As for Bob, I watched a good amount of his play in Columbus. He would have been just fine here. Columbus spent a lot of time getting trapped in their own end. They gave up hard cross crease passes, they gave up odd man rushes. Bob stopped them far more often than Bryz did. When his team made a mistake Bob was there to fix it. When the Flyers made a mistake Bryz was there to let it in the net. He wasn't a product of a system, he was often carrying his team.
I must admit that I was dismayed when they decided to trade Bob.
I wanted them to give Bob one more year to prove himself.
Bryzgalov did not look too good either that season.
I thought why are we keeping him (Bryz) when he was much higher
paid and played no better than Bob?
The only reason I could fathom was that no one was interested in
Bryz's contract, so we were stuck with him.
