Who will be the Flyers next starting goalie?

Poll coming.

Edit: I realize some of these options are not legit #1s, but this is a special situation.

Well Miller and Luongo are the only clear #1's on that list so I'll go the safe route and say Mason.

Emery for a few years, then Mason. That is what I hope for at least.

I voted Mason but I don't think he'll succeed. I think the Flyers will continue to get crap to mediocre goaltending until they something unforeseen happens or a draft pick pans out (fingers crossed for Stolarz to be that guy).

I think Mason is the starter - question is - who is the backup? I'm thinking Emery or Halak. I think we find that out tomorrow. Holmgren must have had something in mind or else why would he have waited to buy him out when he cut Briere a few days ago? Logic doesn't always apply with the Flyers though so who the hell knows...

i can see NO reason why the club wont at least give Mason the chance before replacing him as number1..

obviously they need to bring in someone else as u cant run with 1 goalie, but i dont see a legit #1 being signed and given the reigns right away..

I'm going to guess Naby with the expectation he splits the games pretty evenly with Mason.

Gonna be average at best no matter who it is. Mines well go cheap. Get a great goalie when we get a good defense.

Don't know but I hope whatever Homer does is a smart move that maintains some semblance of flexibility.

Emery for 1-2 years max.
Luongo if he is bought out, 3 years max.

Trade options Halak and Hiller, would need to be VERY cheap acquisitions with their health concerns.

Please, hockey gods, do not allow Steve Mason to be the clear cut starter for the Flyers in October 2013.

That would be nice, but in the real world I think your negotiations have to start at 3 years minimum.

Perhaps, but I would pass then.

To me, success under the cap is most reliant on these factors:

1) Success from the draft
2) Maintaining cap flexibility
3) Well planned out roster with properly staggered contracts

Can you add a "Doesn't matter we just need someone to blame" option. That's my vote.

Mason seems like the logical choice given his play but I don't trust his mental fortitude. I said Emery but only if Luongo is not bought out. Luongo seems like he's big on the Flyers radar. Should be an interesting week especially with the draft...

Wouldn't mind Luongo or Miller. Honestly depends on the price.

I picked Mason. I believe if Luongo is bought out and Flyers pick him up that he and Mason will share the goalie duties. Whoever has the better GOA or SV % will be named starter for playoffs. Both goalies understanding this from the start of season.
