Updates: Flyers Come to Terms with Sebastien Caron

After another awful display of goaltending by a player in a Flyers uniform, General Manager Paul Holmgren announced last night that the Flyers had come to terms with Sebastien Caron, currently playing in the Swiss Elite League.  Caron has previously played for the Pittsburgh Penguins, Chicago Blackhawks, and Anaheim Ducks.

Where it stops, nobody knows...

Caron would be another addition to a goaltending carousel that has become the laughing-stock of the league as the Flyers have rotated Ray Emery, Michael Leighton, Brian Boucher, Johan Backlund, Jeremy Duchesne, and now Caron – if the goaltender clears waivers at noon EST.  It’s not necessarily set in stone that Caron will clear waivers, either.

There are a lot of teams jockeying for position with the Flyers in the playoff hunt and if it’s compliant with their current Cap state, look for a team to claim him off waivers.  If he does clear, he’ll be available for the Flyers tonight as they take on the Montreal Canadiens at the Wachovia Center.  I don’t think he will start tonight, but it’s safe to say he’ll be the starter for a game in the near future – the Flyers wouldn’t bring him all the way back from Switzerland to have him sit on the bench.
