Biron or Clemmensen are the best choices. Both can be stop-gap starters and both have experience as that and as backups. Biron actually has experience at being a regular starter so I'd rather have him. Plus I like him. Clemmensen would probably be a bit cheaper though plus I expect the Rags to re-sign Biron as they were happy with him.

Also, if this organization gives Leighton another shot as a backup, which is something I could see them doing, I'll have an aneurism.

The board doesn't automatically revolt at all 35+. It depends on the situation. Many of the situations aren't good. For instance, Hedberg for two years...I don't think that would be good. I'd consider him a 1 year guy.
It's not at all stupid. Lilja did a solid job. And it was a good signing. He played more games then it was intended for him to play, and he did a good job. it's a good thing to have an experienced gy as your 7th D man.

Ignoring the Islanders season because it's the Islanders, Biron has put up a .915 save percentage or better three of the last four seasons and even in the one season he didn't he still had a good winning percentage. He has 7 or 8 seasons as a starter under his belt and with good save percentages in the majority of them. That's not the sign of an untalented player. Had a .915 in 72 games with the Sabres in 01-02, a .913 in 52 games with the Sabres in 03-04, a .918 with the Flyers in 07-08, a .915 in 08-09, and an overall career save percentage of .911. The guy's not the greatest but at least acknowledge the facts that his career numbers and consistent status as an NHL player point to a decent player and that he played well for us in his three years with us (how many goalies have we had that posted consecutive .915 save percentage seasons with at least 55 games played in both seasons?). Basically, he's not trash as some of you would call him.

He not trash but from what I recall from when they let him go....they weren't crazy about his ho-hum "demeanor" but it was from a starting goalie standpoint. As a backup yeah he would be fine but I would just rather him not come back to this team. He's tainted with the Rangers anyway...

I'm wit ya on this. he looked real good last year. you need a guy that has potential to take over if need be and he's young and still evolving and he wouldn't threaten the mental midget. somebody on here said boosh. that somebody needs to be shot.

When asked if a player in the system could be Flyers' backup, Paul Holmgren responds and says: "Michael Leighton is in our system."

Homer, GTFO. Now.

If Holmgren extends his contract or offers him a new one, I'm going to be looking for one of you guys near Philadelphia to track him down and shoot him (Holmgren or Leighton, your choice).

Are there not some kind of antibiotic the franchise could take. Michael Leighton was on this team, but turn the page for crying out loud. He was mediocre with a couple of future HoF Dmen still around the top of their game in front of him. I shudder to think what the team GAA would be with Leighton backstopping a run-and-gun team.

After the way he lied to the club, I think he's persona non grata in these parts.

Hmm. Good question. Let me see if I can change it yet.

No. Not yet.

I may have to ask one of the globals to change it back

If we can get the Leighton of the 2010 Boston Series, then I wouldn't mind him as the backup.

Considering we will get career Leighton

To quote my own facebook status from June 10th, 2010 ""Well well well F***YOU MICHAEL LEIGHTON! You should have EASILY save three of those four goals. SWEET JESUS! I pray that I never have to see you in a Flyers jersey again. Also, Flyers blew about a half dozen chances to win it at the end of the third and in OT. It was a great season, but frankly at the moment I'm not in the mood to be happy about it."

I'm still feel that way. Biron or who ever but NO Leighton!
