as someone who suffers from avascular necrosis as a result from a Slipped Capital Femoral Epiphysis, i can gurantee you that him working Razor had no acceleration nor cause for it. he could have been suspended in zero gravity with no excercise to that area and he still would be at his level of condition.

how come no one mentions the fact Price has started/played every game for montreal except for one apparently..

and look how bloody sharp he is..

i dont think a athlete at this level would be worn out, all this talk of running Bob out of gas is overblown i think..

Bobrovsky has been wonderful, but Carey Price is in an entirely different world when it comes to goaltending. This is particularly true of their developmental path.

Besides, Price might not be tired now, but if they don't slow him down I'd love to have this conversation come April or May. It simply doesn't pay to have your starter go ~70 games.

yea im not talking 70 games out thou..

im talking at this point...Bobo's so young i just dont think he can be gassed yet.

this whole topic of whos playing will become much more interesting and heated once Leights is back in the hunt..

say what everyone will about each goalie but im excited to watch teh fireworks as they all via for starts.. should make for some excellent hockey.

and my Leighton home jersey is on its way.. WOOTs me..after all even thou im West coast, the Flyers are my HOME team...

guys, what's the deal with your golden rookie Bobrovsky.

Short term/Long term.

Short term, Leighton is almost back and will eventually be given the chance to win the starters job. or settle into a platoon of some kind. Will he be sent down because he represents more of a cap hit then Boucher? or cap hit asside, will he be sent down anyway if Boucher shows he can at least back-up Leighton admirably. Or, will he be kept up regardless and platoon (or back-up) Leighton.

Long term. Next year, is he in your plans? What happens to Boucher? Do you go out and find another goalie to complement Leighton and leave Bobrovsky on the farm to develop. What is his role in the Flyers organization. Stop gap goalie or potential starter.

Thanks a bunch, good problem to have imo.

Because Price has been in the NHL several years, has a career high of GP much higher then 35 or w/e it is for Bobrovsky, and he was a top pick?

Leighton will have to do a conditioning stint at first when he gets back. We all hope Bob will remain up and split time with Leighton, Boucher will be scratched or waived most likely.

Next year, Boucher is a UFA so I would say we go with Bob and Leighton

Price also plays a way less demanding style, physically and is accustomed to an NHL travel schedule and in-season lifestyle. Bob is like six feet wide and four feet tall in his stance. Skating around like that is hard on everything, never mind just the hips. Plus he has never had such a heavy schedule where there is not time to just relax between games, you're either traveling or practicing or playing.

Also, agreed regarding Carey Price being in a different world right now. His anticipation, recovery, and composure after making the first save last night were pretty unreal.

I'm sure the rest is doing Bob well. He'll be back in soon and playing fine.

Doubt it, Flyers may send Leighton down for conditioning.

Price has several NHL seasons under his belt. Bob does not.

Rookies generally aren't ready for a full nhl starting load. it takes a large mental toll to stay focused for 60 minutes, and scrambling around in the butterfly is tiring, and not really the best thing for you. I mean, try dropping into a butterfly position, and then imagine doing that and scrambling around a bunch.

it's something you need to work into. look at neuvirth; he got worked into an injury. Emery came back from the KHL and developed an ab issue. Leighton has whatever the hell is happening.

the goalie position is very different from being a regular skater

I feel like 50 starts for Bobrovsky is good. I want him fresh and red-hot for the playoffs.

Another thing to keep in mind is that when guys like Luongo get 65 or 70 starts in a season, they generally just look drained towards the season's end and into the playoffs.

IMO, the teams discovered Bob's weakness with angles and lit him up. So, may be, he is benched while Reese and Bob are working out this problem.

Or he was just tired from playing 11 games in a row?

I might be wrong, but if you look at last few goals scored on him- they were from really bad angles.

That's true, but now he is on the bench for 2 games in a row. Boosh got us 2 wins in these games, but was not a "hot" goalie to ride the streak.

Unless Bob starts later on today, Lavy has shown to always play the goalie after he gets a win. So even if Boosh lets in the ****** ass goals once or twice a game, if he gets us the win Lavy will play him. Bob is our starter though, and I think he gives us a better chance of winning, but what can you do. For as long as Lavy has coached he has rode this method. (except the beginning of the season where he split the games evenly.)

I think this quote just proves my point:

The opportunity work with Jeff Reese was important for him,” said Flyers coach Peter Laviolette. “You continue to work on your game and you just don’t get that chance when you are playing game and game after game
