These are Bryz's career games played and S%:
2005-06 Anaheim Mighty Ducks 31 0.910
2006-07 Anaheim Ducks 27 0.907
2007-08 Anaheim Ducks 9 0.909
2007-08 Phoenix Coyotes 55 0.921
2008-09 Phoenix Coyotes 65 0.906
2009-10 Phoenix Coyotes 69 0.920
2010-11 Phoenix Coyotes 68 0.921
2011-12 Philadelphia Flyers 59 0.909
3 out of 4 years in Phoenix with their defensive system he was around .92 whereas otherwise he is around .91.
For perspective, assuming the same 1554 shots on Bryz, that is 16 (rounded) less goals against and would have left the team ranked 11th in goals against vs 20th.
I do not know how many fewer goals the team would have in a defensive system, but it does seem questionable to play differently to make an otherwise average goalie into a good goalie, all the while not necessarily leading to more wins at all and possibly fewer.
Bryz was 26th in KHL goalies S% this year. I understand why people are worried about him.
