Having a beer with Bryz is off my bucketlist now


<span style="font-style: italic">Ilya Bryzgalov praises Joseph Stalin, wants to ask Einstein about the universe

By Dmitry Chesnokov



Getty ImagesJust when you think Philadelphia Flyers goalie Ilya Bryzgalov couldn’t get more, uh, interesting, he speaks about the virtues of Cold War leader and socialist icon Joseph Stalin while wondering what kind of conversation he’d have with Albert Einstein.

From a much longer interview here with journalist Maria Rogovskaya that can be found here (ED NOTE: Since removed), Byrzgalov said:

Q. All journalists try to interview you. And is there a person who you would like to talk to?


“A lot of them are not alive anymore… I would love to talk to Genghis Khan, Stalin, Einstein.”

Stalin is a very controversial figure. How do you feel about him?


“Positive. I see logic in his action. Not without going too far, of course. But he came to power in a country that had just lived through a revolution. There were so many spies, enemies, traitors there. A lot of people still had guns after the civil war. The country was in ruins, [people] needed to survive somehow. The country needed to be rebuilt, and in order to do that it needed to be held in iron hands. Then WWII began. A lot of people came back from that war with guns as well. There was devastation all around, the country had to be rebuilt, had to be able to defend itself. There were so many criminals.”

Stalin took Russia in with a wooden plow and left it with nuclear weapons.


“Yes, he knew what he was doing. He is described as a ‘bloody tyrant.’ But at the time it couldn’t be any other way. Yes, there were innocent people who were victims of repressions… But it happens. Not long ago in the US a person was released from prison, who spent 45 years there. It turned out he was innocent. Can you imagine, a person spent his entire life in jail for something he didn’t do.”

And what would you ask Einstein?


“About her, of course…”

The Universe?


“Yes. He is an interesting person. Surely he had a lot of ideas and theories.”

He certainly did. As does a certain Flyers goaltender, to be sure.</span>

I don't have ducks. I don't have rows. I have squirrels. And they're drunk.

Re: No more

Most NHL goaltenders are headcases as it is....this guy is leaps and bounds the nuttiest though. Tim Thomas is up there, but still doesn't hold a candle to Bryz!

You really under estimated the ramifications of the boondoggle you have just perpetrated!
