This all assumes he will be a backup his entire stint. If Bryz has a big setback physically, mentally or whatever then we have an AHL backup as a stopgap when there are some good NHL proven/consistent backups. Now if the Flyers land one of Parise or Suter then I will have to accept it a little more but still think his signing was more an inconvenience/afterthought for Holmgren and it could come back to haunt him once again.
Downplaying the significance of getting a legit NHL backup for Bryz is short-sighted IMO. I think though somewhere during the season they do secure a better backup and Leighton is sent back to where he belongs..the AHL!
