07:17 AM ET 04.29 | Ilya Bryzgalov often spins media gold, and while he took more than his share of shots at the folks who cover the team, he also gave them more material. Q: Does the blame bother you? "Not anymore. Not anymore. You guys just here to blame someone. You never look yourselves in the mirror, eh? You're always good. You never make the mistakes. Your articles are always perfect. In reality, what have you done for this city? If you ask yourself, what have you done besides only criticize? Not much." ... Q: Was the media coverage unfair? "It's not like fair or unfair. We already had the conversation. It's just ridiculous. Just ridiculous. Sometimes you???re reading and it's like, 'Oh my God, who is this lunatic?'"

Bryz must REALLY want out of Philly; the Blue Jackets proved that a Philly has been can work out pretty well.

Is it defamation when it's the truth?

he may have gone to the John Tortarella School of Media relations...but to be fair, he really isn't far off in his assesment of a lot of these guys.
Larry brooks....ANYONE from ESPN...they're hacks trying to bolster their own images

Nope. He is a wing nut , but he does have a point.

I think he is begging to be let go, but it seems like Holmgren may not grant his wish ( although he should)

I would venture a guess as to Holmgren not being the one to make that decision

Was he referring to himself or the sport writer?

This kind of thing doesn't happen very often in Pittsburgh. Do other cities have sports writers and jocks have at each others throats all the time like they do in Phily?

Don't be weak Spiny. Bryz is absolutely right about the Philly press (from what I've seen, heard and read). Yes, he stunk it up at times but it's hockey not brain surgery on your kids! BTW, I don't want to pick on Philly..............many cities have a press corps covering their hockey team which might be a tad whacky. NY, Toronto, Montreal come to mind. Pick your own.

BTW Spiny, we meet. Again. I just want you to know that I wish the Rangers bad luck, soft ice, a crummy press and power failures back home. And I mean that in the nicest way. Am I confident? Of course not.

The Beeep, Beeep, Beeep sound you heard was the Bruins backing into the playoffs.....
