Snider Talks about Bryzgalov; Paul Holmgren “has to focus on the defense first.”

Quote:
We had tremendous success with all the young players and I’m very excited about the future of our team.”

As for offseason moves, Snider said “you can’t replace a Pronger, but maybe you can make some moves that help offset the loss of Pronger.” He said he believed GM Paul Holmgren “has to focus on the defense first.”
Carchidi said that he was hinting at Suter

Ed Snider also talked about Bryzgalov and the fans.

Quote:
Asked to evaluate Bryzgalov’s season, Snider called it a “mixed bag. It went from shaky at times to spectacular at tikes. The Bryz we saw in March– the goalie was named the league’s player of the month – “I hope will be the Bryz that we see consistently in the future. I think he wasn’t prepared for Philadelphia fans and the microscope that he’s under. I think we’re tougher on goalies maybe than any other team in the league. I think our fans are frustrated, and rightfully so, for the goaltending carousel that we’ve had through the years. It’s the problem of management, not of Bryzgalov. We blew it and we created the situation (in the past). I watch the playoffs and regular season games, and ALL goalies let in bad goals, but when a goalie in Philadelphia lets in a bad goal, it’s like a disaster.

“Look at the playoffs two years ago when we played New Jersey. (Marty) Brodeur looked like he was through. And we beat New Jersey in five games, and even the games we played against New Jersey this year, Brodeur looked shaky at times, but he was good enough to win. In Philly, if that would happen, they would be booing our goalie even if we were ahead. And it’s tough. I would hope they will be more patient with the goalie, but like I said, the frustration isn’t the cause of their fault; it’s our fault for what we’ve created. Then Bryzgalov stepped into that. I don’t think he was prepared for it, and he’s a very sensitive kid. Even though he jokes around, he’s extremely sensitive and it affected him. But you can see how he can play. He was voted the best player in the league in March, and it’s a great accomplishment.”

Couldn't have said it better about the reactions to Bryz.

It's not the fans' fault he played like garbage for 2-3 months straight.

Because he began playing badly while the fans were still on board. They turned on him AFTER he continued to disappoint.

True, but our wonderful outpouring of support certainly didn't help him turn it around. Didn't he finally start playing well while they were on a road trip?

When will people learn that booing players don't make them play better? Bryz knew when he sucked, he didn't need us to help him hate his life even more. And him having a fat contract in his pocket isn't going to MAKE HIM play any better. He can't play above himself because of dollar signs, especially when he has other professional athletes trying to earn their own contracts on a nightly basis...something has to give. For much of the season, it was Bryz. Hopefully next year is different.

It's the nature of sports, from hockey to the most random sports worldwide. You wont find fans cheering for a player who plays bad. Just not how it works.

"Snider said he was happy for Richards and Carter, whose Kings open the Stanley Cup Finals on Wednesday in New Jersey, and “I hope they win the Cup."

I'm sure you do- NOT! Must have broke Carchidi's heart to hear you say that.

Nice to read that the owner has a very good handle on the season, is optimistic and realistic and sees what needs to be done.

on the money. Goaltending is a position most fans don't get. It's not like being a winger, you don't need the fans to cheer and give you adrenaline. YOU NEED FOCUS.

all this booing over fluky goals only breeds lack of concentration!

that and we had the most unlucky year with defensive injuries.

when bryz is confident, he's a tough goalie to score on...its that simple. Put your egos aside and root for the guy (to those who wanted vokoun lol)

So should we not cheer as well?

Come on.

He latched everything to Pronger getting hurt and needing to replace him.


It's the other Nashville defenseman who would presumably do that. So, we know what the marching orders are for the off-season.

Cap fans just weren't supportive enough of him. That's my argument and I'm sticking to it.

I wish the fans were more supportive of lil Bryz when he scored a goal on himself in an elimination game on home ice... Poor little fella.

Suter said he'll "entertain" offers from Nashville. I think it's pretty black and white at this point. Suter is either getting the house or making it to market with the latter being the more likely scenario.

With Suter on the way out, Weber is 100% off the table. That's the end of that discussion unless you're throwing Giroux at Nashville.

If we want a big time #1 it's Suter or bust. If Suter comes with Parise, he's not coming to Philadelphia unless JVR's or Briere's contract and possibly another are on the way out.

You're assuming Weber signs long-term if Suter leaves. That's not necessarily true. Weber will make 7.5 million next year on the QO alone, right? What do you do if your Nashville and he won't sign long-term? You can't lost them both in consecutive years for nothing...

I hope it doesn't come to that--for them and for us. I'm a bit worried what Holmgren might send to Nashville if Weber became available. My guess is Voracek / JVR / Schenn + Coburn + multiple firsts.

Unless Suter is the only one they believe they can keep.

You think Snider is thinking off of that.


Weber is a piece of candy and Snider is the 5-year old kid who keeps screaming how much he wants it and only gets it to shut him up
