The trashing and scapegoating of Ilya Bryzgalov over the past year has been carried to such ridiculous proportions that I think a little counterweight is in order to present a more realistic and balanced picture both of his 2011-12 season and prospects moving forward.

So if you haven't read Matt Kalman's post over at CBSBoston.com yet, do so before venturing on. A lot of what I'm going to say is going to be a reflection of that piece. Now, don't get this misconstrued in any way. Days of Y'Orr loves Kalman. We love his snarky attitude on Twitter and we think he's a damn good writer, but we don't agree that Jagr would...

Jimmy Stizzle (judge his validity on your own) reported that the Flyers are trying to send James van Riemsdyk...
Throughout the day and evening today, I will keep a running blog on Flyers-related happenings in and around the 2012 NHL Draft. I'll leave the rumors to Ek but will update and comment if and when something substantive takes place.
The Flyers are always at the center of blockbuster trade rumors at the Draft, and this year is no exception. I'm sure the Rick Nash and Bobby...
