TIMELINE: Holmgren Statement on Bryzgalov
JUNE 22

Amidst the several reports on the negotiations with the Flyers and goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov today, the following statement was made from Flyers GM Paul Holmgren:

"We are continuing to try and reach an agreement with Ilya, but it is safe to say that we are not close to achieving this.”


JUNE 20

Flyers GM Paul Holmgren briefly discussed the on-going negotiations with soon-to-be free agent goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov today in his Pre-NHL Draft conference call with reporters.

Q: The impression from the other people around the league is that you do have to move cap space to be able to re-sign [Ilya] Bryzgalov and [Ville] Leino. So you’re saying that you don’t have to?
 
“We’ll see how it goes. There are things that we want to accomplish as we get closer to training camp, but that’s a long time from now. There is no fire sale going on here. We are going to continue to try and sign Ilya [Bryzgalov], obviously, and continue to try and sign Ville [Leino], then we will see. It’s not like we are caught between a rock and a hard place right now.
 
Q: Could you have a deal for Bryzgalov by the end of the week?
 
“I guess we could. Right now we are going to talk again tomorrow. Like I said, on Friday, we know where they’re at and what they want to accomplish. I think they know where we’re at. Obviously to make a deal, there is going to have to be some sort of a compromise. It might take some time and we are going to keep looking at it.”
 
Q: Is the compromise in years rather than dollars or is it both?
 
“I would say it’s both right now.”
 
Q: Would you like to have the [Ilya] Bryzgalov situation settled by the draft?
 
“Well, we would like that to get resolved at some point. I am not sure it matters prior to the draft; there is still enough time after the draft to get a deal done. The important thing is that there was progress made when Ilya [Bryzgalov] and his agent, Ritch Winter, were in town. I don’t see any reason why that’s not going to continue. I don’t have a crystal ball, so I can’t really give you a definitive answer. There is enough progress, which kind of gives me hope, anyway, that we can make a deal at some point.”


JUNE 17

Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren gave the following statement on Friday regarding discussions with goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov:

“We have spoken with Ilya and his agent Ritch Winter about many different scenarios. As for now, we both know each other’s position and have agreed to speak again next week.”

Holmgren added that there would be no further comment at this time.

Bryzgalov, who will turn 31 on June 22, was acquired by the Flyers on June 7 and will become an unrestricted free agent beginning July 1.
