When it comes to characters in hockey, there aren't many more colorful than goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov. From his early days with the Ducks to his well-chronicled and rocky time in Philadelphia, he has always been great for a quote or two. He was definitely the star of the HBO 24/7 series two years ago.

The highs and lows (that came mostly all in Philadelphia) are good enough for a soap opera almost, Still, Bryz isn't quite ready to talk about his time in Philadelphia and what went wrong. You'll recall that he had a monster contract that the Flyers elected to buy out this past summer after just two seasons. The word tumultuous barely does it justice.
