Some chatter of late – or, in some cases, since January – that the Flyers plan on using one of their two amnesty cards to buy out Bryz. They can’t officially do it until 48 hours after the completion of the Stanley Cup Finals, but it seems as though it’s looking more and more likely that they will.
The ice under which Ilya Bryzgalov has been standing in goal for the Flyers has developed some cracks.
Despite a solid endorsement from club chairman Ed Snider in late March, followed by a more tepid one in May, the Flyers have begun an internal discussion on whether to add Bryzgalov to the two compliance buyouts this summer, according to sources within the team.
Pannacio goes on to say that the team hasn’t made up their mind yet, but that the potential is certainly there. No shit.
