Emery, 30, spent the first part of the 2009-2010 season with the Flyers before injuring his hip. He was 16-11-1 in 28 games with a 2.64 GAA and a .905 SV% with the Flyers. The Flyers let him walk after they thought he career was over after a labrum issue in his hip. Last year with the Blackhawks, he was 17-1-0 with a 1.94 GAA and a .922 SV%.
Nabokov, 37, would be an interesting choice. He spent the past two seasons with the Islanders after heading the KHL following the 2010 season. After the 2010 Stanley Cup Finals (but before he left for Russia), the Flyers acquired the rights to sign Nabokov from the San Jose Sharks before he became an unrestricted free agent. In 41 starts last season for the Islanders, he went 23-11-7 with a 2.50 GAA and a .910 SV%.
Both would be solid choices to work with/challenge Steve Mason between the pipes. Plus, with a solid backup, the starter won't have to play as much as Bryzgalov played last year.
