Yeah I think that was how most people felt. Bob had an ugly playoffs the previous year. Bryz was a proven goalie. The next year Bob looked downright terrible. The deal had to be done.

Hindsight is 20/20. When Bryz signed the contract, there were differing opinions about how good he was. Some thought he Vezina caliber, others thought top half or average. Very few (if any) predicted what we have seen thus far. I think your post pretty much sums it up. We all figured Bryz would suffice for a good part of his contract, and when he declined we would be scrambling. It has not gone as planned, unfortunately.
