Who said it was 5.5 a year? How do you guys know it's not 5.5 mil spread out the five years? I think it's certainly plausible and if true, these cap worries are nonexistent.


Given that Bryzgalov's rights were traded from Phoenix because he wants to get paid, given that he's stated he wants to be one of the highest-paid goaltenders in the league, and given that he's a fairly good goalie, $1.1m per year is absolutely implausible. There's a 0% chance that it's the case.

Eh, I think it would be better to try and sign Joey for half a million again and use the money where it is really needed on defense and a either a top six forward or another depth forward or two.


Joey is not an NHL goaltender. He is a career third-stringer.

Boy o boy, I feelz dum. Completely got mixed up between Bryzgalov and Nabokov.

I'd appreciate it if you can all permanently erase this gross error from your memory, ala MIB.

IF the rumours are true, $5.5 mill per year for five years, Bryzgalov's agent is god. I didn't know Holmgren was that stupid, or is he? Bryzgalov is so unproven in the playoffs, no one pays more than $3-4 mill for a good steady goalie anymore. Gone are the days with these > $5 mill/yr goalie.

Good, this means Philly will be gone in round 2 or so next year.

Joey MacDonald is a non issue. He want's a 1way contract and Holland will only offerr a 2-way. Joey is looking elsewhere at this point. (via MLive)

They'd easily have won this season if they had a solid number one in net.

With Holland saying he'll be looking to potentially add defense through trade, does someone like Matt Carle become a real possibility?

Don't really know if it is fair to call Bryz out on his playoff performances. He played on a bad team against the Wings so the good news for him is that he won't have to face the Wings in playoff hockey until the Cup Finals next year if Philly makes it.

Good point. And he did take the wings to game 7 last year.

How soon people here forget - it wasn't all that long that Datsyk was dubbed a playoff choke artist as well.

My logic is this - a good player in the regular season is still as good in the playoffs. A s***ty player in the regular is still s***ty in the playoffs, even if he scores 5 game winners.

The playoffs are way too small of a sample size to declare a person "clutch" in the playoffs or a dud. Every dog has its day and if that day happens to be in the playoffs, lucky for him. But luck is ALL it ever is. And vice versa.
Just for the record, the weather today is slightly sarcastic with a good chance of rain.

Anyone interested in Versteeg? I could see him getting traded to make room for Bryz.

I think Versteeg could do well here, but at the same time, he did not play all that well with Toronto or Philly... I would take him over Hudler, though.

I was interested in Versteeg and I think Datsyuk can make him a 25G maybe 30G tops guy. The only thing is we would have to give up prospects + picks for him now if they wanted to move him.

That is something that would have to be looked at closer. He didn't live up to Toronto's expectations of being a bigger point producer. Well most the the team didn't but they played better down the stretch when he wasn't there. I see him more of a replacement for Flip than Hudler if the Wings ever did get him.

Datsyuk cannot play on a line with everybody.

Versteeg is Hudler with a bigger paycheck; faster, but not as much offensive vision.

He'd drive the people here nuts.
If some bored artist wants to make me a signature, feel free to cut loose and do so.

Of course, I could get off my lame rear and do something.

More on topic, does anyone else think this is a big slap in the face of Bobrovsky? I mean the guy played pretty damn well for coming out of nowhere and had a spotty playoff in his rookie year. Give the kid a chance and bring in a responsible backup: ala Hedberg or Theodore.

It's not like Bryz played lights out when it counted.
