Again, this is only relevant if Vokoun opts to not pursue a comeback from his second blood clot operation.
If he does not, someone explain to me why getting Bryzgalov as a free agent is not preferable to Jeff Zatkoff, our AHL goalie. Or any other current UFA goalie.
Bear in the woods and crazy Russian raaah raaaah raaaaaah aside. Fact is that Bryzgalov was a very good backup in Anaheim and an ace goalie in Phoenix. That he sucked in Philly a lot of the time is indisputable, but so did Vezina Bob in Bryz first year and the year after Philly's D was the worst it has been for a looong time. Doesn't justify Bryz performances, but I'd opt for him over Jeff Zatkoff any day of the week, and would take bets that he'd outperform Fleury as well.
Perhaps other team's fans feel their teams are better off. Fair enough, but again - OUR alternative is Fleury/Zatkoff.
