Friday roundup

First, there was this from Flyers GM Paul Holmgren: “Spent the day getting to know Ilya and Jeniya. There will be no comment on discussions that are ongoing.”

Then, there was Peter Laviolette personally chauffering his presumed netminder around town.

Now, this: Ilya Bryzgalov left town and a deal was not signed.

Well…there’s always next week’s draft…

In other non-local, non-garment-rending news:

The Minnesota Wild have a new head coach. Good luck with that.

And the Dallas Stars begin a new era where they can’t admit they’re rebuilding with a new bench boss. $50 if you can say his name five times fast.

The new Winnipeg team has no name, no jerseys, no public face. But they might have a bit of continuity with their old location.
