Flyers – #4: Felix Sandstrom

The Flyers have three goalies right now. One is really good: Carter Hart. Another shows shades of being really good: Samuel Ersson. The other shows he is a fairly capable backup in this league: Sandstrom.

Having one standout goalie is something every team wants. Having two is a luxury. Having three who can play at he NHL level is special. Someone will have to go and it looks like Sandstrom would be that guy. There is an outside chance the Flyers could trade Ersson if the return is something really high or if the Flyers become buyers.

Most likely, there is a playoff bound team that could use a backup just in case. If that is the case, they will probably have Fletcher on their hot line. Sandstrom could be a good fill in for a team that needs him. He may not fetch much…maybe a mid tier (third or fourth round pick) unless goalies start dropping like flies around the league. Hey, you never know. A team could get desperate.
