You don't just see he is talented and give him a shot regardless of how talentless our duo is now.
Agreed. I think even more challenging than the change in the style of the game will be the pace of the game. So much of good goal tending is anticipation, and decisions get made and executed at such a ridiculous pace in the NHL, it's got to be hard to stay in front of the game if you're not used to working at that speed.

If he comes in and proves without a doubt that he is the best goaltender on this team, then I say hand him the reigns. If he shows ANY sign of being not ready, send him down.

I have a feeling that his debut in camp is just a beauty pageant. Even if Bobrov CLEARLY shows that he is the best man for the job, he will still be sent down to the AHL.

He may not dump Boucher on waivers, but a couple of teams could use a decent backup.

Calgary, Nashville maybe, Chicago maybe

As excited as I am about this, better to be patient and just let him adjust in the AHL. Unless he really forces the Flyers' hand, just stick with Leighton. Blech.

IMO the KHL= or slightly> AHL (good teams are better and bad teams are worse). However, the style of game is so different over here that I think Bobo needs seasoning (and has to prove something) before taking the NHL leap. I'd put the odds of him makingthe team out of camp at around 2%. Backlund though I'd give a 30% and boucher a 70%.

So Leighton is at 98% then I take it?

Operative word? COULD!

It is unlikely unless he steals the #1 spot, and being a backup probably wont help him progress at all.

Since we have a smarter goalie coach this time around, they will make the appropriate decision.

It's just absurd that this is a real possibility.
The counter argument to that is if Bobrovsky wows in camp and wins the job, the GM looks correct for not signing a goalie.

Yes, it was the interview during the softball game at the Trial on the Isle. He said he knew signing with the Flyers meant a year or more in the minors and he was ready to do that in order to play in the NHL. Had a great attitude about it -let's hope he's ready soon.

Disagree, for the same reason that you can't give Holmgren a ton of credit for signing Leighton in December. On July 1st, Holmgren had no idea what Bobrovsky's immediate future was. Nobody really did, so it's not like he thought to himself "I'm not gonna sign anybody because Bobo's ready for the big time." Anything Bobrovsky does this season is all gravy, not something that they knew would happen.

Same thing in December -- there's no way that Holmgren signed Leighton thinking "this guy's gonna be our guy for the rest of the season and into next." He signed him b/c we were **** outta luck in goal and had nothing to do.

Big reason why people are against Holmgren -- the guy doesn't really have a plan. He either gambles and gets lucky or he gambles and loses. No way a GM can honestly say he's done all he can do and he's putting out the best team possible when you have a Leighton/Boucher tandem and an entire ****ing offseason to rectify the situation.

Like I said.. It happens every year and every year we have new “talent”. TP is pathetic.

Another clown is Cotsey. I wish both were fired and we could actually read something useful and watch cool NHL highlights around the league instead of Cotseys (this is how you sharpen skates or put tape on stick highlights) Who gives a ****?. Hire Clements and Tucker full time and get rid of Cotsey.

Do you honestly think that Holmgren is banking on that? If Bobrovsky is able to carry a significant amount of the goal tending load this season, it will be a big surprise, to everyone including Paul Holmgren.

Just because you got luckily bailed out of a bad decision by something you couldn't predict, doesn't make the bad decision a good one.

No, he just looks like an idiot who got lucky rather then just an idiot.

That's because Timmy is like Dave Spadaro is for the Eagles. He's not credible.

Which won't happen because he won't dump on Boucher, and the second part of TBD until June.

Listening to your scouts and giving a guy a shot isn't a bad decision whether Bob succeeds tremendously or not. Signing Leighton instead of Ellis/Mason/Turco and going with Boucher as your backup - now that's a horrendous decision.

Either way Bobrovsky is a win-tie situation.

Thanks. They played all those songs when I saw them this summer, but I'm thinking they meant they haven't played them in Canada in two years or they hadn't played them on tour in general in two years (which I think could make a lot of sense). Probably sucks to hear, but I don't get the vibe from them that they'd go around lying to fan bases.

This summer they put on one of the best shows I've ever seen. Asbury Park, and on my birthday. With Frank Turner. It was awesome.
