Bryz was hardly letting through "impossible saves" all last season. For a solid 75% of the year he was particularly Leighton-esque. You can't pay a goalie $5.67m/year to not move well laterally, be constantly out of position, not cut down shooting angles, and not challenge shooters.

I can create a more successful team next offseason by signing Edler to replace Timonen, buying out Bryz, throwing L8on in net, and throwing Bryz's money at Streit or Regehr. Whitney and Hainsey are also UFAs this offseason potentially.

Coburn - Streit
Edler - Schenn
Meszaros - Grossmann

Backstrom, Howard, Smith.

If I'm okay with Leighton, literally anyone will be an long as they don't cost $5 ****ing million a year to suck.

Bryz played like ****. He has half a year to prove he isn't a completely **** goaltender. Hell, he already ****ed up the first half of this season over in Russia.

There's more of a guarantee if we spend money on a defense to cover up for Leighton than allowing Bryz to play at Leighton level for 3/4th of the year.
