Interesting read for sure. I'm thinking he realizes they're running with Mason next season.

UNIONDALE, N.Y. — Resting at his locker following a Flyers morning skate that would lead into a rare game night off, Ilya Bryzgalov turned a reporter joke tossed his way into one of his entertaining sideshows.
With Steve Mason starting in goal Tuesday night for the Flyers, Bryzgalov was asked if he’d enjoy his off day by heading to Jones Beach, a popular Long Island vacation spot that is just 20 miles from Nassau Coliseum.
The Russian goalie sat up straighter on his stool and went into a short sermon on nearby beaches.
“You can call it whatever you want, but it’s not a beach,” Bryzgalov said. “A beach is somewhere in the Caribbean, somewhere in Florida where it’s warm and you can swim. Here is dark water.”
Reporters laughed as Bryzgalov talked with a twinkle in his eye and a half smile on his face, then most walked away because head coach Peter Laviolette was ready to do his morning interview.
Bryzgalov continued talking with the Courier-Post about being rested for the first time in 23 games and third time in 39 Flyers games this season, about his career-worst statistics ... and that potential offseason issue that has divided the franchise’s fan base—the amnesty buyout.
Bryzgalov is just finishing the second season of his nine-year, $51 million contract, but could become a free agent after this season or next due to a clause in the league’s new collective bargaining agreement allowing franchises to buy out two players for two-thirds of the remaining contract. He’s a candidate, first and foremost, because the Flyers could have trouble next season getting under the salary cap, which is dropping from $70.2 million this season to $64.3 million in 2013-14.
His thoughts?
“To be honest, I don’t care,” he said. “Really, I don’t care. I have no control on this, so why should I care?”
Bryzgalov was asked if he’d like to be a Flyer next season.
“You know, I have no control in this,” he said. “I can’t read the people’s mind. I can’t project things what they’re thinking, that’s why I’m not worried about things I can’t control. I maybe want one thing and they want a different thing.”

This is positive news.

There's no way they're running with Mason next season.

They'll get in line for Lui...and hopefully Holmgren does what he usually does and goes all in. None of this dickin around we saw with Nonis recently.

No one wants lou. or his contract or his sub par stats. Philly does not need another gross over payment.

His only way out is a buy-out, and I highly doubt the Flyers will pay that massive sum. I can't see any team trading for Bryz's contract, when Luongo's is far more reasonable (in terms of cap hit, and declining salary), yet he can't be moved.

tampa was a terrible team all around when smith was there smith was a pretty good goalie in dallas if you dont remember those days. i dont think goalies strive in a system of 30+ shots every night with no goal support haha

Just a hypothetical question, if the Flyers offer us Bryzgalov + one of their top young player (Schenn, Coutourier, or top pick) for Luongo should Gillis make the deal and then buy out Bryzgalov?

With comments like that you'd think they would want a guy like Lou who wants to play more than anything.

Side note: Apparently benched for falling asleep in a team meeting.... In his defense I can't say I haven't done that before.

It'd have to be more than just one piece to get us to buyout Bryz. You can't forget they are getting a very capable goalie in Luongo back still, and a Bryz buyout would be negative value. They might not agree, but I'd be asking for Couturier, 1st and a prospect (maybe Oliver Lauridsen?).

With comments like that you'd think they would want a guy like Lou who wants to play more than anything.

Side note: Apparently benched for falling asleep in a team meeting.... In his defense I can't say I haven't done that before.

That was actually debunked, but the way he phrased his answer wasn't that encouraging that he'd want to stay.

He said he doesn't care about the rumours of the compliance buyout, and not that he doesn't care if he's a Flyer any more. Something got lost in translation from the article to the OP.

Mike Smith was also in Dallas when Tippett was coaching there. Now who's his coach in Phoenix... Oh wait, it's Dave Tippett!

LOLLLLLLLL. Luongo is still one of the best in the league. Despite your personal feelings on this you are completely uneducated if you think otherwise. He still has a LOT left to give in the League.

Smith to NYI
Bryz back to Phoenix
Lu to Philly, send him to a place where the backup is definitely less skilled. No questions about it.

We won't be getting much from Philly, but as long as the trade is to the East were Luongo can haunt the Leafs, that's all I care about.
