Bryzgalov won’t go to Winnipeg


Heading into free agency Phoenix Coyotes’ goaltender, Ilya Bryzgalov, has  made it clear that he has no interest playing in Winnipeg. After spending four seasons playing in the desert, Bryzgalov is anything but enthusiastic when it comes to the strong possibility of the team relocating back to Canada.  “Not many people live there … not many Russian people there. Plus it’s cold,” said Bryzgalov, who went 36-20-20 this year with a 2.48 GAA. ” There’s no excitement except the hockey. No park … no entertaining for the families …  for the kids. It’s going to be tough life for your family.” Meanwhile, Bryzgalov, who has also played for the Anaheim Ducks, admits that he has only been to Winnipeg once or twice in his life,  but still won’t sign with the club if they relocate to Winnipeg. “I hope teams going to stay,” said Bryzgalov, who struggled with a 4.36 GAA during the Coyotes first round loss to the Detroit Red Wings.  “It’s such a nice area and such nice place to play hockey.” Bryzgalov, who has 156 career wins, isn’t ruling out the possibility of playing in the KHL next season.   —   Comment from Momma Gouche —    Someone wants to tell Bryzgalov that hockey is a winter sport and that he would do well to improve his English in order to bode well in North America. Canada doesn’t need his kind of attitude.
