It really wasn’t that long ago that Sergei Bobrovsky was dumped by the Philadelphia Flyers to the Columbus Blue Jackets for a collection of draft picks. Geez, they grow up so fast, don’t they? As we all know, the Flyers ended up buying out Ilya Bryzgalov while Bobrovsky went on to win the Vezina trophy.
