Yes, he is eccentric, and yes, he commanded a huge salary in Philly.  But Bryzgalov is a quality goalie who could be a stop-gap for a team in need of a true #1 stopper.  I don’t think he will get as much money as he signed for in Philadelphia, but most would agree that relationship was doomed from the start.  Bryzgalov is most likely destined for the KHL, with not many NHL jobs still open.
