Bryz saving a shot.

Fresh Bryz Buyout Rumors Roll In

Times have definitely been better for Ilya Bryzgalov, with fresh rumors that our man in net may be added into the list of compliance buyouts coming this Summer.

Sources within the team, I know, that saying is far from my favorite, point to his performance in the shortened season being a key factor in the possible decision to relieve him of his duty and open some cap space for the rest of the team. Currently pulling a yearly salary of just over $5.5 million it would be a substantial sum regained that can be put to use elsewhere. Popular opinion among the fans at the moment would point to a much stronger defensive line, which is seeming increasingly likely with the just as recent developments that brings Ex-Islanders D-Man and Captain, Mark Streit to Flyers doorstep with prospect of a contract. More on this here.

Personally, I like Bryz and think he can be a great netminder, unfortunately though his time with the team obviously hasn’t lived up to a lot of people’s expectations and rightly so, with his past with the Phoenix Coyotes it had many fans believing a brick wall was being built in front of the net, but without a strong defense, or heavy focus on defense with the team in general, it has seemingly placed him in a different situation to what he was accustomed to. Current information points fingers towards the Flyers eyeing both LA Kings backup Jonathan Bernier and possibly Minnesota Wild’s Nick Backstrom as replacements, whether either will truly materialize is yet to be seen.

As it has been for the last couple of months these are still just as the title states, rumors, and even though they are most likely true due to the sheer amount of information coming out about it, it will be a waiting game to see if this car stops gracefully at the side of the road, or goes out in a ball of flames.
