For a team like Philly, it wouldn't surprise me, they have $$ and are highly unpredictable. Bryz had a bad yr last season, is having a worse yr in the KHL, and Holmgren has made his feelings known about his goaltending. Bob Mckenzie has also reiterated that the Flyers would be ecstatic if Bryz stayed in Russia. This could be Holmgrens only opportunity to get rid of his contract.
NYI, I don't think they'd have the $$ to buy out $40M of his DiPietros contract. But you never know.
