Boucher a better fit with Unionby Eric Schwartz
Two Philadelphia sports teams had problems last night and a contributor to these boards, King Ed found a solution to both of them.
Problem No. 1: Brian Boucher can’t save a shot to save his life. This was evident yesterday in the Flyer’s 4-3 loss to the Wild where the team squandered 2-0 and 3-1 leads.
Problem No. 2: The Philadelphia Union are lacking goal scorers. In the team’s debut, offensive chances were few and far between in a 2-0 loss to the Seattle Sounders.
King Ed’s solution: Trade Boucher to the Union. For those of you wondering why that would make any sense check out the game clip here from nhl.com. The moment comes at the very end of the clip. In overtime Boucher had a shot go off his glove and behind him. When he went to slide back into his crease he inadvertently kicked the puck in the net. That’s right he scored on himself.
The way Flyers fans feel about Boucher right now I don’t think they would mind one bit if he got shipped off to a team that could use better use his goal scoring touch – or should I say, kick.
