For a while the only reliable defense that could have totally bailed out Bryz would have been one that allowed 0 shots on net; that's not reasonable.

I'm willing to chalk it up to just one bad year, with a hilariously long adjustment period; I think most fans are. But if he plays in space cadet mode and costs the team games for any extended period next season the collective fan rage will wither him.
yeah and if you read in between the lines with Holmgren's after season comments I dont think Holmgren was impressed. he wasnt good at all last season outside of that stretch in March where he played out of his mind and against NJ in round 2.
I am not expecting him to put up .950 all year like he did in March. But if we go into another season where we need to score 4 goals to win every night then its going to be a long season.
