The Flyers bought out Ilya Bryzgalov's humungous big contract today, after two years of a rocky relationship with Philadelphia fans and media. It took about 20 minutes for Randy Miller, of the South Jersey Courier-Post, to start the smear campaign.

Hey, here's a bunch of stuff I know, and I'll share it now because Bryzgalov hung up on me and I'm mad!

It's all surely true, just as surely as this petty tantrum ought to be a warning sign to every NHL player out there: talk to Randy Miller off the record, and he'll trash you on your way out of town.


The Flyers and the Philadelphia media deserve each other.
