For the record, Bryz LOVES his old Phoenix coach DaveTippett. Part of reason he had issues with us is he wanted us to rip Lavy

lol, Bryz to PHX?
Looks like Randy Miller is making stuff up as he goes.

Addition by subtraction here. Even if we don't sign anyone this year to be a goalie or fill up that cap space, we'll have free cap space the next 6+ seasons to improve this team. Losing Bryz is nothing but a positive thing for this franchise.

Agreed. Randy Miller couldn't wait to go on twitter and tell tales. It's embarrassing. It's one thing for fans to be happy but the media is a joke.

Well if they are just looking to sign a back up you don't need any leverage. If hey wanted a trade or something then yeah, I agree.

Someone should photoshop Miller's, and the other Philly media's faces onto a Mean Girls movie poster.

I'll say this:

The Philadelphia media is showing themselves to be absolute trash. You won't see Ray Didinger or the older crew pulling this nonsense, and it is unfortunate.

Many of us had qualms with Bryz coming in, but he kicked ass that first month. The reality is we run him into the ground and then expected him to get better as the team got progressively worse.

Yes, his contract was too large, and that isn't his fault.

I think of the Eagles' player who recently said something to the effect of "You all [the media and some fans] are calling me out for missing optional work with the team to be a father. You'd say the same thing if I had fifteen kids and was a horrible human being." The reality is that is becoming more apparent, and it is unfortunate.

This is good for the team, but that circus surrounding these circumstances is, at best, sad.

Necessary step. I thought, it should have been done next year.

However, if Flyers do not fix their team approach to defense, no goalie will ever succeed here.

They do not need to be defense first, the whole team just needs to be defense minded

I'm fine with Horton, like the guy, but it doesn't make send to bring Luongo when we already had our own Luongo..
Horton could have been easily had with the Briere buy out.

I just don't get it

If Luongo is bought out and can be signed reasonably, I'm all over it.

Adios Bryz. I'm disappointed he never was able to find his game here, but it was a monstrous and terrible contract from day 1 regardless. I'm a little scared of going with just Mason so we need to find someone, but the options scare me as well.

Here's to July 1, 2013...
