The Philadelphia Flyers capped off an unimpressive season with a loss to the playoff-motivated Ottawa Senators. Even though Ron Hextall’s team was mathematically eliminated from the playoff run a few games before, the fight to win was somewhat present. Nevertheless, the Flyers season is over and the focus now should be on improving the flaws in the system.

The Flyers goalie situation continues to be the walking wounded. Add Ray Emery to the list.
Emery is day-to-day with a lower-body injury and did not make the trip with the Flyers for two road games this week in Carolina and Toronto. Rookie Anthony Stolarz will back-up Rob Zepp in Tuesday's game in Carolina.
Steve Mason will be evaluated on a day-by-day basis as he comes closer...

Regardless, Emery could get another 25 starts or so as the Flyers’ backup goaltender and act as a reliable [...]
If it’s on Ray Emery’s creaky knees, it might be up against a wall, to relieve some pressure.
In a battle of backup goalies, Emery and the Flyers wound up outplayed by Tampa Bay Lightning backup Anders Lindback and the surging Bolts, a situation which cost Philadelphia an opportunity to gain home ice advantage in their upcoming first round playoff matchup against the New York...
On January 18th Steve Mason signed a contract extension with the Philadelphia Flyers that will net him $12.3 million over the next three seasons.
It’s pretty good money, and Mason has earned it. He came into this season with high expectations. He came into the Flyers organization looking like a solid backup to Ilya Bryzgalov. But his stellar play at the end of last season gave...
