No, but I bet he allows fewer goals. What with him being a better goalie at the moment.

It's easy to joke but bobs probably happy as anything to be off this team and on one that has a good chance of playoffs.

Why not...not like Berube is going to wreck our chances at a lottery pick either

You forget, according to them Bobs playing behind one of the best teams in the league while Bryz is on the worse.

I love how strongly some people around here defend Bryz. What a horrendous contract that will be, lets hope Snider is willing to buy him out.

Doubt it. The fact that Lavy has made it this far without getting canned means he'll probably be here till the end of the year.

I could be wrong though...

Because they're not suited for a system like New York uses.

Do you think this team has some sort of secret reserve of defensive skill they just aren't using?

Our bottom pairing is weak. I know that. But you gotta mask your problems.

Season was over when we couldnt get Weber

Imagine if we had a guy like Shea back there. Sure Bryz would still suck, but our D would be so much better

I'm basing that on the number of times I've seen him get shelled for 5-10 minutes without giving up a goal.

Van has outshot Columbus 12-2 with Bob in net so far tonight and he hasn't given up a goal.

3.5 mill cap space to improve all other brutal aspects. Bryz is paid to bail out team with **** team defence. If he can't, u go cheaper on goal and improve team defence.

Better defence. 12 dump ins by Canucks most likely.

Khabby had more saves in the 2 nd than Bryz did. Oilers are rocks on D tho.

We wouldn't have Voracek, Schenn, Couturier, and our 1st this year. I really don't see the difference.

Love him or hate him, I think we can all agree that Bryz is insanely overpaid

We can talk about Bryz but just getting rid of Bryz doesn't solve the problem. Our defense is brutal. The only defenseman with an ounce of hockey sense is Kimmo. That's why we can't sustain a forecheck. Stretch teams d zone coverage high to low(lack of PMDs kill us), and get the damn puck out the zone. Add to the terrible 5 on 5 play because of a system that doesn't mesh well with this roster.

Mez is a shell of his former self. He can't even stay healthy and he's not getting younger. He plays shelters minutes and still blows. He loses too many battles down low. His hockey sense in the offensive zone is low as well. Thats why he cant QB a powerplay. Also because he lacks poise. Foster is just an abomination. That's all that needs to be said. Gervais is what he is. A 6th or 7th defenseman that is playing to many minutes now. Another dman with no offensive hockey sense and his shot is pathetic. Luke Schenn is a physical defensive dman. He is fine in he role. You win with him and guys like Grossman. The problem is we don't have offensively skilled d-man that can complement them and control the tempo.

Now that lead me to Coburn. It is time for the front office to unload this guy. He logs ass these minutes yet he isn't even an all around defenseman. He's hardly a top shutdown guy either. What is he? What defines him? All he has is smooth skating and good size. He has the hockey sense of an ahler at times. He turns the puck over too much or he just simply loses a battle or takes himself out of position. It's time to cut ties with his inconsistency. He provides nothing in the offensive zone. Homer has built such a poor lineup in terms of the defense. There is no depth. It's laughable when guys like Lilja, Gervais, and Foster are the next men up.
