So, fun facts...
Bernie Parent, our undisputed goaltending canon in Flyers' history, only played for the organization from the age of 22 to 33. And he lost 2.5 seasons to shit I didn't bother to research. Just know that he wasn't there. It wasn't his choice, I'm sure, but it's something working against him.
Parent came into the league with Boston at 20 yrs old, just like Hart did (only with Philadelphia). But what's interesting is their win totals and their GSAA. Bernie had 16 wins through 2 years. Hart has 40. Bernie had 32 losses. Hart has just 26. Bernie had a -7.34 and -8.84 GSAA. Hart has a 6.97 and 4.47 GSAA. (Bernie also had an ungodly 72.65 GSAA in '73 to his credit, which Hart will likely never match, but the point I'm trying to make is that the kid has a jump start on Bernie's Flyer career.)
Noe, it's s going to be tough for Carter to match the peak performance of Parent, Lindbergh, and to a lesser extent Hextall. But if he takes care of himself, and he doesn't price himself out the way runningbacks in the NFL are doing these days, Carter could overtake Bernie in just about every statistical category conceivable (Flyers history only).
If I'm not mistaken, the same can be said for Provorov with respect to Howe, too.
