Mik. Brodeur and Luongo are going to be in the playoffs while the world championships are going on so Roloson is the next best choice.

Leafs 4 Playoffs!!

What if the US was to name their team for the 2010 games, they would all still be in the NCAA or CHL...Come on MIK...

They would not...Drury, Blake, Guerin, Chelios, Modano, Schneider, Cole, Rafalski, Gomez, Miller, DiPietro....
Besides, I was only picking on Roli because I thought they picked him for the Olympics and not the World Champs. For the WC he's a good choice since everyone else who's good will be in the playoffs. (Plus, all those kids on the Lake Placid team were in the NCAA )

I dunno if this was a good call, Alex Auld I think would have been a better choice.

Viktor Kozlov is also my hero!!!

Well, I guess Canada won't be winning the WC's this year. It doesn't matter though as the tourney is meaningless to the NA hockey fan base.

Roloson is a good goalie but why him? They had plenty of choices, lots of goalies better then Roloson.

Cam Ward
Ed Belfour
Andrew Raycroft
Sean Burke

And more...

~Crosby is #1~

Roloson is a great choise. He played great this year on a very bad Edmonton team. He had no D. At least in this tourny he will have a good team in front of him. If it wern't for Roli, Edmonton would have done a lot worse than they did. Good choise Hockey Canada.

You have made a very good point, the goalies should be: Raycroft
Ward
Auld

Cam Ward would have been fine, but Roloson is pretty good, the best statistically available by a stretch.

Auld? ... He didn't play well at all in Florida, 88.8 SV% is wretched. He took a huge step backwards playing in Florida, his 90.2 last year was reasonable. This guy will be lucky to be playing in the NHL in two years, no way will he be backstopping for team Canada.

Belfour? Well he at least had a tolerable year at 90.2%. But with his recent fisticuffs with a cop, i don't imagine the team will want that sort of distraction, assuming he is even allowed to leave the country.

Even though Edmonton collapsed, Rolli put up the numbers. At 90.9%, on a team playing a bunch of young Dmen, and with no will to win, he still makes the top 20 in the league. And the best canadian goalie not in the playoffs, excepting perhaps Cam Ward. And Ward had a dismal season, posting only 89.7%.

True, but what other goalie has experience there?

I've figured it out, the guys gotta play like girls!

So you think it is better to play a goalie that has proven to be horrible at all venues, than one that has done well in the best league in the world, but hasn't played in this particular tournament?

Seem to remember Rolly being tolerable in the playoffs last year.... o right, he mae it to the final round of the biggest tournament in sports, with a sparkling 92.7 SV%.

I cannot honestly believe you would throw out a name like Auld in comparison.

They can take plenty more goalies though,

The Penguins, and Wild are about to be eliminated so that means that Fleury and Fernandez will be available.

Im really surprised with Dallas soon to be out of the playoffs no one would mention the name Marty Turco as a starting goalie he is one of the best goalies in the league, agree?

Okay, either someone already erased what you were referring to, or else you're replying to a post from 2007? The last post before yours is dated 04/19/2007? Did something get deleted that you responded to? Or were you perusing some really old threads?

Someone erased the weird spam (thanks admin), but can you please erase my notes, including this one. And can you send this topic back to 2007?

And at the same time, can you please restore my current investments to 2007 levels? :)
