Bryz got paid big bucks for numbers he put up in Phoenix, in probably the tightest defensive system in the league. Shocker he comes to an offensive team, doesn't put up similar Vezina numbers, and people call for his head without looking for a reason.

*And don't say Lundqvist, Rinne, Quick, Luongo, Miller, etc. Those first three are probably the 3 best goalies in hockey. On the FA market, they'd probably get $7-8m. They're also currently playing behind impeccable defensive systems for defensive coaches. Are they better than Bryz? Sure. Would they cost more for Bryz if available? Yup. Will fans be equally as disappointed and complain that they're aren't worth their contract value? I'd be pretty damn sure of it.
So, no goalie except all of those goalies.

Down in the basement, I've got a Craftsman lathe. Show it to the children when they misbehave.
