Paul Grant has been doing a series, looking at players and asking "Can you do that again?"
Today he looks at Ray Emery,
Why it will be tough to repeat: C'mon, a highly touted and capable goalie coming to the Flyers? How could that possibly go wrong? Plus, challenging for the No. 1 gig and actually being given the No. 1 gig to start the season are two different things.
Verdict: Emery is back on solid ground when it comes to the quality of his work, but he's jumping from being a backup in Chicago's smooth organizational waters into a starter in Philly's waterspout. And, not to mention, into a completely pucks-to-the-wall high-offense division. Even though he's on a one-year deal and he's capably backed up by Steve Mason, the guy doesn't stand a chance. Send your cards and letters now, to beat the rush.
