I don't think it's any coincidence that Bryzgalov was a Vezina calibre goalie under Dave Tippet, just as Mike Smith was/is and just as Turco was. As soon as those players leave Tippet's systems they falter.

Luongo has been a very consistent goaltender for the most part in the regular season - he has been off and on in the playoffs, with a few high profile meltdowns.
Bryz had a pretty awesome March. Also, Bryz was successful in Anaheim when he did play.

Bryz has talent and can play. Philly D doesn't help him much. Luongo is absolutely superior, but I have zero interest in acquiring him now.
