You obviously don't watch other games, Miller has 2 shutouts against one of the deepest teams in the NHL.. not sure if serious. Maybe if the defense wasn't giving odd man rushes here and there he would have been alot better. The only reason Buffalo is in that series is because of Miller.

No kidding. Miller was phenomenal last game. He's had two amazing games, and two mostly solid ones.

For the stat watchers, his SV % is now .937 with two shutouts. But if you watch the games, as you said he's the only reason they have a shot in this series.

Your New York Islanders starting goaltender, 2011-12.

Seriously, I don't think he'll ever play for the Wings.


It would have to be a trade, depends what the Islanders want.

What kind of color is red? Red is a warning, a declaration, a color that says I'm ready to do what it takes. Red is focused and driven because red doesn't like second place. So what kind of color is red? Their kind.

The Red Wings will have the roster and the cap space to bring in a decent D man and a decent Winger, depending on who we invite back. As previously stated we have some tough roster decisions with younger players.

I don't see the Wings getting Bryz unless he wanted to play for less than 2.0 million. I could however see Tampa making a play for him.

He would be a very good pick up for them.
They could do a lot worse than Bryz in TB, he would make an already decent team very good.
IMO they are already better than PHO.

“Told him if he wasn't ultra-competitive he couldn't come here. If he didn't bring it every day he couldn't come here, because he was going to hate it if he didn't, dislike the coach and dislike playing here.

Next year, I think we'll have Howard and one of Osgood/Conklin at a $1 million or less cap hit.


What is this board's obsession with Conklin? He's a decent goaltender, and did well in his time here, but he's nothing special and he's not coming back.

Tampa is probably the best destination for Bryzgalov. With the Ellis trade earlier this season, Yzerman has no goaltender signed for next season. Roloson certainly hasn't retired, but he doesn't have much time left. Bryzgalov is in his prime and is one of the league's best goalies, but Tampa could pick him up pretty much unopposed.

Francois Allaire is Toronto's goalie coach. Allaire was the goaltending coach for the Ducks when Bryzgalov was there, and it's been said that those two don't get along. So I doubt he will be teaming up with him anytime soon.

Personally I think he's headed to Russia.

Sorry I missed this.

Conklin's cheap, comes with little to no expectation of demanding a starter's job and can play well for stretches in the case of injury. He's exactly what Howard needs for the next two years until the Wings decide if Howard is the long-term solution. I wouldn't expect Bryzgalov to play less than 60 games a year if we're bringing him in, even though the ink still isn't quite dry on Howard's extension.

Do the Flyers take a stab at Bryz in the off-season?

I didn't even think of that, the Flyers are in desperate need of stable goaltending. Everyone knows about the Leighton/Boucher tandem in last year's playoffs, and they've already used three goalies in the first round alone this year.

You do realize that, if Laviolette would just stopf****** around with his goaltending, he HAS a solid netminder with good history in the regular season and playoffs?

Boucher has a .935% and 2.12 GAA right now, with 3 wins. He was the team's starter last year until he went out with injury, and he played better than Leighton. He has carried the Flyers deep into the playoffs before that.

And beyond that; the Flyers have Bobrovsky and Leighton signed for next season for a total of close to $3.5m. Boucher's deal is under $1m. If they sign Bryzgalov, what happens? More of the three-headed monster, with a $4m raise and much worse playoff performance?

Note: If Osgood ends up retiring this summer, and Holland signs a vet backup, Boucher is definitely on my short list.

Bobrovsky`s on a EL deal and can be sent down if need be. Leighton`s been through waivers before and no one took him. With all the new money they`ll get under the cap, I`m sure if they took a swing at a money goalie like Bryz or Vokoun, they`d send Leighton to the AHL - there`s $1 million for Bryz-Vokoun right there - and maybe give Boucher a backup job for roughly what he`s getting this year. Remember Boucher hasn`t had a legit starter`s job since before the lockout. Cap goes up 4-5 million, there`s your Bryz-Vokoun money.

The only extension they have to worry about potentially hurting them financially this off-season is Leino, but to help take care of that they could also save $2 million by telling Zherdev where he can go.

Leighton has a one-way deal, so his money will still stay in the cap no matter where he plays.

And I'm 95% sure that the Flyers won't even try to sign Zherdev. But they may still have to let Leino go. Leino could ask 3,5m (max) but that would mean going to the FA market and probably to some s***ty team. I think it would be wise to him to understand that and be happy with 3m or less.

All a one-way deal means is that Leighton is paid the same no matter where he plays, NHL or AHL. Since Leighton is younger than 35, his contract comes off of the cap if he passes through waivers and is sent down to the AHL, but they still have to pay him at his NHL salary since he doesn't have a 2-way deal.

You sure? Then why don't every team just give one-way deals more easily then? I doubt it's about money. I mean pretty much every organisation in the NHL has enough money for everything. It's just the cap hit that becomes a problem.

I don't know how this really goes, so that's why I'm asking. But I think it's just weird if one-way deal in the AHL doesn't have any effect on the cap.
