<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>thepmofgreece</b></div><div>I think Muse is the casualty. He is older so his window to be successful is closing. Maybe he would agree to sign with Reading if he wants to stay in the system but realistically he will probably sign somewhere else. The more I think about it, the team has to make a decision on the future. They have several options to contemplate:

1) Sign Mrazek (2 or 3 years), move Neuvy and Elliott, and have Stolarz (need to sign him) as NHL backup with Lyon (sign him as well) and Hart in AHL
2) Sign Mrazek, move either Neuvy or Elliott, let Stolarz walk, and have Lyon and Hart in the AHL
3) Let Mrazek walk (you don't lose a 3rd rounder), Have Elliott and Neuvy work the NHL, let Stolarz walk, and have Lyon and Hart in AHL
4) Let Mrazek walk, have Elliott and Neuvy in NHL, let Lyon walk, and have Stolarz and Hart in AHL
5) Let Mrazek walk, trade Neuvy, have Elliott and Stolarz in NHL, and Lyon and Hart in AHL
6) Let Mrazek walk, deal Elliott (who might have more trade value), let Stolarz and Neuvy split NHL time, Lyon and Hart in AHL

I'm sure I'm missing one scenario, but you get the idea. Personally, I don't let Mrazek walk unless I think Hart will be ready with only one year of AHL time. Hart is clearly the future. Don't forget about Sandstrom in the SHL. If I'm Hexy, I do option 1. It gives Hart 2 years of AHL time to get ready to take the reigns and gets back some value for the other two goalies.</div></div>

I agree regarding Muse. There is likely a 2-way deal in his contract for AHL/ECHL. I think he might sign elsewhere at the end of 2018-2019, but for now, he is somewhere in the Flyers system.
Scenario 1 is likely if Mrazek plays well down the stretch and into the playoffs, say, winning the first round.
Scenario 5 is likely if Mrazek falters and they stumble into the playoffs and lose the first round in convincing fashion.
Ideally Hart is ready to start the 2019-2020 season, and realistically start the 2020-2021 season. Sandstrom may be a year or two behind Hart, but the number of decent goalies generally isn't a bad problem to have.
