Bryzgalov Talks

Terry Jones of the Edmonton Sun spoke with Ilya Bryzgalov...

Bryzgalov said it’s been a time to be introspective.

“You do more learning from the tough times you’ve been through. When times are difficult it forces you to think and do things you’ve never done. I learned a lot from these two years in Philly.”

So what happened in Philadelphia?

“I just can tell you when the time right. I will write the book. You can read it then.”

With a 208-149-45 record, a 2.55 goals against average and a .918 save percentage, there’s nothing wrong with the career statistics of the 33-year-old 6’3” native of Togliatti, Russia.

But his disruptive image reputation and baggage from his two years in Philadelphia alone, kept everybody else in the league away from him except the clearly desperate MacTavish.

“I am looking forward to showing people about me. At the end of the year maybe you will make a statement about me.”
