A day after the Flyers announced that they are buying out the remaining seven years of goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov's contract, Chairman Ed Snider gave a brief statement about the Flyers uses of the amnesty exception.
"I fully support Paul Holmgren in his decision to use our final compliance buyout for Ilya Bryzgalov," Snider said. "It was a very difficult decision from a financial standpoint, but if Bryz remained a Flyer, the dollars would be far greater in a shorter time frame. We now have cap space, which will allow us to improve our team.
"In the meantime, Bryz can try to find a situation where he can achieve true happiness."
Snider's response came on the heels of a statement from Bryzgalov released by the goaltender's agent Ritch Winter Wednesday morning.
