Niitamayki (sp) is a free agent so he's probably a goner...dont know Biron's contract situation. Emery used to be a good goalie....bad attitude...we'll see.
I should mention I think its fine the Flyers are taking a flyer (hehe) on Emery but as a starter thats reckless...backup is fine.
Good one Millz lol. The Flyers are suppose to re-sign Niitamayki and get rid of Biron. They totally lost faith in him. Doesn’t make much sense because he’s played pretty well for them. We’ll see what happens though during the next few months.
There’s no denying that Marvo. He’s a good goalie when he has head screwed in straight. It’s just that he’s immature, he thinks of himself first before his teammates. He also doesn’t show up to practice in time, and when he eventually shows up, he thinks its no big deal.
Emery's problem is that he's got a big head. His ego gets ahold of him and just ruins him as a player. In My Opinion, I feel he has great potential to be an awesome goalie. He's fully capable of being a fan favorite. But his biggest downfall is he's an asshole, he's got poor work ethic, and coaches dont know how to straighten him out.
I agree that emery has the potential to be a great goalie. I really hope that Ottawa buying out his contract and him playing a year in the kontinental league has straightened him out because i think if he stuck around the NHL he could make a team really happy...or really pissed off...but hopefully he realizes that and gets his shit together.
Nice research Ice, when all this stuff was happening, they were talking about it all the time on the sports shows I listen to. A funny thing, one time when he was late in practice, the team just put a tie as the goal keeper with all the hockey teams on there. It must of been a huge slap in his face. I love it.
