Has it ever crossed your mind that MAYBE, Bryz isn't very good? There's about 94 games of evidence pointing that way.
No it is not the same difference. Millions of Ukrainians lost their lives and farms because of Stalin.

I don't think he was talking about you man.

He was talking about all the crazy Bryz troll accounts who ONLY post about Bryzgalov in every thread no matter what is going on.

That's not the point - the point was you were extremely ignorant, called out on it and now won't admit it. Hey come on say it - something easy like "Even though it doesn't matter to the point at hand - I concede that I was wrong and apologize to the people I offended". Not - "I DONT GIVE A ****"

Its ridiculous. No Flyer is out there right now. Not one. Maybe Luke. It's unfair to pin it on one guy, unless its the capt. And he's just not doing anything for us right now. But everyone is pinning it on Bryz.

Well, probably. The season killer was the week they lost all those division games. Despite the little streak and glimmer of hope, the odds have been against them. They could only really lose 2 of the last 10. Now they have no margin for error at all. Lose one more it's pretty well hopeless. Lose two more and it's time to start looking forward to the draft.

well consider how many times the Bryz-boys have had to reach into the not his fault cookie jar.

the excuses are really getting absurd now...

Someone hit Simmonds with a puck. That'll do it.

Be prepared for major Lavi fail and for Bryz to start the third.

Lose this and we need to go 6-2-2 realistically to have a good shot of reaching the playoffs.

When the Flyers play poorly in front of Bryzgalov - they get blown out. Average game - lose 4-2. Outstanding game? 4-3 comeback win.

He's just an average goaltender on a pretty bad team. And he's the highest paid goalie in the league. Too bad this isn't the NFL - they could just cut him.

I'm fully ****ing aware of the difference between all the former Soviet states, as well as the animosity many of those people feel towards Russia.

It's utterly irrelevant here for the purposes of the discussion.

Hope for some key losses from teams tonight and come to play against the isles with everything. Seasons not over like was said if we go 6-3-2 we have more of a chance of making than losing. And given we play the isles twice that will push us over. Figure your **** out, possibby see if mason is better than bryz, and prepare to be a real team.

Anyway, I don't think that the hate for Bryzgalov is motivated by his nationality. He's not been good enough, based on expectations before he got here, based on his pay, etc. His demeanor (which, I suppose, could be explained in part by a cultural gap) exacerbates the situation, but it is his inconsistent (or, if you are feeling less charitable, his consistently poor) play that is driving the backlash.

Yeah, I get the point you're trying to make, but you definitely went about it the wrong way.

I despised Bob and make no bones about it. He quit on his team and that was completely unacceptable and not easily forgiven. I was happy he was shipped to Columbus, respected the organization for doing so and for sending that message to the rest of the team.

Shrug. I have two friends Ivan and Igor. Both are from the Ukraine (moved here) and are unrelated. Both consider themselves Russian. In fact, they're a bit insular and can be a little nervous around "Non-Russians." I doubt they would be offended, but obviously, I can't speak for everyone. Although, Ivan, I think, uses the term Ukrainian more than Russian when he describes himself. He's 23.

Also, the Ukraine was part of the Soviet Union until 1991.
