Bob on Bryz: Philly is a 'severe city' for goalies

Guess we'll see if Mason can handle the heat..along with the goalie Holmgren gets to "insulate" Mason from the pressure I presume.

Discuss the merits of Philadelphia as a "goalie heeel (hell)" as Bryz once said was not true and that he could overcome...

Quote:
Sergei Bobrovsky on Bryzgalov’s contract BO: ‘Philly is a severe city for the goalies. Bryz was under pressure and i fully understand him’

More Bobrovsky: ‘Medias’ and fans’ opinions weigh too much in Philly. Sometimes those are contradictory’

Sorry Bob. I liked you, but you have to worry about earning that contract, not what's going on in Philadelphia.

I think he'd be better off saying "severe organization," because it seems they have no idea what they're doing in net.

Yeah..I agree. It's self perpetuating

I hope we get/have a goalie one day that turns this perception (real or imagined) on its head. I worry about Mason not being able to overcome Philadelphia's goalie curse..

Flyers and Blue Jackets will play against each other a lot more now.

I am sure Vinny and Co. will let you know how great it is to be in Columbus.

Mason has as much talent and success (mostly pre-NHL) if not more than anyone we've had in forever.

He was in a crappy situation in Columbus, made the best of it his first season, and then got sucked in by a vortex of despair.

He's been welcomed into the locker room far more than Bryz ever was in just a short time. He's played and won with a bunch of these guys as well.

He's motivated, talented, and has a fantastic team cemented around him.

I think Mason will be just fine.

I hope you are right....I'm just really tired of this. At least the Ranger's organization, except for a small window before Lundqvist arrived, rarely deal with this goalie dilemma ..at least not to our extent since we always seem to have a questionable number 1 goalie. Really Chechmanek was the closest thing and that was only for a few years.

I find myself agreeing with a lot of your posts. This x1000. I know I'm not crazy when I say the guys blocked more shots for Mase than Bryz.

Mason has it in him to be a #1 goalie, he showed that when he won the Calder. I know guys can make turn a round's with changes in scenery. If he can stay focused, and play like he did at the end of last year, then this could be our chance to move past the whole goalie issue.

Well, we were 3rd in the NHL in blocked shots...

We must've been blocking them for Bryz too.

Also, you might want to be careful with that whole "agreeing with me" thing. It's frowned upon around here since I'm "as bad as Timmy, if not worse."

Because it's spinning half-truths and doesn't shed any real light on the situation.

It puts more emphasis on how the city screwed Bryzgalov up and far less emphasis on the fact that Bryzgalov's terrible play was the reason that the city attacked him in the first place.

Bryz was embraced like a hero when he signed. Remember Philly Cheese Bryz and all the fun we were all having?

The media even played nice for the longest time. In fact, HFBoards was being the hardest on Bryz while the media tip-toed the issue forever. I remember being particularly pissed about this.

When the media FINALLY commented on Bryzgalov's poor play, it was everybody else's fault; Laviolette, his defense, the system, his tandem partner, the media, and even the fans.

Good riddance.

He sucked here, basically from day one. Everyone gave him a chance. Even I gave him a chance. When he signed, I didn't like the contract, but I said many times that at least we won't have to worry about it anymore. He can probably make up for the losses at other areas because of his cap hit.

I now regret saying the slightest good thing about him.

What is the chance that we can stop talking about Bryzgalov within the next year?

The media is retarded here. and there is more pressure on a goalie in philly then elsewhere especially with as ridiculous a contract as the one we gave bryzgalov. Management created the situation themselves especially in light of new evidence that noone was bidding against us. I believe to this day bryzgalov would've worked out if we gave him a raise from the 4.2 he was making maybe 5 mil for 5 years and realized that you can't gut a team with youngins and newcomers, slap em together and expect immediate success. it don't work that way. and bob forget it. thats the ultimate in impatience. laviolette is behind all this recent B.S. I hope it works out for us tho, i just hope my recurring nightmare of homer and laviolette getting the boot next summer don't come true. or maybe i do.

Lots of sour grapes and petty bitterness in here. He's not exactly far off. That is the perception of our organization and he wasn't given an ideal development time here exactly. The fans here do tend to be rough on goalies since we've been in a constant goalie carousal for a long time now. I personally believe Bob was the best goalie talent we've had here in a while and his Vezina kind of confirms that for now at least.

Don't be mad at Bob for a popular opinion as harmless and semi-true as the one he stated.
