Looks like the Flyers will forever need a Goalie.  They are Cap friendly if nothing else.  Are they not allowed to Draft Goalies???

Yes I thought of Hart, good numbers but it still the Flyers.  If he can play 55 games +/- without getting injured??  Elliot is not that great IMO but I guess having a young stud at backup is not good.  Be like Detroit and have a 35 yr old starter and a 30 yr old backup. (LOL)

Will see, the door is wide open for Hart but a good experienced backup would keep Hart on his toes

Yeah, maybe they should try to get a good, experienced backup.

Someone like, I don’t know, Brian Elliott?
