The Man In The Iron Mask

Ilya Bryzgalov
He is the main reason the Flyers began reshaping their roster. Bryzgalov did not come cheap, signing a 9-year, $51M contract. Management decided they will no longer stick to their philosophy of having an incredible group of skaters, and a pretty good goalie. Now, they have an elite goalie, with a bit less depth in front of him.

Oh, you again…

Now, let’s not panic completely.  They didn’t get rid of everyone.  Here’s the guys you know and love that are coming back:

  • Danny Briere
  • Claude Giroux
  • Scott Hartnell
  • JVR
  • Blair Betts
  • Andreas Nodl
  • Chris Pronger
  • Braydon Coburn
  • Kimmo Timonen
  • Matt Carle
  • Andrej Meszaros
  • Sergei Bobrovsky

Pretty much the entire defense is coming back. The only battle will be for the 6th d-man spot between Lilja, Oskars Bartulis, and Erik Gustafsson. Up front, that’s a whole ‘nother story.
