The All-Purpose Bryz/Goaltending Thread #7

Carry On.

What most of you don't realize yet, is that Gagne was acquired to back up Bryz.

I could see Gagne save his ass a few times this season . Honestly though, I think Boosh should start the next game. Give Bryz a couple days off at least.

I posted it in the other thread and will say it again

I don't see Nashville fans making this tired excuse with Rinne. He has played one minute less than Bryz.

Oh and he has been absolutely stellar as well.

Can he play backup goalie?

I wouldn't call it 9 straight bad games, but he's been pretty inconsistent since Feb 9th.

Does this mean that statistics and Yahoo Sports are part of "Negadelphia?"

Does recognizing that the salary cap is kinda important make one a citizen of "Negadelphia" as well?

Save percentage first 10 games: .9225
Save percentage last 9 games: .86977

Or if you prefer

Save percentage first 11 games: .92114
Save percentage last 8 games: .86264

Overall save percentage: .89980

Anyway you want to slice it, he's been bad for the better part of 2 weeks and his overall numbers are not cutting it.

Flyers MVP for the first couple weeks. Not so much since then, especially with Giroux and Voracek stepping up once more.

He started out amazing. Has been pretty bad the last two weeks minus a few games. He very well may be tired, but the fact is he hasn't played well

he has started 2 fewer games than Bryz and has 1 fewer win than Bryz.
Rinne started the year 4-6. his last 3 games he is 2-3.

better #s than Bryz, for sure. my guess:
NASH doesn't play him back to back.
NASH is better overall defensively as a team.

Rinne has a GAA of 1.90 and SV% of .926

We clearly are just making excuses for the guy. We knew coming into this year he would have to play a lot. He should have been mentally and physically prepared for this.

Weber has played pretty poorly on the offensive side, but has been his usual on defense. Besides that, they have Josi, Blum, Gill, Klein, Hannan, and Ellis back on defense. Three of those are very young. Flyers group is better overall instead of Weber.

The Preds have had 4 back-to-backs and Rinne has started 18 of 20 games this year, so he definitely plays both end of back-to-back situations.

so you just proved Rinne is better than Bryz with 1 fewer win & better #s.

which changes nothing: Bryz is the Flyers best player, hands down, this year.

some here say hes not doing well. what does that say about the rest of the team if a guy who "isn't playing well" is clearly the team MVP thus far.

exactly: look elsewhere when assigning blame this year.
[regardless of my criticism of Bryz the last few games]

We aren't proving Rinne is the better player, we already knew this. We are proving some of us will make enough excuses to give Bryz a pass. Being tired should not be one of them.

How does a team have an MVP when they suck?

Where have I said anything about Bryz not playing well this year? Don't lump me in with everyone else you believe is against you.

There's no way he is "hands down" their best player. Voracek has certainly lapped him. Read had been damned good before getting hurt as well. Giroux is surging back. Timonen is on pace for 30 points in a 48 game season, which is a pace for 50 in a full season, while also playing decent defense against tough competition.

Can you explain, logically, why Bryzgalov should be considered the team MVP over Voracek, who has 24 points in 21 games and is tied for 6th in the league? Meanwhile, Bryzgalov is ranked 46th in the league for save percentage. You harp on his wins, but he's also 2nd for most losses. If for some reason you want to use win/loss as a relevant stat (which is a bad idea since that's a team stat, mostly), he's at 9-9-1, which isn't anything to write home about.

So, what is your reasoning for Bryz being better than Voracek?

Has Holmgren contacted you yet? You play better defense than 90% of the guys on our roster

Your entire post is all about your laughable opinions, there's nothing to refute

If you seriously think that a guy w/ a sub .900 save % is the Flyers MVP this year, then that's your opinion. I disagree. The Flyers MVP is clearly Voracek. And Giroux, Read, Timonen, and others are next in line before Bryzgalov.

Guy had a few hot weeks to start the season followed by an aBRYZmal few weeks and you want to forgot about the last couple and call the guy MVP. You're entitled, I guess, but when your entire post amounts to nothing but opinions, please don't tell me I "cannot refute anything in your post". The overall product that Bryz has put out there this year leaves a lot to be desired.

His numbers are sinking, not because he's let in a bad goal or two over the last couple of weeks, its because the flyers kinda blow. but i forgot everything is the goalies fault. i'm assuming you've been watching this team tho. oh and getting gagne as sentimental as everyone wants to be about it is a joke. he's just a waste of cap space and another player soon to be on injured reserve. Who should the flyers replace bryz with tho? who could we get that would be able to withstand the horrendousness of the play in front of them?
