I don't really care who the Flyers choose but it surprises me to see Flyer fans willing to accept another Band-Aid approach by Philadelphia to solve its chronic goaltending issues. How does bringing a 40-year old after a 1-year hiatus solve the issues they were unhappy with Bryzgalov or the string of journeymen before him?

As for trading away prospects, you get what you pay for. If Holmgren wants to rely on two reclamation projects like Mason and Thomas, both of whom had mediocre seasons the last time each played, he'll be right back in the same situation next summer as he is now.

Adding Thomas will be an experiment of its own.
