It would really be surprising to me if Bryz were not bought out this offseason. Doesn't mean it won't happen, but I would be very surprised. If for no other reason, the fact that he remains on the team would be such a distraction...that is of course, unless he reverts to pre-philadelphia form.

Holmgren told Winter that Bryzgalov was one of the Flyers' best players and he was "not the problem."

This past season he played much better until he started falling apart

Unfortunately that was just two weeks.

He has to be lying. If not, well...we know why the Flyers suck at finding goalies.

Maybe I am being naive but I think they might very well bring Bryz back. Buying out Briere, moving Mezz, and LTIR Pronger gives them plenty of cap room. If they believe in Mason, there really is no reason to bring in someone else except cap space. They will be paying Bryz one way or another, they might as well get one more year out of him to see if Mason can take over.

If Bryzgalov is on this team on July 1st, Snider needs to put Homer's ass on the street.

Holmgren not possibly lying? If that is true humans don't breathe air or die everyday.

It's not totally unrealistic that this could be Snider's call over Homer. Hell, Bryz could still get bought-out for all we know.

Either way you slice it this is horrible. Bryzgalov back next season, terrible. Holmgren lying to another agent and ruining relationships, terrible.

It's official Holmgren is a moron and the Flyers are screwed.

I'm thinking it's a lot of bad reporting and perhaps some misunderstandings. I bet Holmgren said something like, "Currently we do not plan on buying Ilya out," and of course that is interpreted as a guarantee. If the Flyers are able to acquire a replacement for Bryzgalov - but it Bernier, Emery or whoever else, I'm sure they would then plan on buying him out. Bryzgalov is obviously an option and is their current goaltender but it doesn't hurt to explore other avenues!

Agree. They aren't just going to buy him out without somebody coming in to replace him. If the market dries up and there isn't a viable upgrade Bryz stays.

Winter and the Flyers have a long history. Winter represented Ron Hextall in the late 80s/early 90s before Hextall fired him. Winter was replaced by Steve Mountain who, at the time, was Paul Holmgren's agent, too.

Is Winter also Jeff Carter's agent?

No reason to keep him around when we all know he'll be gone by next season regardless.

Dreger says some players dislike Bryz in the locker room. If this is true you have to cut ties with the guy. The last thing the team needs is factions and distractions in the room.

Remember with Holmgren he tells half-truths. He's half lying..the other half of this is the truth that Bryzgalov is not the solution either...

Update from the locker room Dwayne Wade just took a huge ****. Paul Holmgren denied it happened.
