My thoughts on Bob...

I don't think he has the potential to be a top 5-8 starter in the NHL. I do, however, think that he possesses a lot of positive qualities, given the lack of coaching he would've had at his specific position growing up in Russia.

Yes, he's athletic and most of his flaws are technical...all of this ground has been covered before. That said, he tracks the puck well, has a solid glove for a Russian netminder, and he keeps his paddle down when moving laterally along the ice. This shows me that he has some attention to detail and that he's coachable.

Sending him to the AHL would be a mistake, especially if the Flyers do nothing to upgrade the Phantoms. Whether the team decides to sign Bryzgalov or Vokoun, I'm sorta indifferent. I wonder if most people have checked Bryzgalov's playoff stats this year?
