Bob looked pretty bad as a back up and I think the Flyers did a favor to Bob in trading him; he wan't going to get a shot here once they signed Bryz.

First post after being here for 3 years.
I would have been fine with him starting. It was known from the beginning that Bob was in an overwhelming situation. Players develop and improve over time. Just because he had one bad playoffs doesn't mean it's going to happen every single year, especially based on what we knew of his character at the time.
Saturday night, I like to raise a little harm. I'll sleep when I'm dead.
