Ray Emery

I really liked Ray Emery while he played in Philadelphia, and found that it was a shame when he was injured. It was rumoured that he wouldn't be able to return, to any team. He played admirably when he was healthy during his time in Philly. If I were the Flyers, I would make a play for Emery, but not just yet. The trade deadline is about a month away, so I would give Brian Boucher or Sergei Bobrovsky this time to prove that one of them is a legitimate starter. If they fail, I believe Emery should be looked at seriousley. But there would be an obvious issue: where are we supposed to put all of our goalies?


First off, I would place Leighton on either re-entry waivers or tarde him. Now most will say that we need the cap-space. But think about it, there is no award for cap-space, and after the trade dealine no moves can be made, therefore it won't matter if his cap hit is heavy. I would then put Bobrovsky with the Adirondack Phantoms. Now before I'm attacked, if Bob does have a 1-way deal, I would keep in up in Philly and see where to go from there. I wouldn't like to move Boosh, because I believe he has earned his spot on the Flyers and his played excellent when called upon.

So if the Boucher/Bob tandem would prove to be enough, you leave things the way they are, but if they falter I would seriousley consider Emery. Remember, the Flyers have a one month window until the deadline. Plus, if Razor were to perform badly, you could also call Bob back up (again assuming he has a 2-way deal). So when all is said and done, we would have Boosh and Emery with the Flyers, and Backlund backing up Bob in Adirondack. If Razor does well, next year we call Bob back up, let Boosh walk and use Emery and Bob. What do you guys think?
