HNICBryzgalovPhiladelphiaBuyout

How much could you buy with Bryzgalov’s Flyers salary?

Kudos to Hockey Night in Canada for this bit of snark during their featured broadcast of the Philadelphia Flyers and Edmonton Oilers Saturday night. Ilya Bryzgalov's contract with the Flyers was big. Humangous big. But just how much are the Flyers picking up in their buyout of him? Lots. Lots of Barenaked Ladies downloads:

But seriously, who needs 913 Rolexes, anyway? Then again, who needs to pay someone who isn't on your team anymore $25 million dollars? Sounds like an awfully expensive way to fix a problem.
