It seems like the Orange and Black may have a new No. 1 between the pipes when the puck drops next season. It was reported on numerous Web sites and blogs that Ray Emery will become the Flyers' goalie next season.
Talks with free-agent goalie Biron are on going but it is believed he is asking for too much money and too long a contract.
No one in the Flyers office confirmed or denied anything about a possible Emery signing.

But it seems like Emery’s agent, J.P. Barry, has a different opinion.
“We have been talking for several weeks now. Paul has done due diligence on Ray. I'm hopeful it will lead to a contract,” he told CSN Philly.
The Emery rumor is nothing new -- we reported last month that the Fly Guys might take a risk on the controversial goalie.
He last played for the Ottawa Senators before having his contract bought out after he feel into trouble on and off the ice. He spent last season in exile playing in Russia.
Is Holmgren playing coy and will the Flyers sign Emery? Nothing will be official until the free agency period opens July 1.
Now what do fans think about "Sugar Ray" being the new No. 1 goalie? Time will tell.
