Bryzgalov Revisited

A couple of weeks ago I promoted a great diary entry that advocated the trade of Avalanche goalie Peter Budaj for Ducks backup Ilya Bryzgalov.  While I didn't agree with the trade idea, the post was very well done.

Well, I think I might be coming around.

The reason?  Ilya Bryzgalov is funny as hell.  For example, consider this interview in which he jokes about Edmonton's climate (in response to a question about why Chris Pronger sought a move to Anaheim) while speaking in a voice that can only be considered Mickey Mouse-like.

Bryzgalov is hilarious to listen to in much the same way as Ichiro.  Sometimes English is funniest when spoken by capable but non-native speakers, especially the Russians and the Japanese.  Nobody butchers the language like they do.  And nobody comes across as profound as they do when saying completely mundane things.

Ian Laperriere is a funny guy, but Bryzgalov takes the cake.  Sign him up!

(Thanks to Mirtle at the Fanhouse for the clip.)
