Report: Ilya Bryzgalov Will Play in Russia During Lockout

In Soviet Russia… goaltender play there! 

OK, maybe that made too much sense. But it looks like Ilya Bryzgalov will be taking his talents back home to Russia until the lockout is over.

Per David Pagnotta, of The Fourth Period magazine, Bryz will join Pavel Datsyuk on CSKA. And oh, hey, small world– CSKA is the team formerly known as the Red Army Team, who the Flyers famously beat back in 1976 while the team was on a tour of the states.

Somewhere, Ed Snider just pooped himself thinking about his prized Russian goalie playing for, well, the hated Russians. Full fucking circle, it would seem.

  1. I seriously hope after the lockout his deal gets massively restructured and brought down to earth.

  2. good for him –
    F the NHL –
    we know how the season is going to end anyway
    same as it has for 37 years

  3. HOCKEY teams from Anaheim, Carolina, and Tampa have 1 more Stanley Cup than Phila aka Hockey Town in 37 years. PATHETIC.

  4. It’s not hating – it’s called stating the brutal honest facts, Shane-O! “Stop Hating” is just a term that people who don’t really have much else to say use.
