Philadelphia Will Likely NOT Buy-Out Ilya Bryzgalov

Dreger just said on Insider Trading that Philadelphia is not planning on buying out Ilya Bryzgalov this summer, though they could still in 2014. He said there are rumors of a rift between Bryzgalov and coach Peter Laviolette, but since it's believed Laviolette is safe, it's up to the coach to mend fences between the two.

Interesting stuff since most expected him to be bought out.

Que? Most expected him to be back. Briere is the buyout target this summer.

I have always predicted that the Flyers would not, and argued that they should not, buy out Bryzgalov. People keep telling me that "it's no big deal for corporate giant Comcast" and "Bryzgalov SUCKS," but I think those people have (a) no concept of how business works, and (b) failed to consider the paucity of better options in net.

I can only hope that we institute a more defensive system next year, whether it be under Laviolette or a new coach. Bryz can put up good numbers in the right system. Clearly, the run-and-gun system we employ now is not suiting our team's strengths (or at least covering up our weaknesses).

What do you mean paucity? The Flyers have "The Mase -iah"

It always made more sense for it to happen next summer unless they had an immediate need of that cap space for a can't turn down kind of opportunity.

not surprised given how much $ it would cost. What we know is that under a better system, Bryz can be really good.

He was 17 games over .500 last year and had a player of the month award. This year, 1 game over .500 with Philly dealing with all of the injuries to their D-men. The system they are playing will not reward ANY goalie with nice stats. BUT, if he is the reason they faulter next year, they will re-visit it.

People forget that philly had 103 points last year(6th best) and finished in the 2nd round of the playoffs...which is top 8. All while dealing with the Pronger injury.

Anything else on Insider trading besides this? Flyer fans pretty much knew this, now 2014 is a different ball game.

So, basically what this says, is that water is still wet.

The drop off in the stuff that Dregs reports these days compared to mid last season has been massive.

Not surprising.

Bryz isn't that bad. The Flyers defense is almost as bad as the Avs defense, and Laviolette has a run and gun high offense system. Bryz gets hung out to dry a lot.


If the Flyers improve there Defense this summer, Bryz will improve his play.


Its up to the coach and goalie to mend there relationship though. Need to get over the kiddy stuff.

Some people here need to remember that the average fan isn't aware of the same things we hockey nuts around here are aware of.

This is getting to be the worst contract of the modern era.

Anyone that even suggested that Bryzgalov would be bought out this summer didn't watch the Flyers for more than a game this season.

I agree. He hasn't even been that bad. He's actually been pretty good on some nights. The flyers problems certainly don't lie with Bryz although he's an easy scapegoat for the casual observer. He's a target and always will be.

I'm not surprised. The Flyers woes this season don't derive from Bryzgalov, and I think they probably would have made the playoffs in an 82 game schedule.

Clearly he using the self improvement stratagie promoted by Cher from Clueless. You learn one new word each day and try to shoehorn it into a sentence somewhere no matter how little sense it makes.

I'm a Flyers fan and not much of a Bryz fan but you have to cut him a bit of slack. Other than the whole Pronger situation, the Flyers D has been pretty banged up this year. This was their D lineup last night for example...

Oliver Lauridsen - Luke Schenn
Andreas Lilja - Erik Gustafsson
Brandon Manning - Matt Konan

Seriously!

And they won 2-1!

Hi save percentage as a Flyer of .905 puts him in the bottom tier of NHL goalies. Only so much of that can be deflected by blaming the Flyers' team defense.

Over the last two seasons Dubnyk has put up a healthy .917, and I don't believe that Edmonton's defense has been worse than Philadelphia's.

False. He's facing point blank shots every night. He's not a top-end goalie or anything, but he's certainly better then "bottom tier".

And false. If that were happening, he would have been let go before the playoffs were out of reach just to see if they could find a spark. He'll certainly be on a short leash at the start of next season though.
