That was what I was thinking when I read the comments about Bryzgalov. A few years ago teams were willing to give huge contracts to some goaltenders, now that teams stopped doing it, the Flyers start. They're behind the times in pretty much any idea or "new thing" that comes forward.
Here is another one Mirtle wrote, outlines a few teams who use it:
No shock the Penguins are one of the teams who use it, given that on paper they had a team that had no business making the playoffs. A little more surprised that the Flames are one of the teams who do though.
Someone correct me if I'm wrong, aside from the misleading movie trailers that always are shown, the movie Moneyball is supposed to be more about how the A's changed baseball, not that they became a baseball dynasty and made Scott Hatteberg a superstar.
