You're certainly entitled to your opinion sir.

I don't like our odds there, and I haven't forgotten what we did to Boston.
2. Say we win tomorrow without Bryz, what does it do going forward for his confidence if he gets outplayed by a backup to end the series?
That's how I look at the situation. If he plays and plays well, your criticism of me was justified. If he doesn't play, well, this wasn't an overreaction.
Time will tell. Keeping my fingers crossed that he left practice of his own volition because he / the coaching staff felt 10 minutes was enough.
