People continue to deny the system, it's baffling. Tippett's system made Bryz great, almost a Vezina winner. It's doing the same to Mike Smith too, who couldn't win the job on a team w/o a goalie. Without that, Bryz is just inconsistent...good when he's on, very bad when he's not.
I think Bryz did show many athletic flashes. I really don't think it is time to brand him as being slow or slothful or lazy. We'll know more next year, I reckon.

Cannot argue with the rest of what you said.
