He has good NHL number due to such a small sample size. He was traded to Boston because they lacked depth at the AHL level last year.

His AHL numbers are okay, but not absolutely ground breaking.

We need a back up with experience and leadership qualities, not a goalie with 8 NHL starts. If Bryz goes down, would you feel confident with him as your starter?
Hes played on pretty bad offensive teams down in Providence which has skewered his stats, but he really does have the potential to being a starter. He is really solid position wise and his butterfly is strong, but he doesn't have an awesome push from side to side which hurts him because hes a smaller goalie. When he develops his push side to side though he really could be a solid goalie and he is older than Rask so he'd prob want to get out of Boston unfortunately
