Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reported this morning that the Flyers aren’t looking to trade a goalie, but if the price was right they’d prefer to move Michal Neuvirth.
If price was right. Neuvy. That said, Hexy likes having two strong goalies. https://t.co/kabxIwp83j

This has been assumed for a while now since Neuvirth’s emergence as a reliable number one option in net.
Neuvy (28) was one of the top goalies in the NHL last season and single handedly took the Flyers to a 6th game against the Capitals last spring: 32 GP, .924 SV%, 2.27 GAA, 3 SO
Constant health problems and a recent track record not as strong as Steve Mason would indicate Mase is preferred.
Mason gets the nod tonight in Montreal as he looks for his second straight win.
