Most recent Bryzgalov's interview to Sovetskiy Sport

Ecerpts from the Interview with Iliya Bryzgalov to Sovetskiy Sports

This exclusive interview was taken at Bryzgalov’s hockey camp in Russia.


Iliya Bryzgalov: “ Bobrovsky and I will have to work together to win the Stanley Cup”

Q: Why do so many young players leave for the NHL?
A: All the youngsters know that the NHL is the strongest league in the world. And most of them would like to play there. When a chance presents itself they try to grab it. I can only respect that.

Q: Is Varlamov’s situation similar?
A: Yes, you can use that as example. I can’t speak for Semen. I do not know the whole story that he had in Washington and I do not know what he was offered by SKA. But I think, he made a right choice for himself.

Q: Semen is now in the situation that you were in Anaheim when you were 23 years old and played with Giguere. Is he a strong competition?
A: Not weaker than others. I would give Varlamov an advice that I give my campers- believe in yourself and work hard. The game will show who the best is.

Q: There was a Russian goalie team in Edmonton in the 90’s- Khabibulin and Shtalenkov. There is a second time in history of the NHL with 2 Russian keepers on 1 team.
A: I am thrilled that Sergey Bobrovsky will be my partner. I have not played on the same team with Russians for a while. I played with Lisin in Phoenix a few years ago, but that’s it. I have no problem working with Americans. I keep good relationship with everyone. But I really would like to meet Bobrovsky. Can’t wait for a face to face meeting. We will have to work together to win the Stanley Cup.


Q: You have signed a 9 year $51 million contract with Philadelphia, and you became the highest paid player for the 2011/12 season with the $10 million salary. But you were surpassed by Brad Richards.
A: I have not even thought about that.

Q: Did that flatter you?
A: I did not pay any attention.

Q: Were you surprised by the Flyers rebuilding efforts? You came, and Richards and Carter were traded almost immediately.
A: Let me try to explain. It’s a part of our business. We have accepted the rules of the game. Anyone can be traded at any moment. If Flyers management made that decision, means that was necessary.

Q: …And then Jagr was signed.
A: And I am glad about it. Great master (verbatim), who will definitely help us. By the way, we know each other. I came to Omsk after the lockout, even signed a contract with “Avangard”. We worked in the training camp together for a couple of months.

Q: One can say that you have a locker room of “Cicero’s” in Philadelphia.
A: Why is that?

Q: Because 3 bright speakers are there- you, Jagr and Pronger.
A: We not in the ancient Rome, however- laughs Iliya. I do not think there will be a lot of chat in the locker room. We have one common goal- to win a Stanley Cup and we have nothing to split.

Q: I meant to say that the journalists are very excited. They will have great interviews after every game.
A: If you think that way- I will try not to disappoint you.

Q: Is it important for you to know what you are going to do in 2020?
A: Stability is very important. I know that I have a long term contract with Flyers and I have to work it- game after game, year after yer.

Q: you have asked for an advice on what to paint on your mask. Have you decided?
A: There were great ideas on twitter. But I think that I will do something that my children are going to love. Either they will paint something, or they will give me the idea. Why? I love my children very much. They have bright, clear thoughts. I will look at my mask in the locker room and recall them. And I feel warmer inside.

P.S.
For the last few seasons and during the Olympics Bryzgalov has played in a mask painted with children’s drawings. “That was painted by my daughter. On one side- mom, dad, Valeria herself and my son Vladislav. And also a small dog. On the other side- my daughter is riding a pony.

Thanks for the translation! I can't wait to see his new mask... maybe he could incorporate some of the art from Maddox's website (http://www.thebestpageintheuniverse.net/c.cgi?u=irule)

I wouldn't want to speak for Semen, either.

I have a feeling Bryz's mask is going to be awesome.

It's for the hockey camp for kids in Russia that he runs every summer.

I'm not sure a crayola crayon designed mask will hold up....stick figures of daddy and I luv dad sounds pretty trend setting though...

No no it sounds cool..I like his disposition. It will also be entertaining with him, Pronger and Jagr no doubt. Can't wait for the Christmas specials and other Coatsey corner events...

Well, we will, hopefully, have full "front and center" of these 3 during HBO 24/7.

Does anyone know if we happen to play LA or Columbus during the timeframe they will be filming 24/7? That would be some good TV.

If reports of Flyers signing Jason Bacashihua are to be believed then this "thrill" will be shortlived. Doubtful Bob sticks around if this is the case.

I think this is the better idea. Why get some weird idea from a stranger when you can get your kids to do something more meaningful? Good call Bryz.

CSKA, as always thanks for the translation.

Bacashihua is certainly not good enough to force Bob out.

I'd agree with that, but if Homer isn't done making moves (and who really knows) and he needs some cash to move, Bob could very well be the guy to go.

That guy shouldn't even be allowed on an NHL roster.

They could go with Leighton as the back up though... scary ****, I know, but this organization has done some weird things the last few years.

I think we will have Bobrovsky as our back up, unless a trade opens up that is too good to say no to in which he is included.

I'd rather eat nuclear waste than see that happen. That would be a step backward in the goal position and that goes against the grain of this offseason, so I'm ready to bet that it's extremely unlikely.

Thanks for translating. He's hilarious! I wonder if he'll be like that with Philly's media.
