Bryzgalov has had a few strong games since the Winter Classic. I'll admit that he's getting better.

However, we saw with our own eyes how terrible he's been.

If it looks like a Leighton, is out of position like a Leighton, gives up horrible rebounds like a Leighton, does not hug the post like a Leighton, and gets beat on routine saves like a Leighton...it must be a Leighton.

It's up to Bryzgalov to continue to get better. We all know he's a better goalie than that. Blaming the defense is just a cop out. We're one of the best in terms of giving up limited shots per game.
We disagree on a lot, but when Chris is right, he's right. Full cosign from me on that whole post.
