i can't remember the last time a goalie came up through the Flyers organization and did well.

i think he could be pretty good if given the development system he needs. dunno if i'd necessarily say he'd get it here, because i'm not a big fan of our goalie coach.

well it's the 6th round, literally any player available there is hit and miss.

That's why we keep drafting them. One's gotta stick.

Bobrovsky just won the Vezina.

Niittymaki was the Olympic MVP when Finland won silver, and if not for his hips probably could have made a bigger impact in the NHL. He was struggling before news broke that he was retiring, but I wonder if he wasn't battling this all along, creating an additional distraction.

Stolarz looks like a good one, Mason looks to be rebounding, but we've gotta be patient, and pray Reese is shown the door.

Jeff Reese does not really know how to teach skill so it's easy to teach positioning to a big body.
It's a crap shoot anyway with goalies in the later rounds and size is at least one given attribute that you cannot take away or ruin by bad coaching.

Boucher lasted a good 13 years in the league. Not special but solid and serviceable. Drafted and grown here. Hextall as well

Took a goalie, moving on. Just like with Stolarz, you draft them to see what happens. I have no problem with the pick.

Yep, I don't think about draft position as much with a goalie as I do with other positions. A lot of the elite goalies in the league are late round picks, why not Merrick. Here's to hoping.

Look at Buffalo, they draft Ullmark late, sign Makarov as an undrafted free agent. Goalies can be developed and really you just have to have the proper scouting.

Bobrovsky was never drafted, and won a Vezina, a lot of great goalies are later round picks, sometimes you find those diamonds in the rough.
