I Hope Paul Holmgren Is Happy.

So without fail the Flyers have goalie issues to the start the season. Even before Michael Leighton's "minor back injury" we had reason to worry, what the hell are we supposed to think now? Brian Boucher will most likely be the starter, and Johan Backlund will most probably back him up seeing they want Sergei Bobrovsky to get started in the AHL. So once again Holmgren has left us with no back-up plan.

When Leighton was originally re-signed, I made a prediction: He will either be sub-par or he will get injured. So far both have been proven. He wasn't playing great (but I guess you can't really judge his play by watching two games) and was then injured. So we have lost our so called "starting goalie", and have to rely on Boosh for a month.

So we now have issues right off the hop, and honestly it's a real piss off. We can't aquire a goalie for several reasons. One, no one worthy of taking is available, and two we already have an overload on goalies. So I'd just like to congratulate Paul Holmgren for once again failing misserably. He took a gamble on Leighton for the starter, a back-up most of his career, with no back-up plan what so ever.
