    Last year, Price didn't even made the team. This year, Irving is close to be the starter. Imo, that shows how great Irving is.

    As a Flames fan, I have to say that this is exactly what I was hoping for. Seeing both play at the selection camp, Price seemed to be just a little bit ahead of Irving, and with their respective ages, this comes as no surprise. I hope Price can carry Canada to gold, and Irving can gain experience for (hopefully) starting next year!

    Irving didn't look so great against Sweden. He might have presented the worst rebound control possible, as a Swede shot went right into his glove and popped out. This lead to a Swede goal.

    I'm glad they named the starter, I don't like having the goalie situation up in the air.

    TSN is broadcasting them via broadband on their site. Im not sure if its only for Canadians or even for other people than Canadians.

    Edit: Just saw the other thread (and read your comments on that). For those interested, I can watch everything on TSN's broadband site and Im from Slovakia. Im not sure how it will work with the games.

    Good for Price. I had more or less written him off as a non factor on this team but beating out Bernier is no small feat. I wish him luck.

    I agree, although it shouldn't come as a shock to anyone that Price got the nod. He's older, has more experience internationally and from what I've read/seen has been the slightly better of the two in camp/exhibition games.
     
  13. The wrong choice usually presents itself after the game. If Canada loses, wont you look like the idiot? :handclap:

    Last year Sutter just plain didn't like Price's practice regimen. Price was better than Dubnyk, but Sutter perceived Price as having an attitude problem and went with the older guy.

    I like the philosophy of going with an older guy and a guy you think will be in contention for the starter's job the following year like Hartsburgh has done. It's always good having players with some experience if at all possible.

    LOL, you are always good for a laugh just like your truly bizarre opinions on the soccer forums. :biglaugh: Price was always going to make the team. Bernier was fighting with Irving for the other spot on the team all along.

    A shutout for Price in his first game. He was pretty good so I think he will stay the starter for the whole tournement!

    I had written off Price about a year ago, Bernier seemed like the guy that would be the next one for Canada in net. I was not talking about Canada's camp. Bernier dropped off some and Price stepped up over the past year. I am extremely happy to have a poster of your quality to banter with.
