The Bryz contract is what it is, and if he doesn't work out his contract will be bought out. So, that's not really a problem. Also, the Carter/Richards trades weren't based on the creating ability to sign Bryz.
Didn't say he was the single reason they won, he was a reason. Leadership can do wonderful things. A guy like Richards doesn't only put up points and plays defense. He helps give a team an identity. I was just stating recent bad moves didn't make any correlation to them. I think philly was a hell of a team a few years back, that could've kept pushing for a cup for multiple years. Could have gotten stronger goaltending some other way.
