The Flyers have made some major trades in recent years - dealing Jeff Carter, Mike Richards and James van Riemsdyk, among others - but a less talked-about move may come back to haunt them.
When general manager Paul Holmgren sent backup goalie Sergei Bobrovsky to Columbus for three draft picks last June, not many eyebrows were raised. Bobrovsky had seen little time behind Ilya Bryzgalov.

But with the strike-shortened season more than halfway over, Bobrovsky has emerged as the NHL’s hottest goaltender.

On Monday, the 24-year-old Russian was named the league’s top star of the week after going 4-0 with a 0.77 goals-against average and .972 save percentage.

The Flyers received second- (promising goalie Anthony Stolarz) and fourth-round (left winger Taylor Leier) draft selections last June for Bobrovsky. They also acquired a fourth-rounder in the 2013 draft.

Bobrovsky, known for his quick post-to-post moves, has an 8-6-3 record with a 2.27 goals-against average and .919 save percentage.

Bryzgalov, 32, is 12-11-1 with a 2.77 goals-against average and .899 save percentage.

Bobrovsky has stopped five of six shots in shootouts this season, while Bryzgalov has no saves in two shootout attempts.

I have to be inclined to agree with him, though. Bob is doing great.

lol one hot week. If he leads his Jackets to the playoffs then we talk, but now its just rubbish. Remember how hot Justin Shultz was his first 5 games? Yea sure buddies.

 

Well, I , I feel very good about this draft, but I, I think, potentially you know were gonna have 3 or 4 NHL players out of this group, ummmm, you know like we are not going to prejudice to were they are from.

He's doing better than Bryzgalov - which is why this would "haunt them".

Makes up for them getting Couturier and Voracek for Jeff Carter. Though I guess Columbus did get Jack Johnson for Carter, who's going to be great for them.

Anyways...this thread needs more BOBROVSKY!!!

Bob may be doing well now but I'll wait to see what he does in the long term.

Should have went after Vokoun in 2011 instead of handing out Bryz that monster contract. Vokoun would have been a 2-3 year stop gap to help Bobrovski ease into the league/get confidence/mentor/ for whatever the problem was.

Too early to call this a "haunting". Seriously, one hot streak and an article needs to be written? Sports media and fans love to make a big deal out of nothing.

I'm glad he's gone because it's so fun seeing Bryzgalov get scored on. :lol:

So does this mean we feel slightly less bad about our loss to CBJ? He did look more solid than Cory, even if the rest of our team was pretty unfortunate.

they would of if they could of. If Luo is taking a year+ to trade think of how hard it would be to trade Bryzgalov who has a worse contract and worse numbers and has meltdowns

The real problem is giving a goaltender who doesn't seem to care about hockey such a ridiculously long and overpaid contract.

Bobrovsky is great, works real hard to improve his game. As a previous poster said, signing Vokoun and developing Bobrovsky would of been the best thng to do.
