If there's blame to be had in San Jose, how about lobbing some at Joe Thornton and company. If there's ever been a player that's been given the benefit of the doubt for incredibly poor playoff showings, Thornton has been the guy. Marleau also has a tendency to disappear when things get tough. Nabokov's numbers for his career in the playoffs are 2.26 goals against average and .913 save percentage. Those are some damn fine numbers.
Beat me to it.... Nabby is an incredible goalie and no one should be pointing the finger at him for the Sharks mediocrity in the playoffs.

But I'm very happy that Homer isn't ignoring the issue that we have no top draft picks in the near future.

Great news, welcome to the fold Brosky!

This still leaves the door open for a Turco-like signing (assuming Emery is done) for a year or two while the team sees what they've got in the youngsters.

They'll need somebody for roughly 2 years so they can let this kid develop.

Numbers are swell, and a lot of the blame goes to Thornton, Marleau and others whose performances drop off a cliff.

Nabokov just seems to have the Cechmanek like habit of allowing backbreakers at the worst possible time in the post season.

agree or disagree, it's a common criticism of him.

Nabokov also sucked at the olympics, he just isn't good under high pressure and also already 33 or 34. I believe he would want a pretty long contract and I'd rather get Turco or Ellis along with Schneider. Or even try Boucher and Schneider in a 40/40 split. I just really want Schneider.


Reading this thread, no-one has given Holmer some credit.
He just gotten one of the better goalie prospects in the game, but he's just such a bad GM please fire him.

Whats the point of trading for Schneider when we have now Bobo and Eriksson waiting in the wings? I know they arent a sure thing, but Schneider is as much as a question mark as these guys are. One thing Schneider does have is one season where he tore up the AHL. He hasnt done well in the NHL.

I say sign someone like Turco, and get Bobo or Eriksson alittle more time to develop.

Holmgren has never been criticized as an eye for talent...in fact, he's pretty much universally praised on that front by even his harshest critics (myself included).

Everything written about him seems good, but at 6-1 174, isn't that a little small?

So go with Turco/Ellis next year backed up by Boosh. Or let one of the youngsters battle i n camp and give them the back up role and let the other start in the AHL ?

Let's chill on that. If he was one of the "better goalie prospects" in the game, who wanted to be in the NHL, then he would have been drafted (unless he opted out for whatever reason). Late bloomer sure, but they don't belong in that conversation as it stands. Let's wait until he's in our camp, and on the ice under our supervision before we get that far. Just like all the other UFA's he's signed.

Ohh so Nabby is a Cechmanek like player now.... And Esche, Boucher and whoever else are better...

its an agreement to come to camp which says to me he wants an nhl deal or to be able to go back to the khl and make some cash. i see someone on a two-way deal coming in as well as possibly another young guy. cant wait to see this kid play live

My only concern with Bobrovsky is if he does sign a deal and it's a two way, he's going to the AHL. And of course, we all know who the coach is in Adirondack.......

He probably wants out of the KHL before the fall apart. Not to mention their KGB style of management is shady katie.

He's likely to go to the AHL anyhow.

Even if Emery can play again why would you risk it and sign him?

He might be able to work himself back, but that kinda of condition sounds risky, and we don't want to end up with the same fiasco of this year.

Oh he will. However, what worries me is the fact that Idiot Stick is the coach in the AHL and he has a history of ruining young players and top prospects. Honestly, the Flyers need to re-evaluate the direction in Adirondack and fire that jackass who's the coach there. I don't want him ruining Bobrovsky or any more young players.
