Q&A with Bryz

Hey fellas, just saw this one on one with Bryz on my twitter feed, and thought it was worth having it's own thread over here. Don't know if it's been discussed before or whatever, go easy on the bashing if so
http://www.courierpostonline.com/art...-clean-out-day

Btw, damn does this guy seem exasperated with the media, and rightfully so. He might be average, overrated, whatever you want to call him, but i firmly believe that all that goes on in the papers-TV has a negative effect on his game.

I like when Bryz rips the media coverage of the Flyers.

"Was the media coverage unfair?
It’s not like fair or unfair. We already had the conversation. It’s just ridiculous. Just ridiculous. Sometimes you’re reading and it’s like, ‘Oh my God, who is this lunatic?’ What are they writing about. It was nothing close to the truth or close to related to hockey. You read this and you’re like, ‘Oh my God, I’ve got to deal with these people every day.’"

I enjoy the second half of his answer to that question more:
"Before you’re writing something you’ve got to read what you’re writing. I’m two years here. I never saw it like good article with everything, like, ‘Flyers lose the game because this, this, this, this, this. They need to improve their game like this, this, this or this.’ I never. That’s what called professionalism. It’s like, ‘OK, this reporter knows hockey. He knows what he talking about.’"

He is correct, the Philly reporters can't seem to ever analyze the game and write articles about that, but only look for what they can turn into the "hot story"

I don't care if the media doesn't like him, but do care that his teammates don't. He's a cancer, buyout please.

Really isn't a good option out there to replace him.

YOU might not like him, some guys in Pho. might not like him, but no indication whatsoever that anyone on the Flyers has any kind of problem with him.

Strange, doesn't hang out with teammates, can't save pucks and has the mindset of "it's just a game" while suggesting he's getting criticized too hard. What's not to like.

The guy said on the record and face to face whatever everyone on this board wants to be said to these writers and we still blast him?

And before I am getting ripped, my post is not about quality of his game, neither it is about his cap hit.

I like Bryz's personality. He'd be awesome to chat with at a bar over a beer.

However, I don't want him on my hockey team. He's an alienating and attention-scraping presence.

On top of that, he's not all that great in net. People blaming the defense across HFBoards are kidding themselves. Bryzgalov has played like ****. In fact, he'll be the first person to tell you that.

Completely agree with everything about the media. We've known for a while how unprofessional the Philadelphia media can be, how invasive in can be, and how reactionary it can be.

Still, I think we should part ways with Bryz. No need to ask him about it 50 million times. No need to drive the stake home.

I understand that the Philadelphia media exists to entertain. It's pop culture. It sells. It's absurd and overbearing. We just kind of have to deal with it. It shouldn't be that way, but it's designed that way by its very nature.

Kudos for ripping the media.

Wouldn't have needed to be said if he stopped a few more pucks.

Not necessarily true. He was singled out by them, because of his responses. No other under performer (Leighton, Briere or others) was as targeted as Bryz has been.

Does anyone remember when Panotch asked Leighton a question during the Stanley Cup that basically insinuated that Leighton's lucky to be on our team and Pronger started going at Panotch?

Good times. Besides his great play, I sure do miss him putting these clowns in their place.

It is! I love Bryz's mindset. There's much more to life than a sport. While the mindset may not mesh well with his paycheck, some people need to take a step back, relax, and realize what he has.

I wonder if the same people that criticize Bryz's mindset, answer the question "How is work?" with "UH, it's just a job."

It's so much easier to peg someone else.
