From Timmy P's twitter (http://twitter.com/tpanotch/status/17534291308):

"If the season started tomorrow, I’d certainly feel comfortable with our goaltending setup right now.” - Homer


Go, find your pillow and blanket forts. Get your tinfoil hats. Your REM's. Hide the kids.

I WOULDN'T!

Whatever. He built a stacked defense and kept the pair like many of us predicted. Maybe we can make a move at the deadline for a goalie.

His next sentence what something to the effect that hed still keep looking and if he can get better, he will. Sounds like positionning more than anything at this point.

Yeeaaaaaaaaaaaah but I feel like he pretty much has to say that. It's not like he can come out and say, "god no I'm not done, those guys ****in blow! of course we're desperately trying to get another goalie!".

Not that that's what he is thinking, but I think most of us kinda figured that it would be Leighton/Bouch a couple hours after the Jody Shelley signing and when Mason was signed for $1.8. This doesn't really change anything one way or the other.

Strictly positioning to drive down Turco's price.








At least I hope and pray.

Throw me in the boat with those guys (i.e. I hope it's just posturing).

Yup just posturing to bring down the price of either Turco or Nabakov. I don't think Holmgren believes that Mason/Ellis are any better than Leighton (although I sure do)

I just hope he doesn't wind up paying Nabakov $4 million because I think Turco is better.

I don't think we even can sign Nabby at 4 mil.

What do you expect him to say? He's not going to say he doesn't trust Leighton and Boucher.

I would question whether or not he is willing to give 100% for a team that tried to low-ball him from the beginning.

Andy Strickland has us as the front runner for Turco. Truth be told, none of us have any clue

Yup. It's *one* day into F/A, and the big dogs remain at large. Say what you want about Holmgren, he's proven that he'll explore every option. There's more to come I think, probably at Carle's expense.

Good, I hope we're done at goaltender. He has to justify that Leighton contract. Either he's a below average starting goaltender making below average starting money or he's a disgustingly overpaid backup to Marty Turco.

You can't give Leighton that contract and then go out and get a starter. You just can't. Way too much money for a backup when you already have Boucher under contract.

Exactly.

Homer did what he has to do as a General Manger. Both Boucher and Leighton are under contract and are on the Flyers roster. Homer has to show faith in the two players under contract rather than saying what is actually going on ("still looking for a real starter").

It's what a GM does, and it's posturing in negotiations for any trades/signings.

This is basically pointless "news".

Just get a goalie. I don't believe he's comfortable with Leighton-Boucher.

If we got Turco, I wonder if he would trade Leighton or would he just trade Boucher?

He won't touched his vaunted defense. He doesn't understand that the goaltender spot is in need of an upgrade. He knew it right after the SCF ended, but since then he's seemed to have forgotten. All of the crappy moves are hard to swallow, but resigning Leighton the day before going into a buyer's market was absolutely the most asinine. Now we have to give up an asset to even potentially fit a real goaltender under the cap, whereas we could have easily just signed one of the cheaper options yesterday with the money with gave Leighton.
