I am sure Bryz will settle down next season.

Of Ilya, Holmgren said, his job is to stop pucks, not be comedy central.

I just don't see how that's going to turn out for either party. I mean, goalies are notoriously strange but that guy takes it to another level.
I remember watching 24/7 and there was that scene where Bryz was stuck eating at a table by himself cause nobody wanted to be near him, and that was when he was pretty fresh on the scene... I can't even imagine how alienated he might potentially feel now that he has become the scapegoat for the team losing to NJ.

I kinda feel bad for the guy... oh well bryz... money isn't everything.

No one even really knows if there will be a next season, nor what they will do with BS contracts Holmgren has been signing all over the place, so if Paul Holmgren said that the sky was blue, I would still go outside and check his source.

based on teh comments i have been reading holgrem sounds like a D-----B-G.

to succeed ina media market you really need an outgoing personality to deal with media. Look at Lundquist, the NY media eats his stuff up even when they lose, he has rarely been the scape goat in the media

Holmgren was a total genius here when the Flyers were beating the hell out of the Pens and eliminating them, now he's a moron again? Maybe he's somewhere in between. Trading away your Captain in Richards and regular season stud Carter while losing Pronger and still having a successful season is nothing to sneeze at. He makes his share of blunders too, but he's not nearly the worst GM in the NHL these days and is getting better results than some other media darlings like Brian Burke. I won't even talk about Columbus.

Everything I have read for several months suggests the salary cap will be raised to approximately 69mil unless the NHL gets the NHLPA to suck it some and drop their revenue sharing down a little. I'm thinking 69mil it is.

I wondered about the 24/7 thing too. I am hoping that it was because the guys just didn't want the cameras on all of them because Bryz was suddenly a big hit that week. I still like him. Just hate his team, so it's hard to wish him that much success.

Oh well "be heppeh", Bryz.

It's a "what have you done for me lately" league. And right now, the Flyers have lost 6 of their last 8 playoff games.

Their GM - mixed results. Some nice moves getting those stiffs out of Philly and replacing them with some Pens killers - but the Pronger & Bryz deals are really bad I think.

Those stiffs who are currently dominating the western conference post season right now?

Molinari had an article today where the GM's were told to sign their players and assume the Cap was going to 69 million.

Fingers crossed.

Yes, the stiffs that partied (or whatever) their way out of Philly. You may want to check the Kings roster, they are loaded - not to mention these guys are playing in front of a real goalie now.

Richards has been real good in the playoffs, at least from what I've seen so far - maybe less pressure now that he's not the captain, and other guys like Brown & Kopitar can carry the load. Carter has been somewhat quiet until tonight. The trades are going to work out well for both of them I think.
