Flexible Dryer Duct

After moving my dryer to clean behind it the duct has come loose and I can't seem to get things aligned properly. Would a flexible duct like the link below work for this application? Right now there is a rigid metal duct that is making is quite difficult to attach it to the back of the dryer. It also appears that the termination end that goes to the outside of the home is not flush against the outside vent now...

Flexible Dryer Duct

Flexible duct is a fire waiting to happen.

You should use rigid duct and tape the seams. If you decide to use the flex duct, make sure you remove and clean it regularly. Rigid duct too holds lint and can cause problems, but flex duct is worse, ask your local firefighters.
