    G Alex Lyon re-signed for 2 years

    https://www.nhl.com/flyers/news/flye...rs/c-299432330

    is this our answer in goal until Carter Hart is ready?

    Lyon had the Flyers over a barrel, he pretty much had to be re-signed. Are they supposed to go into camp with zero healthy goaltenders?

    I was actually kinda hoping they'd go after Carter Hutton, but oh well.............

    2 year contract is interesting. Guess they like him.

    He isn’t better than glass joe. He will be waived if the other 2 are healthy. Can’t see them carrying 3 goalies

    If all 5 are healthy and still here in October one will be loaned out unless tmhey start stolarz in the echl to get time

    Don't see any contract details yet other then a 2 year deal.

    clearly surpassed Stolarz last year and made a good case to be an NHL backup.

    Correct!
    If they can trade Neuvirth, Lyon can back up Elliot this year & next year Hart (although it could be Sandstrom).
    Meanwhile, this year I can see Stolarz backing up Hart on the Phantoms.

    I like the Lyon signing....but I can't for the life of me not understand why Hextall hasn't gotten Craig Anderson. You only have one more year of Elliot so he's gone. Trade Neuvirth for ANYTHING. Then have Lyon and Anderson and if hart outplays Lyon then send back him that the phantoms

    Lyon's a hard worker with limited talent\ability. He's worked himself into a capable AHL starter\NHL backup role. That's fine, and it's admirable. A GM who understands that, and understands that's all he'll ever be, will be fine with him.

    Counting on him to be more is asking for disappointment.

    With the above caveats in place, let's just say I'm prepared to eventually be disappointed.
