He should worry more about all the beach balls finding the back of the net.

Really? He voiced his opinion about a city. I didn't see anything disgusting or offensive in that article.

Good for Bryz for speaking his mind. I'd love to see more players on the Coyotes share their honest thoughts about the team being relocated.

Good stuff from Bryz.

But, damn...

I thought he said "I'm goat" not "I'm a goat." That had meme potential.

There are 20,000 people in Phoenix whose first choice of language is Russian. I'm sure Bryzgalov has connected with that community.

wow, lots of ignorance in this thread.

first off, nothing for families to do? what about the Festival du Voyageur, the Manitoba's Children Museum, Folklorama, plus the hundreds of local sports teams. There is just as much for families to do in Winnipeg then any other city.

second, parks. Winnipeg is home to one of the most popular and most accoladed public urban spaces in Canada, the Forks. not to mention it is home to the MASSIVE Assiniboine Park that contains a zoo, cycling paths and tons of other family friendly activities.

third, the not many people live here comment. 750,000 isn't as much as Phoenix, but what does this have to do with anything? and theres no Russian people? from the Russian Cultural Association of Winnipeg:
Quote:
The Russian speaking population is now one of the fastest growing communities in Winnipeg.
from: http://winnipegrussia.imd.miupdate.com/

Winnipeg is also home to highest percentage IN CANADA of foreign students so they must be doing something right if they're attracting international young people for their universities.

some mroe stats from 2010:
Quote:
# Manitoba’s population grew by 17,400, the largest calendar year gain since at least 1971. This was driven by a record net migration inflow of 11,800 persons. Immigration hit 16,000 persons, a 65 year high.
# Manitoba is getting younger while Canada is getting older. For the second straight year, Manitoba has proportionately less persons 65 and over than Canada. This reverses a long-term trend.
# The decade of the 2000’s has seen Manitoba’s population grow to close to 96,000 persons. This is more than double the previous ten year period when population grew by less than 43,000.
from: http://www.mbchamber.mb.ca/2011/01/m...ear-in-review/

one more:
Quote:
Manitoba Posts Highest National Growth Rate in 4th Qtr.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Canada's population estimates

...."Manitoba posted the fastest demographic growth in the country in the fourth quarter with an increase of over 3,600 (+0.3%). Net international migration (+2,600) was the principal factor for the demographic growth in the province. As of January 1, the population of Manitoba was estimated at 1,243,700."
from: http://www.statcan.gc.ca/daily-quoti...0324b2-eng.htm

if it's such an awful place, why was it the fastest growing province in this period?

Bryzgalov is simply an ignorant buffoon. Winnipeg has a much lower crime rate than Phoenix, less pollution, less traffic, more cultural activities (including arguably the best theatre, dance, and music scenes in the country), natural beauty right outside the city (for Phoneix you have to drive through 4 hours of sprawl to get anywhere), and the most welcoming people in Canada. It has, since Canada's inception, been a place for people from all countries to settle and build they're life in this country. And you know what? Most of those people are still here. so **** you Bryzgalov and anyone else who spots out mindless lies about Winnipeg.

He can take his weak family and the frilly panties he wears back to Russia then.

I don't think Winnipeg wants a weak man who can't handle a few cold months anyway. What a Nancy!

Seriously, this guy is the best interview in the whole league. I think he's missing a few screws and I love him for it.

Maybe Bryzgalov is just nervous because he would actually have to play in front of a crowd for once.

The way Bryzgalov played this series, I doubt Winnipeg would offer him a contract anyway. Pretty ignorant comments.

It was pretty stupid of him to say what he did based off of two experiences there. However, that is the reputation that Winnipeg has. I would hope that TNSE would be smart enough to not run their potential organization off of free agency. Even if Winnipeg has improved, which it has, it still doesn't hold a candle to damn near any other team in the league. There is a lot of appeal almost anywhere else either with how the city is or the prestige of the franchise itself or a more proven management group.

Why the anger? An NHL player has mostly as much as only 2! opportunities to decide where to play all by himself during his career. They have a right to do whats the best for their families. So all Bryz wants to say is that he really likes it in Phoenix and would like to stay instead of getting UFA but if the team gets moved, he will bolt to Russia if not traded. Thats that easy!

Wouldn't want to re-sign that loser after his performance in the playoffs.

He's the reason the Coyotes lost. What a hack.

And what a load of crap too.

They get parks and recreation there.



I wouldn't resign if the city I was living in didn't have Parks and Rec.

Why is that, are they planning on paying players in Canadian Tire bucks or something?

He's an UFA, he can say whatever he wants about places he doesn't want to play in. He'll obviously not stay within the franchise if they move to Winnipeg. This is not more offending than players not willing to sign with the Islanders past off-season.

He doesn't want to leave one of the warmest places in North America for the coldest big city on the continent. Wow, he must be a total wimp hahahaha lolololol !!!!!!111

He's expressing his opinion about where he wants to work and live, he must be an ignorant buffoon and a real jerk!

Outsiders do not view Winnipeg as an attractive place to live. Get over it.

Yeah, why sign Bryz if they could have LaBarbera and Lalime, right?

Just about the same number in Winnipeg that speak Russian and/or Ukrainian (not the same as Russian, I know).
