The Flyers went out and made a big signing today when they inked a deal with free agent goalie The Invisible Man. Poor starts from Steve Mason and Ray Emery have led them to this move and it has not yet been determined which of them will be dropped from the roster.
Griffin, as The Invisible Man is known around the league, is the only known invisible person in the world. A veteran goaltender who won the 2004-2005 Vezina Trophy with the Winnipeg Jets, Griffin hopes to turn the season around for the Flyers.
“The advantage with Griffin in net he’s much better than Mason and Emery,” said Head Coach Craig Berube. “Although we’re not even sure he actually exists, I feel a lot better with nothing between the pipes than I do the other options available.”
Indeed, there is no actual proof of Griffin’s existence. Desperate for wins, the Flyers are willing to risk it because as Berube already said, nothing is better than what they already have.
