Oh Ilya, you think you speak a language that no one understands...but I do, see, I'm Russian, just like you.
So with that, I'm gonna share with the world, the ability to understand Bryzgalov using quotes from his interview found here at BSH.
Quote: "I am excited to join a great organization with a rich history. That was my first reaction and I expect a lot from our work together."
Meaning: "I am excited to join a rich organization with a great history of overpaying players. My first reacion was $$$$$$$$ and I expect a big bank account, small island and possibly my own rocketship from our work together."
Quote: "First of all, when I came to Philadelphia, I met Mr. [Ed] Snider, Paul Holmgren and other people in the organization. We talked to each other and they told me the philosophy of the team. I like the philosophy of the team - winning, and everything in Philadelphia. I like this philosophy and it's my philosophy too.... This is a good spot for me because I like the idea and philosophy of the team."
Meaning: MONEY, they're giving me MONEY! MONEY MONEY OH MY GOD I HAVE MORE MONEY THAN DAN ELLIS!
Quote: "Not yet, not yet. He is a great guy. He's a good person and a big physical defenseman who can score, who can move the puck. He has everything that a number one defenseman needs. He's got size, he's got skill, he has character." (He's referring to Christopher Robert Pronger)
Meaning: OH GOD! Pronger's elbows scare me!
Quote: "Under NHL rules you can be traded any day and management made decisions to make some adjustments and we just have to accept it and play it."
Meaning: I know that I'm gone after 4 or 5 years. But I'm gonna be rich!
