And not just that, but win it in large part because of the guy they signed to replace him? Man, would anything sting more than that? Basically, the Coyotes -- who felt Bryz quit on them against Detroit last year in the playoffs -- told him he wasn't as good as he thought he was, then essentially proved it to him by getting Mike Smith (who should be right up there with Lundqvist and Quick for the Vezina), having the best season in franchise history, and advancing to the conference finals.

Talk about the giving someone the ultimate giant middle finger.
I hadn't thought of it from that angle, but now that you say that, it might be a great thing for Bryz to absorb and come back next season with a vengeance.

However in an interview today Bryz says this:

Question: Is it tough that your former club Phoenix could win the Stanley Cup?

Bryz: "God willing! I have a lot of good friends over there. Excellent coaches, general manager. Coyotes went through a lot of thorns. If they become champions, I am all for it. Now I am rooting for them."

So, maybe not?
