Yeah I can't really blame the team for not giving him the kind of contract that he wanted, and we probably wouldn't be so remorseful if not for Emery's hip issues. But I think if he was willing to sign a reasonable contract the Flyers would have liked to have him back. Statistically he was pretty good with us, and no doubt he would have been an upgrade over what we had after him.
