I mean the return was decent on the trade, but why not keep him as a solid backup, and might get a better return later on if there is no use for him.

Did he maybe ask for a trade behind the scene? Maybe he felt like he could be a starter somewhere else?
Bryz was top 10 in wins, top 20 in GAA and 30th in SV%. But when you look at his stats by month it shows he got much better as the year went on. GAA of 2.67, 2.28 and 1.43 in Jan, Feb and March...including player of the month.

Bob was to make 1.75 mill as a backup. For a cap team, that is a lot.

Homer did say that Bob deserved the chance to be a #1 somewhere so he traded him. I don't think it was a request by Bob.

I think it was more that the Flyers signed Bryz to speed up a cup chance before Pronger got too old. But of course, it was backfired with his injury.
