Bob is 14th in the league in SV% in players with +10 games played.
19th in GAA.
Bryz is 49th in the league in SV% in players with +10 games played.
Only Neuvirth, Mason, Roloson, Brodeur and Auld are in that bracket with more tham ten games played.
He is 46th in GAA.
The netminders in Bryz's price range, have the following stats.
Lundquist: $6875000 .937%, 1.89 GAA
Ward: $6300000. .901%, 3.12 GAA
Miller: $6250000. 903%, 2.97 GAA
Backstrom: $6000000. .923%, 2.39 GAA
Kiprusoff: $5833333. .917%, 2.42 GAA
Luongo: $5333333. .918%, 2.36 GAA
Brodeur: $5200000. .891%, 2.98 GAA
Thomas: $5000000. .939%, 1.95 GAA
Fleury: $5000000. .914%, 2.25 GAA
Bryz has a $5666667 cap hit. His numbers are worse than everyone but Brodeurs.
I will give him time, he has proven that he is a top 10 keeper in this league. (more than 25 GP.)
2010: 11th with .921 SV%,16th with 2.48 GAA
2009: 9th with .920 SV%, 6th with 2.29 GAA
2008: he was pretty bad! .906 SV%
2007: 9th with .920 SV%, 16th with 2.44 GAA
But at the moment he is not earning his contract. Who knows if he will, but at the moment he obviously is not.
In my mind, comparatively speaking, he has to put up approximately .915 SV% and sub 2.50 GAA to be worth the contract. As that is what we are paying him to do.
Hopefully he will finish the season with about .905 SV% (which would mean the second half he averages about .920 SV%)
I would be happy if he did that for his first year, then puts up .910-920% for the rest of his contract!
