I'm more angry at Snider for this move. The entire Bryzgalov contract/ordeal has his fingerprints all over it. In reality, we probably sign Bryzgalov anyway because we apparently were bidding against ourselves considering what other goalies went for in that market, but it's for a smaller price, and less term. I was for giving Bobrovsky a chance after he was jerked around in the playoffs, but circumstances were different and it's hard to blame them. Our defense was led by Chris Pronger and Kimmo Timonen, who were both #1 defensemen, and an emerging superstar in Claude Giroux. We were elite goaltending away from being serious cup contenders, and that window was closing fast with Pronger and Timonen's age. It didn't look like Bob could be that guy within the window, so they made a move. It didn't work.
