Either way, we won't get anywhere unless Bryzgalov plays better.
We don't have Pronger and a younger Timonen to make Leighton look like a god anymore.
When Bryzgalov starts earning that contract, then all of these issues will go away.
We don't have a bad defense. Maybe it's not perfect for Laviolette's system, but Timonen, Coburn, Meszaros, Grossmann, and LSchenn have all proven they can play great hockey at this level.
Now we just see who shows up. The defense or Bryz...or best case scenario -- both.
Based on training camp so far, I'm doubting that Bryz shows up, and it'd be terrible to throw away a great coach because the organization rushed into a commitment with a flake goaltender.
