The problem with Bryz is that it's pretty doubtful he will be worth anywhere near his cap hit in 5-7 seasons (Unless he's an outlier...how many 35+ goalies are worth 5 mil?), he won't have a lot of incentive to retire since he'll still have a pretty good paycheck, and we won't be able to send him down or trade him unless he allows it. I sure hope he's freaking brilliant for at least the next 3-4 seasons, and ideally for the next 9.

If the organization decided to give Bryz the contract they did because Bob cracked under pressure during his rookie year/1st year in North America, that's an extremely short-sighted and foolish decision. Players develop, physically AND mentally. Bob was praised for his mental fortitude throughout the season, and it's only going to improve as he matures.
