I'd rather have a goalie who was already interested & motivated

we've been hoping that jeff carter becomes interested & motivated out there every year and it hasnt happened. and guess what...it never will. you can't teach interest and motivation. if a player hasnt shown it on a consistent basis for so many years, he isnt just going to turn the corner

IMO giving Bryz that kind of money for so many years, just gives him more reason to not show interest and motivation
Have the other plans in Philly worked out better? You have a chance to get a guy who would play on a much deeper team in Philly, I can guarantee you that if Philly had Bryzgalov they would have had a much better chance than the team showed against Boston. BTW, the only reason Phoenix even made the playoffs was because Bryzgalov made it happen in the regular season.
