Ilya Bryzgalov is easily one of the most interesting players in the NHL and his discussions about the Universe on HBO’s 24/7 have become legendary; he even unveiled a Star Wars mask this year. Unfortunately for Bryzgalov, his time with the Philadelphia Flyers has been pretty forgettable. His stats have been pretty bad for a guy that signed a 9-year $51 Million deal two years ago.
On Wednesday night during the Flyers game against the Montreal Canadiens, Bryzgalov actually ducked on a shot that was coming at his head. Sure the shot from David Desharnais was deflected, but Bryzgalov is a goalie, it is his job to stop pucks. You have to wonder if his time in Philadelphia is almost up.
