    He's terrible, even if he's playing well you know he'll implode at some point. He'll never ever be worth that contract, not even close.

    Per Chesnokov:

    Russia will not call up #Flyers Bryzgalov for the Worlds. They are sticking with #Avs Varlamov, according to Tretiak.

    Tretiak added the coaching staff will call Bryzgalov to explain the situation as a phone call "to show respect" per Tretiak.

    Even his home country doesn't want him.

    Bryz is not terrible. He had a couple stretches this year where he played quite well. Obviously he made a couple bad plays in the playoffs which will be remembered for a long time. People often tell me that Lalime was a good goalie, but all I can remember is that game 7 versus the Leafs.

    Bryz went 33-16-7, had a 2.48 GAA and a .908 save %, and 6 shutouts. On a team with some holes on D at various points in the season. He's not a terrible goalie, and he's not as good as some thought. And, yes, he can be streaky.

    They don't need him, Varlamov is a good goalie. Why put in a goalie who just finished his playoffs yesterday and had a poor performance?

    He'll never be worth his contract but the amount of hate he gets is ridiculous. That "blunder" was as much Timonen's fault as his. The Flyers D is among the worst in the league as far as I'm concerned. Put some good D around him and he will be a better goalie (true for all goalies).

    If there's one thing Anaheim can do, it's keeping their vets around. I have a feeling the warm weather keeps old guys in the mood to keep playing.

    Yeah, I saw that earlier today when DGB tweeted something about it. Just atrocious. Takes the whole "Burke-hate" thing to a new level...there were enough reasons to hate him before (have you seen how he wears his tie??), you don't need to go bashing him for standing up for happy rights. Especially when he had a happy son. Especially when that son is now dead.

    Talk about a low blow.

    It appears Melnyk is getting some money as the Mississauga majors were sold to Elliott Kerr.

    Name and uniform changes are expected.

    Remember when this was reported awhile back?

    "We've offered our services to the Canadiens in the past and they said no each time. I think that Larry would be very interested."

    Larry Freaking Robinson... turned down when HE offered his services. WTF?!?!
