There is a lot to like about the Flyers' signing of unrestricted free agent goaltender Ray Emery yesterday. In tandem with Steve Mason, the team may not have elite goaltending on paper but a split-time arrangement and healthy competition could work between two players who want to be here and feel like they still have something to prove.
You can't argue with the price tag or the one-year length...

Claude Giroux contract is official and Ray Emery is your new, and very likely, No. 1 goalie for the Flyers.
Gonna be very interesting to see how Emery and Steve Mason work out in net this year. You got to be impressed with Emery's attitude about being a better team guy and understanding that goaltending is a tandem operation.

The NHL draft is in the rearview mirror, the free agency period is upon us, and that means one thing in Philadelphia. Among a littany of trade rumors and speculation as to which free agents they will attempt to sign, the Flyers were once again in the market for a starting goaltender.
Other than last year when Ilya Bryzgalov was entering his second...
After buying out the bloated nine-year, $51M contract of underperforming goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov, the Philadelphia Flyers were once again in the market for a netminder. Steve Mason was the only viable option they had as a starter, but now they’ve brought in some competition for him.

Follow @BBSuns // Per Darren Dreger, goaltender Ray Emery is expected to return to Philadelphia and battle Steve Mason for the #1 goaltending position. Expect Emery to sign with Flyers. Expect a 1 yr deal. Strategic move to establish starter role and bigger $$ down the road. — Darren Dreger (@DarrenDreger) July 5, 2013 Emery’s career stats courtesy of espn.com: [...]
It looks like Ray Emery will join the Flyers and their goaltending carousel. The Fourth Period is reporting he’ll likely sign a 1 year deal. Emery was 17-1 with Chicago last year with a 1.94 GAA and .922 Save %. He could work very well in a split situation with Steve Mason. Has Philly figured something out? Finally?
15 minutes to go until free agency gets...
Hope everyone had a great Fourth of July!
11:45AM: The free agent market opens in about 15 minutes. It will be very interesting to see what the Islanders do today. We all know that they are in desperate need of goaltending. If the Isles do not get a goalie today, relax, it is not the end of the world. The goalies are the market are underwhelming, and a trade might be a better route...
In case you have not been following the twitter world...
Ray Emery will be joining the Flyers.
Daniel Alfredsson will be signing with the Wings shortly.
Scuderi may be deciding between the Kings and Penguins.
Dan Cleary has a decision to make, Dallas or Detroit.
from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,
Speaking of Clowe, the Habs were willing to do a short-term deal with him but it’s believed the UFA power forward wants to get a bit more security, and who can blame him. Keep an eye on the Devils, I believe they are the front runners for Clowe.
The Devils need a replacement for power forward David Clarkson, who has drawn a ton of interest...
