Iliya is not capable of protecting the goal alone without teamís help. I have to consider these issues when I evaluate a goalie performance. I liked what I saw.

It must have been hard for him to say the above with a straight face.
He did not have to keep a "straight face". He came here to evaluate Russian NHL players for the Russian National team. He provided his opinion to the Russian news paper. I do not think he was worried too much about Bryz's sensitivity or about Philadelphia Flyers fans' opinion.

He has plenty of goalies to work with if Bryz does not poan out. I also need to add that he was not enthusiastic about Varlamov.
