Ilya Bryzgalov to the ECHL? Get to know the Las Vegas Wranglers

source:  Ilya Bryzgalov hasn’t made it all the way to the Tyson Zone, but there’s very little you wouldn’t believe about his future career prospects if you were only sold a good story.

Bryzgalov was on the receiving end of the largest buyout in NHL history, one that will pay him $1.6 million per year for the next 14 years. So money clearly isn’t the issue.

If this is real, maybe it’s a way keep his skills at least a little sharp while he auditions for NHL teams? Whatever the reason, it’s certainly a strange turn of events.

And as long as we’re here, we might as well learn a little about the Wranglers, who are an independent club and have no official NHL or AHL affiliation. First off, killer logo:

Second, solid jerseys:

Third, absurd Christmas alternate:

Fourth, neat arena:

You know what? Bryz and Vegas were meant for each other. He’s the perfect sideshow.

    He’s obviously going to Vegas to blow that massive pile of cash Mr. Snider just dumped on his pool table.
