    The nhl radio segment that mentioned the flyers should go after carolina ufa goalies, i believe started with a St. Louis Blues fan saying they should trade Jake Allen to the flyers.

    It was a reasonable decision. I suppose we should have known Hakstol was going to run him into the ground, but he's given the team 55 games of 2.65 GAA. If he can play 10 more games this year at an OK rate, that's about all you could have hoped for/expected.

    But he still should be traded given he is a UFA and we have Myers and Morin who both should be added to the team at the deadline.

    I'd be fine with re-signing him.

    Provorov-Ghost
    Sanheim-Gudas
    Morin-Myers
    Folin

    Trade Hagg instead. He's worse and worth more.

    The Red Wings want a first-rounder for Howard, who's a free agent. He's going to want 5M+.

    BOOM.

    It's literally the definition of insanity. Let's just bring in or re-sign someone who is "solid" on the cheap. Can't keep going down that road. They will probably need to explore the trade market.

    If they trade Hagg...sure. But I don't see it happening.

    Again, I'm saying what I want, not what I expect.

    Even you're saying he should be traded, but it's probably not going to happen.

    I don't care what Detroit wants for Howard, he will likely be a free to sign with anyone including the Flyers on July 1st. With Bobrovsky and Varlamov likely to get more interest Howard will probably be hard pressed to get 5+ million, but if he does the Flyers can afford to pay him that for a couple of years. Either that or they can continue to do what they have the last few years and be stuck with junk like Elliott and Neuvirth. Like I said above, it's the definition of insanity going down that road again.

    I do not know who... off top of my head.. Jimmy Howard? Probably the best name I can think of..
    I did not see what @The Madrigal said.. but yeah Jimmy. We also have Stolarz... who is ok for .905-.910 SVPCT, hopefully.

    Saying something is the definition of insanity over and over again when it's A. not the same road and B. the thing that everyone says is the definition of insanity is not actually the definition of insanity is the definition of insanity.

    I'd trade our 2020 first-rounder or our 2nd this year for Jack Campbell.

    Reality is, after Bob and Varly, all the other UFA's come with big question marks. Nothing guaranteed with anyone.

    But that seems to be the way with all goalies. Look at Bob with .906, Price at .908, Lundqvist .907, Quick .901, Holtby .912. let along what has happened with Schneider. These were the best of the best just 2 years ago.

    I wouldn't love brining Elliott back, but nor would I hate it. He was never going to be a pace horse on this team, that was a mistake by the coach (& GM). But if he's a TANDEM goalie, then fine. He's still Flyers property. Short of him pulling an Umberger and lying about his health, give him the off season and a spin at the end of this season, bring him back, he'll be cheap, and he's solidly average- a huge step up from subliminally awful. The term and $s will work in the teams favor. He's already here, already signed for a cheap prove-it contract, without inflating his price, nor likely his demand, to go elsewhere.

    The difference this time is they have Hart. Hart > Neuvy.

    Once Elliott is healthy, it will be interesting to see how he plays until the end of the year. He was playing very well his last 9 games with us before the injury. If he plays 15ish games and remains healthy and plays well, who knows.

    Find out their location so I can fly there first thing and smash in their foreheads with a tack hammer.

    Gimme a Hart - Khudobin tandem next season though in all seriousness.

    "Back-up" was fine as opposed to needing a starter, which I solidly believed the Flyers would up until recently (and reserve the right to tout as "I was right ALL ALONG" if anything changes with Hart ;)). The best-case scenario would be for a near 50 / 50 split between an ever-improving Hart and a 1B type. I would love to think that Stolarz could be that goalie, but his injury history is too significant to put eggs in that basket.

    I would add Antti Niemi's name to possible candidates. He has been reborn in backing up Price, often for long stretches. He is on a $950,000 contract that ends this season.

    Yeah, a 50/50 share is a good idea for next year, assuming we find someone reliable and Hart doesn't steal the undisputed-starter spot.

    I wouldn't be comfortable with Stolarz as that 1B, though. I'm all for letting the youth take over, but two super inexperienced goalies is just too risky for my taste. Especially since I'm not super high on Stolarz to start with. It would be like me being a mod on here... just asking for trouble.

    No opinion on Niemi. I haven't seen enough of him this year to have an opinion worth a damn.

    He makes me feel bad. I'm done feeling sad. No thank you.
