Ranking the Flyers’ prospects: Goaltenders

For the past two weeks I’ve ranked the Flyers’ top prospects as I see it. In case you missed the first two installments, click here to view my forward rankings and click here to view my defenseman rankings. Today I’m taking a look at the Flyers’ goalie prospects. Flyers’ fans know that the position of goaltender has been an enigma for the franchise for some time now.
