till this is fixed, it does not matter who the goalie is.
In 2010 we had MFL, but the whole team played disciplined till injuries and fatigue did them in. And MFL looked like a legit starter for a while.
Since then we lost Pronger and a slew of 2 way forwards: Richards, Carter, Lapy, Pow, Betts, Gagne (he is back now.
Also, I have very little confidence in Flyers goaltending coach. Someone in Columbus and St. Petersburg, Russia fixed Bob's flaws in a shortened season, where Reese failed.
There was a study on Reese's goalies with/without him. There's no evidence that he's different from an average NHL goalie coach.
The main reason the Flyers haven't posted good GA/G totals the last few years is poor SV%. The first place to investigate SV% is with the goalie.
