id give last chance to bryz to show up, if he ****s up, id go all the way with bob, stats dont lie and they start to be un-overlookable if thats even word
Player GP GS W L OT SA GA GAA Sv Sv% SO TOI
Bryzgalov 29 28 16 9 3 773 84 3.07 689 .891 1 1,639:37
Bobrovsky 16 13 9 3 1 418 34 2.45 384 .919 0 833:17
Bryz = 16-12, 3.07, .891
Bob = 9-4, 2.45, .919
I'm afraid if Bob gets more starts his stats will start to look like Bryz's, and then your in big trouble. This sounds like the Redskins of this year (replacing the crappy grossman for beck with a winning record, had Beck fail and then went back to grossman with the season lost) or the capitals goalie problems a few years ago. I think the best thing to do is just weather the storm for a few more weeks, they are still in a great position in the east sitting at #4 and threatening for the #1 spot. I hear you guys complaining about how bad the defense is, and when i watch it seems like Bryz get's 1-2 VERY unlikely goals every single game that i don't see how you can blame it on him.. crazy deflections and bounces can rarely be stopped. You can argue that he could be in better position, but come on.. the defense is horrible. You guys are probably stuck with Bryz, he needs to work here. Why would anyone trade for him?!?!? You can't sign a goalie to an outrageous contract and have him sitting on the bench.

You are right, and you are wrong.
He's been bad no doubt, I wouldnt say the Flyers are "stuck" with him though. They want him here, thats why he's got a long deal. Everyone that thinks his first 30 games in a Flyers jersey will amount to his career here is ignorant and near sighted.
And yes, yes they can have him sitting on the bench. It goes to show that on this team it doesnt matter how much you make, if you arent playing well, you wont play. Period. Bryz hasnt played better then Bob, so why exactly is he supposed to be entitled to play? Because he makes 4 Million more?
