    The Philadelphia Flyers have filled a need at goalie a couple of weeks after buying out Ilya Bryzgalov, signing Ray Emery to a one-year contract, the team announced.

    The contract is worth $1.65 million, a source told ESPN.com's Pierre LeBrun.

    General manager Paul Holmgren called Bryzgalov's contract a "costly mistake," and the buyout saves the team nearly $6 million under the salary cap for each of the next seven years. Bryzgalov was two seasons into a $51 million, nine-year contract he signed in 2011.

    Emery, who played for the Flyers in 2009-10, spent the past two seasons in Chicago.

    I knew before the season was over that Emery would sign elsewhere. Best of luck to him in Philly.

    Seriously? We let him walk for $1.65 mill? What a f*cking joke

    He deserves the chance to start. He wasn't going to really get that in Chicago now of days.
