The Next Great Goaltender In Philadelphia May Be Sergei Bobrovsky

from Frank Seravalli of the Philadelphia Daily News,

The statistics are far from surprising.

Last month, in a survey conducted on Philly.com, 75 percent of Flyers fans listed goaltending as their biggest area of concern for the upcoming season - not the forwards, defense, or even the usual suspects like management and coaching.

Flyers fans have been clamoring for a goaltender since, well, Ron Hextall. Or even Pelle Lindbergh, who tragically passed away almost 25 years ago.

Sergei Bobrovsky, a 22-year-old Russian, is poised to be the next big name.

“Could Bobrovsky make this team out of training camp? Without a doubt,” one Flyers team source told the Daily News. “He has a lot of work to do. But I can guarantee he will be competitive.”
