How would you feel having Conklin as a starter?

I was just looking at impending UFA's and saw Conklin has roughly the same hit as Boucher. How would everyone feel about having him as a starter, if the thing with Bob doesn't really pan out? I always liked the guy, and feel for the money he'd get he'd be a good addition. That being said, we do need to get a true number 1 goalie sometime in the future.

Obviously, this is purely hypothetical, and I'm just posting to hear other Flyers fans' thoughts on this

Why? Are the Flyers playing in the Winter Classic?

Seriously, let's focus on someone who will take over the #1 spot and let Bob continue his development, please.

Conklin is not an upgrade to Boosh. No thanks.

Find a real number one to start ahead of Bob. Otherwise find a backup with an acceptable hit and let Bob take the lion's share again.

maybe we can sew together different parts of our 3 backups and make a super goalie... who will be almost as good as a starter.

I recall him doing pretty well the season before this one I think it was? But, why not just re-sign Boosh instead if we are thinking of going that route?

Boosh is proven big game goalie. If you want to sign a guy who is a top 30ish goalie in the league, re-sign Boosh. I am fine with Bob/Boosh again next year. I still think we can win a cup this year with that tandem. We also have Ericsson in the pipes for the future.

Or, We go all in with Bryz or Vokoun. Unless we are doing this, stand pat.
