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

  2. 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.
