Ilya Bryzgalov was traded to the Wild this week and it seems he’s hitting it off quite well with the local media. From the Star Tribune:
We had another fun one-minute press scrum with Bryzgalov today.
Q: How much are you looking forward to starting Sunday?
A: We practice to play in the game.
Q: How excited are you to play in front of the home fans?
A: Yeah, sure.
Q: Feel more comfortable in practice?
A: Yeah, better and better.
Q: Any superstitions or routines?
Maybe he just feels he’s been burned by the media before, so why bother? The Oilers writers say he was standoffish at the start of his tenure there, but he slowly but surely got better and became very cooperative.
Great line from Bryzgalov today: "They ship me like Fed-Ex box around the country." #Wild
