I also think Bryz will probably play out most of his contract and then at the latter end of it head back to mother Russia to retire in his homeland.
What a player HAS done is irrelevant to evaluating a signing. It's about what a player WILL do. Will Bob ever be as good as Bryz the last few years? Maybe. Do I think there is a decent chance Bob will be better than Bryz over the next nine years? Yes.
