Flyers, Ilya Bryzgalov's agent talk
PHILADELPHIA -- The Flyers have met with the agent for goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov, and will do so again, but no deal is in place yet.
The Flyers last week acquired the rights to Bryzgalov in a deal with the Phoenix Coyotes.
Philadelphia shipped over a 2012 third-round draft pick, forward Matt Clackson and future considerations.
"We have spoken with Ilya and his agent Ritch Winter about many different scenarios," Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren said. "As for now, we both know each other's position and have agreed to speak again next week. There will be no further comment at this time."
Bryzgalov, 30, was a Vezina Trophy finalist in 2009-10, and went 36-20-10 with a 2.48 goals-against average and seven shutouts last season. He would cure a shaky goalie situation that likely cost the Flyers a lengthy playoff run this spring.
After surviving a seven-game series vs. Buffalo in Round 1, the Flyers were swept in the second round by eventual Stanley Cup champion Boston Bruins.
