Best taken with a grain of salt but interesting nonetheless. HockeyBuzz.com floats the possibility that Robert Esche could be signed by the Flyers for a playoff run.

    Eklund could be a complete moron. I’m pretty sure you can no longer add players this late in the season. Or at least they won’t be playoff eligible.

    Ride the hot goalie.

    I am not sure if the fact that there is no agreement between NHL and KHL if this makes it legal?

    Esche, Emery, Leighton, Boucher….Does it really matter?

  4. Jon B says:

    Boucher is by far the worst at this point. But I get your point.

    “Which brings us to the crux of the issue: How exactly does a team that trades a significant portion of its future to get Pronger to help it erase 35 years of Stanley Cup futility end up with Boucher and some faceless minor leaguer as its playoff goaltending tandem? How does that happen?”

    Post your own thoughts KD (lang), don’t quote the Soap Opera rag of ESPN. Pronger puts peeps in the seats, moves merchandise off the shelves and wears a huge helmet. You don’t see a lot of youth wearing Goalie jerseys these days and a Dan Ellis one wouldn’t be on the top of many christmas lists this year. Goalies get hurt all year long so why not just have 3 interchangeable ones? You got lucky with Marty B for years and there is only 1 of him but He will play too much down the stretch and fizzle in the playoffs again.

    3 for 1 hot goalie rides heeeeeeeeeeeeeeere.

    Wow, I just don’t understand making the Pronger trade and then not going all in to win this year. I actually feel the same way about the Devils. The Kovalchuk trade was great but then I heard they passed on a David Clarkson for Thomas Kaberle trade. You’re either going for it this year or you aren’t, don’t trade half the farm and then kind of try to win it.
