Put those fears to rest. The Flyers announced, via their website, that they will be using their second compliance buyout on Bryzgalov. General manager Paul Holmgren released a statement,
“I met with Ilya this morning and informed him that we are going to exercise a compliance buy out of his contract. This was a very difficult business decision to make for us and we want to thank Ilya for his time here and wish him all the best moving forward.”
Courier-Times Flyers beat writer Randy Miller, who has been a staunch Bryzgalov defender since his arrival in 2011, has some pretty telling things to say about the goaltender after he hung up on him. Check out his Twitter feed for some juicy stories.
The Flyers have now used both of their compliance buyouts - the first one was used on Danny Briere.
