Ilya Bryzgalov may not wish what he went through this season on his worst enemy, but he might be able to take some solace in the fact that the Flyers are confident he'll have a much easier time next year.

To say Bryzgalov struggled to adjust to Philadelphia and to the Flyers after four seasons in Phoenix wouldn't even begin to explain the wild ride of a season the goaltender had. But Jaromir Jagr, who's seen it all in his 19 years in the NHL, can sympathize.

"Any time you change a team and sign a big contract, it is not easy for anyone," Jagr said. "It doesn't matter what kind of player you are or how strong you are. It is tough. It is not easy and I know he is going to be a lot better next year."
