There are some things in this post that are true but others, not so much. Last night's game was an example of what it takes by the team to cover for Bryz. Everyone back in around the net to help him. The result; sporadic offense. Bryz has no glove hand to speak of. His best saves are when he puts his body onto a shot which leads to too much loose change in the crease. That pulls the Flyers defensemen back into the nets even more to clear out the rebounds. His lateral movement is barely adequate. If he is to stay as the goaltender, the entire organization has to be all in on playing like it did last night and maybe willing 2-1 or 3-2 games. If he allows three or more goals, the Flyers lose. IMO that is not the blueprint to winning hockey.
