His contract sucked but he is a really good goalie who had a slightly above average run with the team he played for in philly. the team being the mess that it was. we needed him to win or be in contention for a vezina every year to justify that contract which was imo impossible on this team. And don't give me bob just needed five more seconds to develop. We have a season coming up that will explain a lot about whether this offensive system executed properly is capable of overcoming any defensive compromises that might be made to implement it. We'll also learn a lot more about Mason. I obviously agree with bernie that it wasn't goaltending that did us in these last two years. i can understand how'd you think that tho staring at that save percentage the way you do.
Wait, you really think Bryzgalov was above average with Philly? Or am I misreading you?


You don't need to look at save percentage to realize Bryzgalov was terrible here. All you had to do was watch him, and compare his performance to the goalie across the ice. More often than not the guy across the ice was clearly better.
