First the flyers can't buy-out Bryz until June.
Second, they need 23 million dollars to buy him out. I believed the cap hit for Bryz for the rest of his contract is about the same as Luongo's. So they may get a slightly better goalie, but the cap hit will be the same (or am I correct on this? and you mentioned "split" with Vancouver, I am not sure how it works) , plus 23 million dollars going into...... the toilet?
I am a Luongo fan, but I think his critics are justified. If he didn't completely bombed that few playoff games in front of everyone's eyes, I think we are talking about moving Schneider instead of him.
I just don't see how it better Ed Snider's chance of winning the cup with him.

not to mention its a city thats used to thowing goalies under the bus after the playoffs and luongo is used to that so its kinda win win
