Most people consider Niemi mediocre but Bryz isn't any better.
Niemi career: .916, Niemi playoffs: .904,
Bryz career: .915, Bryz playoffs: .908
What makes Bryz so great that makes him deserving of a franchise contract? Niemi was only signed to a 4 year deal worth $3.8M a year and he has actually won a Cup.
If there is am amnesty clause I dump Bryz and sign someone to be a cheap stop gap. We have Bob and Hovinen in the system. Next year's free agent class will be better anyway.
Ah yes, cheap stop gap. Is that not what we have been playing with up until this year? I mean, we are fans not owners or GMs. Could it be possible that Homer and Snider know a little better what a quality goalie is than some of the posters on here?
The world is not black and white. It's not oh well the goalie is to fault, let's dump him.
We obv have been trying to go on a serious cup run and in the process we disassembled some of our peices, and brought in a ton of new players.
We overhauled our goaltending, we have a good goalie. We need to do some tweaking to our D, let the offense mature a bit and I think we will be okay.
Bryz isn't the sole reason we are no longer in the playoffs. Anyone who thinks so has lost their mind. You can't put a bandaid over a bullet wound.
In other words, our half-healthy D and inability to match systems is why we are at home.
I love how people make the argument that Bryz was good in Phoenix bc of the system. If that is the case, wouldn't that mean our system is failing? Not our goalie?
