If Not a Goalie, Ilya Bryzgalov Says He Would Have Been an Astronaut

Today, Bryz was interacting with some reporters at the Flyers practice facility in Voorhees, New Jersey when he told them that if he hadn’t become a goalie, he would have been an astronaut. He also had an exchange with a reporter comparing and contrasting the Russian and American space programs and agreed that too many monkeys lost their lives as a result of space travel. Garth Snow was never this interesting. [CSN]
