What isn't he comming to play in North America? Someone said he didn't want to play in the AHL... could he change is mind before the next season or the next one?
yeah that was me. I guess I should have said that he regreted it, but he didn't sign his past season because he didn't want to play in the AHL, he wanted a one-way deal. He later said he should have taken that deal because Malek was arguably (I disagreed) the Flyers top goaltending prospect. Now it is clearly Antero Niittymaki and Malek might want to look behind him and watch out for David Tremblay.
there is no way he goes to a conference rival like toronto and/or the rangers, there is too much a chance the guy will come back and burn us... he has shown he has talent.. but i could believe that he may go to either colorodo or maybe St.Louis who has apparently a big 0 in their organizational goaltending depth behind osgood and may want a good backup for him, or maybe a starter in malik so who knows? it is up in the air where this guy is gunna go, but i can guarantee that if he is demanding what he is and at 27? years old (26 or 27 i think) then he is going to have a rude awakening at how things are negotiated in american hockey
hey who knows, i am sure all the maple leafs fans would want to trade antripov (aka fallen jesus) for him staight up lol, but no one wants that bum now lord knows i dont
I bet Malek is the best goaltender not playing in the NHL too right? we have never heard that before . Anyway i say give the guy a 2 way contract offer where he could play in the AHL if he doesnt impress. If he says no then trade his rights at the draft and move on. its not like the Flyers dont have enough solid goalies in their system anyway.
This should not be an issue Malek should be signed and brout over and compete for a job. If not on the Flyers then Phantoms and if not there we have a little team out in Trenton he can play for. To not even see what we got just makes no sence. Its not like letting Korovkin go this guy Malek has won championships. Clarke sign him already!
