most underrated goalie in the NHL? Wow, did the Yotes do well after losing Bryzgalov. I feel bad for Bryz though. What a tough season he is having with the flyers.

"Der Schmied" has been EXCELLENT for the Coyotes BUT I think a lot has to do with their DEFENSE. Dave Tippett's D better than the Bugs and the Flyers D obviously STINKS.

Definately has a lot to do with Phoenix D. Smith and Bryz both play amazing in PHX and play like garbage elsewhere (tampa, philly). Both those teams have atrocious defenses but those goalies have let in a lot of atrocious goals too playing for them

Mike Smith was horrid in Tampa Bay, don't know what to think of why he is so good in Phoenix, and not sure what to make of the Yotes defence allowing 35-40+ shots on net every time he starts.

well maybe I was incorrect abut "Tippett's defense" with the Coyotes giving up 38, 44 and 54 SOG's their last three. what's really impressive about "Der Schmied" is the Ducks had 6 PP's in their game and the BJ's 7 last night and he gives them NOTHING.

and btw, the BJ's new kid York only gives up 2 GA's again last night on 22 shots. don't know IF he's "the future" for the BJ's vs Sanford and Mason BUT he's looking good so far.

Lizard feelings towards the Flyers (from a Rangers fan)...

Wonder how he would be playing for the Leafs, Heck he couldn't be any worse than what they have now, or could he?
