which changes nothing: Bryz is the Flyers best player, hands down, this year.
you say hes not doing well. what does that say about the rest of the team if a guy who "isn't playing well" is clearly the team MVP thus far.
exactly: look elsewhere when assigning blame this year.
[regardless of my criticism of Bryz the last few games]
There's no way he is "hands down" their best player. Voracek has certainly lapped him. Read had been damned good before getting hurt as well. Giroux is surging back. Timonen is on pace for 30 points in a 48 game season, which is a pace for 50 in a full season, while also playing decent defense against tough competition.
Can you explain, logically, why Bryzgalov should be considered the team MVP over Voracek, who has 24 points in 21 games and is tied for 6th in the league? Meanwhile, Bryzgalov is ranked 46th in the league for save percentage. You harp on his wins, but he's also 2nd for most losses. If for some reason you want to use win/loss as a relevant stat (which is a bad idea since that's a team stat, mostly), he's at 9-9-1, which isn't anything to write home about.
So, what is your reasoning for Bryz being better than Voracek?
Down in the basement, I've got a Craftsman lathe. Show it to the children when they misbehave.
