The Buzz on Bryz...


TSN.ca reports that in a half hour, Ilya Bryzgalov is going on waivers. He carries a manageable contract ($1.0 million this year, $1.363 million next year), is young (27), and has a sturdy record behind Jean -Sebastien Giguere in Anaheim.


If the Caps are going to shake up the team, goaltending hasn't been their problem, but...


edit...the figures in Bryzgalov's contract appear to cover the 2006-2007 and 2007-2008 seasons (the original TSN story indicated otherwise, since corrected), making him a UFA after this year, but...


Thanks to PuckMan93 on The Official for the directions to this story.

I think Johnson is okay but Ilya Bryzgalov is better...I think the Caps should go for it.

I'd be for claiming him and then trading him for, well, something else obviously.

I was suprised that Washington didn't take a flyer on Bryz. Is there somebody better in the pipeline should Kolzig/Johnson not be in the cards for next year?

Another year out of the playoffs will Olie even be around next year?

Inquiring minds want to know.
