I am a lifetime Flyers fan. I began following them since their second year of existence, so I've seen every goalie they've ever had. Parent, Favell, Gamble, Taylor, Stephenson, Peeters etc.
I have not had confidence in a Flyers goalie since the Hextall era. I was in favour of acquiring Ilya Bryzgalov, and I've given him support during the time he's been here, however I am getting tired of his inconsistency.
Bryz doesn't inspire confidence, he makes me as a fan nervous as hell in every game. There isn't a time where I think, the Flyers have this game/ Bryz is a rock out there, and there's no way the other team will beat him!
Those thoughts never happen when it comes to this guy.
I remember a former team mate of Bernie Parent saying that he asked Bernie. " how many goals do we need to get to beat this team?" Bernie responded, "one,maybe two".
Bryzgalov was given a three point cushion against the Penguins last week in the first period, and managed to blow it! Bernie, Pelle, Hexy....wouldn't blow a lead like that.
Bryzgalov makes his fans nervous, so I'm sure his teammates are equally nervous.
It's time for a better back up goalie who could actually be a starting goalie.
It's time for Holmgren to get off his arse and help this team by acquiring a useable back up!
