He just seems to care so much about the game, about making himself a better goalie and about winning a championship. I feel bad for him, I feel like he got pulled prematurely last year (as a rookie) and they then gave him no chance signing Bryzgalov to a massive deal.
It has to be tough for Bob, feeling like you played pretty well last year as a rookie, showing the work ethic and the drive to be one of the best, doing/saying all the right things only to have your owner / GM basically tell you they do not believe in you.
Best of luck to Bobs wherever he ends up (hopefully he stays in Philly); he deserves to be a starter wherever he goes.
I agree with you. We rushed the guy to the NHL needlessly and should have just ran the season with him.
Then we throw buckets of $$ and years at someone else. He will likely be gone...
Can he just bolt to Russia now? As an RFA? Didn't radulov do something like this?
