Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Allan Muir of Sports Illustrated,
There are two numbers that reveal much about the future of Ilya Bryzgalov.
The first is 23, as in the millions of dollars the Philadelphia Flyers are paying him not to play for them.
The second is 0, as in the number of goaltending jobs currently available in the National Hockey League.
Add ‘em up and the sum suggests that we may have seen (and heard) the last of one of hockey’s great characters.
Anything could happen, but the word around the league to Bryzgalov is, well, don’t call us, we’ll call you.
It’s not just that every team has taken down the Help Wanted sign after filling its needs for this season. Fact is, there’s not a lot of interest in Bryzgalov’s services, even at a vastly discounted rate, because teams don’t have a lot of faith in his ability to make them better.
