i dont blame the whole Bobrovsky/Bryzgalov fiasco on Holmgren. That is all Snider's fault. The goaltending position had been pretty unstable around here for a long time and Bobrovsky given his age and potential had a chance to change that. But no, we went with the more proven guy and that did not work out at all. Now the Flyers are likely going to continue with the goalie circus for quite awhile longer.
I just don't see the problem with trading a guy for a chance to be as good as a guy for a guy who already is that good.

In all honesty, would you be defending the team if they had stuck with Bob and he fizzled out here, while Bryz went on to get a Vezina nomination elsewhere?
