Not concerned at all. By that I mean I don't think they'll do it, and if they do, I wouldn't really care.

Bob is no Carey Price. I haven't lost faith in Bob, but if we trade him it's going to be as part of a package for a better goalie.

Link? Wheres the evidence for that? Putting way to much faith in Homer.

There is 0 reason to trade Bob. None.

Oh and I didnt say Bob was Carey Price. My post said how Habs fans TREATED Price when he was young.

There's no evidence because this is all hypothetical.

Not really for two reasons. First if a team wants to give us something good in return I'll take it. Bob has potential, sure, but there's no guarantee he can live up to that (and we have a guy in the system in Eriksson with just as much potential). Second, I really don't think the Flyers would do it unless they had a guy like Vokoun or Byrzgalov signed already (in which case, see my first reason).

I don't have much faith in Holmgren, but I can't see him doing this at all, unless we traded him in a package that included bringing in a young provern goalie - but I really can't see this happening at all.

Nope, but I don't necessarily think it would be a terrible thing if he did.

I think it's unlikely he will be moved, however, because he probably doesn't have a ton of value around the league.

If he is moved as part of a package to bring a goalie in then I wouldn't be too upset...depending on who we get. That said, Bob looks like he will be a legit starting goalie in a year or two and I wouldn't move him unless it's an offer we cant refuse.

While I don't think they should be (or will be) actively shopping Bobrovsky this summer, if a deal is made where we can get an established #1 goalie in this league and Bobrovsky goes the other way it would be ok for me. I think he had a really good rookie season, a season he probably should have spent in the AHL really which makes it even more of an accomplishment, but he's not untouchable by any means.

I'd honestly love to see him bloom here, but if he is used to get a real #1 for the next few years at least, it'd be worth it I think. We still do have Eriksson in the system, but still, I hope that Bob will have a great career, wherever he may end up.

I think he'll be fine, they will do the right thing and keep him.

That being said, would it surprise me to have Homer/Snider want to package him due to "mental weakness"? No, not in the least.

I'm more worried that Bobo gets no help next year, with Leighton backing him up.

The talents there, so there's no way to say whether or not Bob can reach that level. Besides, what is Carey Price besides a talented, successful regular season goalie.
