Komrade Bryzgalov wrote:Yes, he [Stalin, murderer of 60 million people] knew what he was doing. He is described as a ‘bloody tyrant.’ But at the time it couldn’t be any other way. Yes, there were innocent people who were victims of repressions… But it happens.

Stalin killed millions of Russian's hopes, Bryzgalov killed millions of Flyers fans dreams.

The country was in ruins, [people] needed to survive somehow. The country needed to be rebuilt, and in order to do that it needed to be held in iron hands.


eesh. one could say the same thing about hitler and germany, no?

Eh...I think its probably a little easier to rule a country thats 1/100 the size. Not trying to say Stalin was a good person, but I don't think its really a fair comparison.

Wow really interesting view from someone that grew up there. He's probably going to catch a lot of flack for saying this stuff but man I couldn't imagine growing up there and having parents or grand parents that lived during the Iron Curtain days.

What a complete headcase. Feeling "positive" about a genocidal maniac like Stalin? Really?

Maybe Bryz and Tim Thomas can have a debate one day. That would at least be entertaining since both of them are better known now for their mouths than their goaltending. At least Timmay has won something while Bryz is still just bleh.

So Bryz is a Stalin apologist.

“Positive. I see logic in his action. Not without going too far, of course. But he came to power in a country that had just lived through a revolution. There were so many spies, enemies, traitors there. A lot of people still had guns after the civil war. The country was in ruins, [people] needed to survive somehow. The country needed to be rebuilt, and in order to do that it needed to be held in iron hands. Then WWII began. A lot of people came back from that war with guns as well. There was devastation all around, the country had to be rebuilt, had to be able to defend itself. There were so many criminals.”

I'm speechless.
