Your teams Back-up Goalie to Philadelphia

Its not just me.. seeing Michael Leighton in a Flyers uniform conjures up the worst of bad memories for us Flyers' fans.
The scenario is totally perplexing to me as to why Holmgren would resign Leighton to be the backup to Bryz. Given Illya's inconsistency last year and his mediocre play in the KHL I dreaded the start to this season.
Bryzgalov has been good so far this season but if something were to happen, the space cadet leaves the stratosphere, I DO NOT want Leighton being given the reigns again or honestly.. even starting a game to spell Bryz.

Hes garbage and has no right to be an NHL goaltender.

The Flyers also have Boucher in the AHL playing for the Phantoms, this is not an ideal situation either.

So that being said..
Philadelphia needs a solid backup goaltender.. With a little upside.
Who is available? What would it take?
Not looking for high end prospects like Schneider or Bernier, either.

Jason Labarbera for your least valued asset. Worked with Bryz before, knows his role.

I dont really mind taking Labarbera, Hes much more serviceable than Leighton.. Or is he?
Havent seen him play too much. Hes really into metal, right? Cool in my book.

Uh... did you want Khabibulin? He's injured

Or Danis? But then we're left with Khabibulin.

We have Niko Hovinen...

But seriously, our goalie situation is awfuler. We raise you nothing. Maybe a late pick for Khabi. Good luck!

Steve Mason? It would allow the Jackets to bring up McIhenney.

I think Ben Bishop would be an ideal candidate for this. I know youve got Lehner waiting to take over the starting role from Anderson.
I am not sure what the Flyers would be willing to give up in this scenario.

It seems to make so much sense, but somehow I do not see your organization sharing these concerns. They could have signed a real backup in FA, they could have grabbed one of the Flames goalies of waivers, they could have kept Boucher on the roster instead. All signs simply sign to them not considering Leighton as big of a problem.

Ben Bishop for a 5th. Let's not kid ourselves, it's a backup goalie. Okay okay a 4th.

Yeah Emery for future considerations sounds good

How did he fit in the lockeroom his time with Flyers?

You're welcome to either Khabi or Yann Danis. Give us a warm body or a pick of your choice, and I'd be satisfied.
