Bryzgalov Regret Leaving Phoenix?

Apparently he's having a hard time dealing with Flyers fans and the media attention.

After walking away from the Coyotes and teeing off on my beloved home town Winnipeg, I don't feel any sympathy for Bryz, especially when you consider how stinking rich he is.

I am not sure if he regrets it, but I sure don't. We have a much better goalie now, and if Bryz would have stayed, I'm sure we would be staring at a 3rd straight 1st round loss and possible relocation of the franchise.

Yeah, how dare people criticize a $6M goalie for making mistakes? I don't think he has idea how much his comments are going to fan the flames in Philly.

In real dollars, he made $ 10M this season + $5M in signing bonuses. Yes, you're reading this correctly: $15M of actual cash for 8 months of work. Has there been a similar payday in the league, ever??

He doesn't wish that on an enemy? Stop feeling sorry for yourself Ilya. At least just shut the F up.

Mike Smith earned two million bucks.

I love the Don. Love him.

Happy hes stinking it up in philly and not here! Had he not been so greedy, I'm sure don would've signed him. And we would've been out in the first round again!

He probably would've got five and a half million per year with us, and NONE of the blame for our continued mediocrity.

along the same lines I wonder if the rook is questioning the advice he listened to in cutting ties from a franchise that simply doesn't have enough talent for him to excell..
Not only did he torpedo his first full year's development he also wrapped himself up in a jacket that will follow him his whole career as a whining back stabbing twit... not bad for his first full season.

we got lucky.

The Coyotes would not be in the Conference finals, and possible not even the Pacific Champs if Bryz was their goalie. I truly believe that on both accounts.

I know timing comes into play and Mike Smythe is who he is today because what has transpired over the past 3 seasons. I can't help but wonder how things might have been with this Mike Smythe between the nets the past two years against the *** *****. I am fairly confident that we would have gotten past them in 7 games two years ago and maybe been more competitive last year.

Signing Mike Smythe was a genius move by Tip and Maloney. I'm not saying that he's going to be a HOF goalie from now on out or anything, but he was a cheaper upgrade than what we had.

I think that's what he's getting at (Conn Smythe), anyways.

I understand why some people don't want to live where it's 115 in the summer. I don't understand why some people don't understand why people don't want to live where it's -50 in the winter.

I am not from Winnipeg but I believe the issue was Bryz talking about the lack of parks and nothing to do. While the winters are cold they are actually nowhere near 50 below zero. Winnipeg winters are actually a lot like AZ summers, most days you just go from car to building, just for different reasons. And Winnipeg has planty of parks and things to do. I would not be interested in living there but for someone to say things like Bryz did is wrong but if we learned anything this season from Bryz it's that what comes out of his mouth should always be filtered.

The $5m signing bonus is included in the $10m total NHL salary, so he only made $10m this season.

Still probably not living on ramen noodles though.

The signing bonus is not included in this year's $10 million salary so he did in fact receive $15 million this year.

It is included. Look at Brad Richards and Christian Ehrhoff signing bonuses on capgeek for similar big signing bonuses.

If you're still not sure add up the NHL salaries on Bryz' contract and divide by the # of years, it will match his cap hit. Another indicator: the maximum compensation a player can receive in a year is 20% of the salary cap. $15m would be more than 20% of the $64.3m cap.

To add to that... Bryz also has a home in Russia. He's also a very devoted family man... and the notion of having the raise two small children in the cold year round probably didn't sound all that appealing.

Russia isn't exactly a frozen wasteland in the summer (in the populated areas at least).

I understand your point though. Being used to warm climates myself though, even Philadelphia seems cold to someone like me.

Earlier this week at game five, I was going on about Mike "the Conn Smythe" with my friend and then started calling him Smythe for fun for the next little while. I wasn't sure whether I should be amused or horrified when the guy next to us turned to his significant other and says very seriously, "You know that Mike Smythe is one of the better goalies in the league" That's when I knew the bandwagoners were coming out to the games.

I hope you just forgot to put the after your statement, otherwise you are very misinformed.

It's basic math....

Bryz + Sean Burke = $51 million goalie

Bryz - Sean Burke = AHL

Bryz can cry all he wants but he made his choice and his only hope now is that the next CBA doesn't have an amnesty clause in it, otherwise he is done in Philly and in the NHL for that matter.
