Edmonton, Do You Want Bryzgalov In Your Net?

from Gord Stellick of Sportsnet,

If you were the Edmonton Oilers, wouldn’t you take a flyer on 33-year-old Ilya Bryzgalov?! Seriously, I can’t believe the number of my colleagues in the media who believe the Oilers  should stay away at all cost. What can the Oilers possibly have to lose, especially if they can get Bryzgalov at a bargain rate on a one-year deal? Whatever distractions the eccentric Russian might create off the ice are easily outweighed by the substandard goaltending (and I’m being kind here) the Oilers are currently getting on the ice.

I think you do whatever you can to plug a goaltending problem, especially with a young and seemingly talented NHL team emerging. Don’t think it’s worth it? Witness what happened with the Columbus Blue Jackets last year when they traded for Flyers’ castoff Sergei Bobrovsky.
