    Wow for once Eklund is right on something, congrats Eklund, you must be mighty proud of yourself.

    According to, it's a 3 year deal worth 12.75M$… something around 4.25M$/year for Bryzgalov. I think it's maybe a little high, but Bryzgalov has really turned the Coyotes around this year. He had to stay.

    Well it's not like he single handedly turned this team around or anything.  Why give him what he deserves.

    Seriously, this is a great move.  Maloney realized his importance to the team and took care of that impending UFA status rather quickly.  Glad I don't need to worry about my teams goaltending for at least a few more seasons.

    Still would have liked to have Stamkos or Tavares…

    Good for Bryz.  Hated him as a Duck, still hate him as a Coyote but he's proven that he can be a difference maker on any team.

    This was a no-brainer.  He gives Phoenix solid goaltending and the most confidence they've had since Sean Burke went on a tear just after the turn of the century.  Phoenix is a team on the rise, and with a lot of young talent on the team and yet to come up, they will only get better.

    Eklund stole it after it had already been leaked!

    This is an excellent signing by the Yotes. Not too long either in case he bombs in the future. See Dan Cloutier. haha

    Coyotes will never make the playoffs with this guy starting for the next 3 years. They don't really have another option thou i guess

    I love the way this team was going with their defence: Jovo, Morris, Ballard, Boynton and Michalek with young Keith Yandle and Jones to play small minutes. Sign a veteran D in the off season.

    Forwards with Doan, Hanzal, Mueller, Carcillo they would just need to add a few more solid forwards….

    Regardless im still not buying Bryzgalov as the man of any team
