IMO - Bryz is a very good goalie who is better than most here believe. Bryz is NOT as good as most WANTED HIM TO BE! He is not worth 50 million. BUT, he might just be good enough. I am firmly sticking behind him this year as this is YEAR ONE of 9, so WHY NOT! If he gets hot, as he has done MANY TIMES throughout his career, then we have a team to win it all.

He isn't unproven like Leighton. He isn't young like Bob was last year. He is an established goalie who was runner up for the Vezina 2 years ago. He isn't a bum. He isn't terrible. He is a star goalie on a new team in a new system and he has been good for months. Lets see if he continues the stats of January and February. Especially with the upgraded D.
Thank you. Some much needed perspective. And, in reality, the team has to figure out a way to get him back to his game - it's not like we can waive him to the Phantoms...
