11:09 AM ET 01.07 | Ilya Bryzgalov's pre-Winter Classic press conference, in which he announced he wasn't going to start and then proceeded to have four different scrums with the media, didn't go over well with Flyers brass. Naturally, for the second time this season, the Bryzard of Oz was told to shut his mouth and keep his conversations simple -- not planetary complex. Friday's meeting with the media began on a rough note with Bryz saying it was his "constitutional right" not to talk. Naturally, Bryz caved and chatted, but he is clearly on-guard after what happened Sunday before the Winter Classic.

Lets see a Stanley Cup rematch or a nutty goalie like there hasn't been a ton of those over the years and a team destined for the lottery putting their core players on the market what a surprise .. Hmm we can only choose 2.

LOL - THis guy is awesome. Not doing anything to dispell the notion that Goalies are a little off kilter though..

Honestly it doesn't get much better than this, kids. He can do standup with a gag order. And get away with it as a struggling big $ goaltender in Philly. Amazing. How can he outdo this act?!
