Pronger On Bryzgalov

from Chuck Gormley of Flyer Files,

Is he among the elite goaltenders in your opinion?

Well, I think if yiou look at his play over the last three years you pretty much have to put him there. I don’t know. Who do you consider the elite goalies in the league?

Well, I think a lot of people will say Ryan Miller, Henrik Lundqvist, Tim Thomas. Is he in that category?

You probably have Miller, Lundqvist, Kiprusoff. Bryz, I would have to say, has done as much as those guys. If you want to start compare stats, I’m sure he compares quite well against all those guys.

Long before you got here I’m sure you heard about the Flyers’ need for a goaltender. Do you think this will finally silence those questions?

I don’t think it’s ever going to be silenced until we win a Stanley Cup. (Laughter) You laugh, but that’s what it’s going to take. It doesn’t matter if the guy goes out and wins the Vezina Trophy. If he doesn’t help the team win the Stanley Cup – at the end of the day that’s what we’re all graded on….

more plus a smaill update on Pronger’s health…
