    something never change... but an upgrade from Boucher and Leighton. Maybe?

    Neuvirth does have starter talent, but his propensity for getting hurt destroys any shot he has of building up consistency and confidence throughout a season. Hard to lock in on your game when you spend time alternating between the crease, the bench, and IR. If you got a healthy season out of him I do believe he'd be a middle-of-the-pack-or-slightly-better starter, but I don't ever bet on getting a healthy season out of him.

    Relying on Neuvirth is like buying a ticket on the Titanic and expecting to reach port.

    I can kind of stomach the three-headed mediocrity of Elliott, Neuvirth and Lyon this season but next season has me biting my cuticles. Does Hextall resign one of the vets to tide the team over to Hart time?

    I am praying Stolarz comes into camp and steals a spot.

    Far, far, far better chance of Hart stealing a spot, IMO.

    Gotta think Lyon has a far better chance than Hart.

    Lyon has, and deserves, first shot at supplanting the dynamic duo; however, I firmly believe he is the least talented among he, Stolarz and Hart.

    Not impressed by Lyon at all.

    I'd be extremely nervous if he's on the roster all season.

    I was more confident in Lyon than I was with Elliott and Neuvirth late last season.

    Lyon was great in the AHL playoffs

    Thats a good sign

    Hexy should have never traded for Mrazek and given Lyon more of an opportunity in the NHL last season.

    Alex did distinguish himself decently in his 1st taste of the NHL.

    I don’t get why some on here are down on Lyon, goalies do take longer to develop, it’s not like Lyon was a total disaster.

    He is ok as a spot starter. I mean if you have a guy who can give you 60-63 starts or whatever he is ok. You can do worse. Like Mrazek, the goalie situation down in Carolina, whoever that was backing up in Edmonton. Is he ideal? No, but I could live with him as a backup if we did have a horse in goal to start

    Yeah, which is exactly the problem. :laugh:

    Considering our situation, he could end up seeing significant time.

    Coming up and playing a game or two in an emergency? Sure, I can live with that. But if he makes the team as backup (which I can’t imagine happening)... oh boy...

    What is the average save percentage of backup goaltenders in the league. Not counting guys who came in as an emergency backup

    It’s not out of the possibility that Lyon ends the season as the Flyers starter.

    Lyon reminds me of Connor Hellebuyck style of play...

    If they were in a situation where both Neuvirth and Elliott are out, they're far more likely to make a trade than just punt the season with Lyon.
