Sorry you guys lost to Boston, I was hoping you would pound the snot out of them. However, I have been saying for a couple of years that Philly needs a goalie to win a Cup. Where is that Chris Shafer guy? He was quite insulting in how he was certain Philly didn't need a real goalie to win a Cup and I kept telling him he was wrong, over and over and over. I am actually sorry to be proven right in this case since I believe Philly had the best chance to knock Boston out of the playoffs.
I don't think Theodore is a long term solution for your guys, but he would have been great for you this season. I honestly thought your team should have gotten him for the playoff run because he had a stellar year on a much weaker Minnesota team. He wouldn't have cost you much, hadn't played enough games to tire him out, and would have done terrific with your defence in front of him.
Vokoun might be the short term answer, but he will cost more than you might think. Look to LA or Vancouver and try to get Schneider or Bernier/Quick if you want a long term solution. Bryzgalov would be great, but will want huge dollars. Holmgren has screwed your team's golaie situation for so long, though, that I doubt he gets it right this year.
Calling Chris Shafer, calling Chris Shafer: aren't you going to come and tell everyone how Philly doesn't need a goalie? Where is our resident expert? I really want to know his opinion, now.
There won't be any changes. Bob was reliable for the majority of the year and just lost gas in the final 20 or so games. He will be next years starter
Leighton if he comesback 100 percent healthy next year will be the backup. Boucher is as good as gone. Sad way to end his nhl career
If Leighton is not 100 percent, a good idea is to sign a solid backup that can start in Alex Auld
A bigger issue is the defense. Pronger can't be relied ever again to be 100 percent. You guys need another franchise type D in the background. Even if you have to trade one of Leino, Carter, prospects in the org that should be done
