Well, on Friday last week, I was roaming around hockeybuzz noticing that nothing was going on, and I silently wished for some action. Boy, was that a mistake. Next thing I know, I see "Selanne to Philly (e4)" and I curse Ek. I wanted good rumours, not bad. I mean come on Ek, can't you weed them out. I immediately went to the comments and posted a comment that implied that ...
If you look at a copy of the Ducks depth chart, you will notice something very odd. Right now they are carrying 3 goaltenders in Jean-Sebastian Giguere, Ilya Bryzgalov and Jonas Hiller. This made sense when the Ducks started the season because JS was on the injured reserve, however he has since returned to the lineup and is playing a strong game. Also playing well is...
There once was a time when a struggling team could be counted on to make a trade in an attempt to change it's fate. There was a time when teams would swap key players in an attempt to shake up their roster and kick-start them onto the path of success. That time is gone. With the end of the lockout fans were promised more player movement along with more parity in the...

Dear Darcy, PICK UP MARK RECCHI! If you need inspiration, just look at Ilya Bryzgalov. He gets picked up by Phoenix and ends up winning 4 straight! From, Sabres fans

Shake and Bake

Once again Babcock mixed up the lines, putting the youngsters Filppula and Hudler up with Datsyuk against the Habs, and magic happened.....who does this guy think he is?? Scotty Bowman?? After a short stretch of not-so-stellar performances, and a couple of injuries to key checking-line players, Mike Babcock was basically forced to shuffle the forward lines around to get ...

Who Would Have Thought?

[b]I mean no offense[/b] here to the Coyotes or to their fans but I never thought that this pre All Star break game between the Preds and Yotes would be so meaningful to both teams. [b]Seriously...the Coyotes have been awful[/b]. Last year, for instance, they finished last in the West and the only team with a worse record was the Flyers. Nobody thought that they woudl ...

A Tale of Two Goalies

Posted Thursday | Comments 4
The Flames needed a win at home, and they did exactly that; gaining a decisive 2-1 victory over the Phoenix Coyotes. Not the prettiest game in the world to watch but a win is a win anyway you slice it. With two of the better goaltenders going head to head, one could have guessed that this would have been a low scoring affair. Let’s compare their stats after tonightâ€...

Sabres Crush Coyotes

Posted Monday | Comments 0
Sabres Take First Place In Eastern Conference Buffalo (29-11-6) at Phoenix (28-16-5) With the New Jersey Devils loss, Buffalo had a chance to take over first place in the Eastern Conference. Phoenix and Buffalo met once earlier this season back in the beginning of the season, with the Sabres winning 2-1. The Sabres come in with 7-0-1 record against the Western Confe...
Ilya Bryzgalov has once again opened his big mouth an insulted the entire country of Canada. For those who didn't see this guys interview with regards to Edmonton, please see this link: [url]http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=8531230620351334232#[/url] That was a few years back when he was in Anaheim. This time around he has now picked on Winnipeg. Saying ... ...
There are some nights when I think Don Cherry has lost his mind - and suits and ties do nothing to convince me otherwise. That being said, Don Cherry was 100%, absolutely spot on tonight. The four points Grapes made tonight were brilliant: 1) What the hell was Hamhuis doing taking a dirty, cheap shot at Bolland's head? 2) Bryzgalov is a joker and should keep his ...
The Philadelphia Flyers have started the summer a little early. As Per CSNPhilly.com the Flyers on Tuesday acquired the rights to goalie Ilya Bryzgalov from Phoenix for forward Matt Clackson, a third-round pick in 2012 and a conditional draft pick. Bryzgalov went 36-20-10 for the Coyotes last season with a 2.48 goals against average a .921 save percentage and seven shut...
In acquiring the negotiating rights to goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov, the Flyers addressed an area of concern that experts had called an organizational black hole since the heyday of Ron Hextall in the late 1980's. I disagree with black hole, however, the Flyers had not made goaltending a top priority since then. By trading for Bryzgalov's rights, and according to most repo...
Anyone remember the Comcast Sportsnet commercial with Flyers Beat Writer Tim Panaccio and a Flyer Fan? The fan cuts off Panaccio and begins to blab nonsense, "The Flyers are an F5 tornado" he says. That is an understatement today as the Flyers not only shocked Flyerdom, but also the entire NHL as well. The Flyers began to turn heads when they announced that they had tr...

Upsetting the Apple Cart

Paul Holmgren, for better or worse, has done it in Philadelphia. When the Flyers traded for the right's to free agent goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov, everybody knew they were serious...finally...about addressing their question mark in goal. Everybody also knew that signing Bryzgalov to a new contract would require some type of sacrifice from the current roster in order t...
Well it’s been a long summer. Actually it’s been 95 days since Zdeno Chara lifted the Cup over his head. It’s also been the worst summer in hockey history as the hockey world was plagued by death. This season will be a season for mourning of Derrick Boogaard, Rick Rypien and Wade Belak and all those on the Russian Lokomotiv team. It hasn’t been easy to digest. ...

Could Bryz be the one?

Posted Friday | Comments 0
Growing up, my father told me of the bumper stickers that became popular in Philadelphia in the 1970s. "Only God saves more than Bernie." The sticker, in reference to Bernie Parent, the only goalkeeper in the Flyers' franchise history to win a Stanley Cup, has likely been copied and used in cities across the country. Just enter your goalkeeper's name and it works. ...

85 in a row

Posted Sunday | Comments 0
April 6, 2010. The Philadelphia Flyers were fighting for their playoff lives. They'd recently lost seven of eight, but were fresh off a 4-3 win over Detroit. They were scrapping, scoreboard watching, and on this day shutting out the Toronto Maple Leafs. Claude Giroux scored on the power play in the first period. Mike Richards added an empty netter. Daniel Carcillo and A...

Flyers Off On the Right Foot

Posted Monday | Comments 0
Two games into the new look Flyers' season it appears that they seem comfortable with one another. In fact if you had no clue what was going with the team, you may have thought that they've been playing together for awhile now. Just two regular season games and two wins have many fans that were feeling doubtful with this summer's moves, having a change of heart. Thurs...
Welcome to a new feature on the blog, "Wind Sprints." Much like the endurance-building exercise of a hockey team, we'll do four notes - blue line, red line, far blue line and goal line. At the end, instead of being exhausted, you'll be better informed. Or both. [b]Blue Line [/b]It's going to be an odd site watching Mike Richards skate on Wells Fargo ice Saturday. ...

The Silence Of The Bryz

Posted Tuesday | Comments 7
The Flyers attempted to enact a new media policy which would limit access to goalie Ilya Bryzgalov, whose highly self critical rant following the Flyers recent 9-8 loss to the Winnipeg Jets sparked commentary from just about every segment of the hockey media world. The policy originally would have Bryzgalov available after games, only. Then it was later amended to limit...

Fear Not, Philly Phaithful

Is it just me, or has a wave of dread washed over Flyerdom? A few concerns I have heard are: Pronger is out for the season and playoffs, Claude Giroux was concussed and is rushing back too soon, Ilya Bryzgalov has not played like the all star he was in Phoenix, and the list goes on and on. I have one word for the fans: RELAX! If you are a Flyers fan like me, you view ...
I will be the first one to admit that I was a little more than miffed at the Russian tender for saying the idiotic things that he did about Winnipeg. Yes, I can understand why he would say those things, but they were unfounded opinions which he later recanted before his first visit to the Manitoba capital city. At the time he made the statements I thought to myself "scre...
Ring around the goalie, pocket full of? Nothing rhymes with goalie that would sound relevant. However, some may look at the Flyers current goalie situation as a ring around. To begin, Bryz started off the season playing very well going 3-1-1 in his first five games which included a shutout, something the Flyers didn’t see last season. Then Bryz began to slowly decline an...
It’s been the story of the Flyers’ life this season. Bad bounces + deflections = a goal past Ilya Bryzgalov. Nothing changed during last night’s finale of a Home-and-Home series against the Ottawa Senators. With just 1:11 left in the third, Filip Kuba took a shot from the point that changed direction and went passed Bryzgalov. That was the 2nd time that game ...
When Ilya Bryzgalov signed a 9 year, $51 million dollar contract on June 23, it wasn’t even the biggest Flyers news of the day. The signing of the enigmatic Flyers netminder took a backseat to the trade of Jeff Carter to Columbus and the shocking blockbuster deal that sent Flyers fan favorite and captain Mike Richards to Los Angeles in return for Wayne Simmonds, highly t...

Flyers: 2 Games Down

Posted Tuesday | Comments 0
Well, the Flyers have played, and dropped, two games to start the season: the first against Pittsburgh and the second against the Buffalo Sabres. All in all, even though they lost both games, they didn’t look as bad as the record shows. They got some pretty rough calls by the refs especially in the Sabres game. Two Flyers goals were called back simply because the refs...

Friday Fly-By

The Flyers travel to Washington tonight for a crucial matchup with the Capitals. Both teams are reeling and going to come out of the gate desperate. The Flyers need to match that intensity level and not just weather the storm. These 2 points up for grabs tonight are key if they want to stay in the playoff race for the Atlantic division.

5 Thoughts on Game Day

Posted Monday | Comments 0
#1. The Bryzgalov everyone in Philadelphia expected back in June 2011 seems to have finally surfaced and is putting up solid numbers so far this season (2.27 GAA, .921 SV%). It has been 9 games since Bryz has let more than 3 past him and he has been more solid than the Flyers 5-6-1 record would indicate. On the other side of the ice the James Reimer that Toronto fans saw a...

Bryzgalov vs. Mason

Posted Monday | Comments 8
Since the Flyers acquired backup goaltender Steve Mason from the Columbus Blue Jackets at the trade deadline, the buzz among local Philly beat writers is whether Bryzgalov or Mason will be the starter next season, and if this spells an abrupt end for Ilya in a Flyer jersey via compliance buyout. Since the deadline, Mason has signed a 1-year extension at $1.5 million, ma...
My first blog will be pretty straight forward; I am convinced the flyers will use their compliance buy out on Ilya Bryzgalov. Not too much of a shocker for most, really. For those who do not know, the salary cap is dropping to roughly 67 million in the 2013-2014 season, which poses problems for certain clubs, including the flyers. To remedy this, the NHL gave each team two...
[b]Hey, hey, hey, Goodbye[/b] What a whirlwind off-season for the Flyers thus far! First Danny Briere met the unemployment ax and now the lightning rod for criticism in net has been given his walking papers. Ilya Bryzgalov was informed by the Flyers management yesterday that they would use their second compliance buyout on him. This is great news for their salary cap situ...
[b]Ilya Bryzgalov, 33 - Philadelphia[/b] Contract: $51.0m/9yrs Buyout: $23.0m/14yrs This contract is the definition of what the power of having a union can do for you. For most people who are fired or let go they are lucky to get severance and even if they do, that severance is almost nothing to kick back on and retire early with. Meet Ilya Bryzgalov. The epitome o...
Coming into the 2013-2014 season, I was rather impressed with the moves that newly appointed GM, Craig MacTavish, had made for the Oilers. Granted, he didn't bring in any huge names, but he also didn't sit idly by (see: Steve Tambellini). It seemed like a fresh this was finally going to be the year that the Oilers came out of the basement to play with the big boys. He also...

Top Available Tenders

Posted Saturday | Comments 0
Tim Thomas, Ilya Bryzgalov, Ray Emery. Under talked about and under appreciated potential difference makers in net for many teams. All three of these tenders could use a nice change of scenery, or if re-signed they need a confidence boost from their respected teams. These guys have potential to carry a good portion of the game load serving as back-up for any team, or they ...
