And on the topic of Stana, does anyone know why he was never given more of a shot in the NHL? He namely posted insane numbers in the AHL in the 2003/04 season (24G, 1.68 GA, .941) for the Pirates.

Also, on the topic of Bryz and perusing the eliteprospects database, the short profile made me chuckle a bit:
He probably figured he can make more money in the SEL then he could in the NHL. Of course the lockout happened after the 03-04 season. Or maybe the Caps were ticked at him for chosing to go overseas instead of playing in the AHL.
