The Future Of Ilya Bryzgalov Is In Doubt

from Lance Pugmire of the LA Times,

The deteriorating experiment with veteran goalie Ilya Bryzgalov reached a new low Sunday when the Ducks placed him on waivers.

Other NHL teams are free to claim Bryzgalov through Monday at 9 a.m. If he goes unclaimed, the Ducks and the goalie will determine his future, which could result in a demotion to minor-league Norfolk or the outside possibility of retirement.

The Ducks owe Bryzgalov an estimated $1.9 million this season, and team officials privately have said the veteran could still be used later given his experience and the fact the team used three goalies last postseason.
