Bob: 1 bad goal vs NYR 5-2 loss
Bob: 1 bad goal vs DET 4-3 loss
Bryz: 1 bad goal vs BUF 7-2 win

No "adjustment period" is going to cause a goalie to give up that kind of goal as often as Bryz has this year. It's one thing to have to learn how the team works in front of you, how to communicate with and work with your defense...but letting in goals like that second goal are simply not explained by "adjusting." Unless goalies forget everything they know about goaltending when they switch teams and have to learn it all over again from the basics. There's also no excuse for him to still need to be "adjusting" at game 57 of the season.

Down in the basement, I've got a Craftsman lathe. Show it to the children when they misbehave.
