07:07 AM ET 04.23 | There aren't many playoff streaks more impressive than the one in Philadelphia, though missing the second season for the second time in 18 seasons may not lead to significant change -- even after Steve Mason was added as depth behind Ilya Bryzgalov. The point, [Paul Holmgren] said, is to protect Bryzgalov next season so he doesn't have to play too many games. "Ilya played a lot of games this year, but he's not going to play 82 games next season," Holmgren said. "You need a guy that can go in. Steve's a young guy still, he's had some success at an early age in our league." ... To be clear, I asked Holmgren if there was any basis at all to the speculation of a Bryzgalov buyout. "No," he said.

It's an idea. Could work.

Hey Homer, if you buy him out he won't have to play any.

Wonder if the near similarity between the two has been discussed by Cubs fans over a pint or ten...

The bigger question is: Will Bryz commit to Holmgren? I think he wants out. He's had enough.
