I've been following the Flyers since 1967. In the past ten years I probably miss 5 games a year. I've watched every goaltender including the elite and legeary Bernie Parent, to rookie sensations Hextall, Lindberg, and Boucher. I've also watched all the other not so good goalies. I think I have a pretty good perspective on what a goalie should play like.
Bryz is not an elite goalie. I don't think he ever was. I still don't understand why the Flyers got him except they felt the pressure to get an elite goaltender because of the past failures.
I think we can chalk this up to a mistake with good intentions by Snider and Holmgren. They should have been more patient with Bob.
There are teams out there with elite goaltenders but they wouild die before parting with them. No one was sorry to see Bryz leave qnd we won't be either.
