    Forgot Theodore for Canada. But Brodeur's gonna be starter, no ifs ands or buts. (Get it, no buts? French for goal? Nevermind :))

    Conklin is the only one who has given up goals in the exhibition games if I'm not mistaken. I thought it would be Esche's job to lose but DiPietro played well in two periods of work yesterday. Conklin played his way out of the position. I miss Mike Richter.

    yeah, conklins goals were all a little sketchy to me. sure, sakic, vinny, and richards are all great shooters, but conklin had a clear view of every shot

    Brodeur, Kipper, Kolzig are locks the rest are hard to predict, some of the countries may go with multiple goalies.

    :banana: Also I have a pair of tickets available for Canada vs. Slovakia face value, email kingivan@hotmail.com. Sec 116 row w. :banana:

    vokoun is locked for the czechs, as well. cechmanek probably saw his last action of the tournament after letting in 4 goals against germany, yesterday.

    I'm about as big a Tommy fan and supporter as there is in this entire world - but trust me, he hasn't recovered.....atleast, not before the season ended atleast, maybe he had some kind of break through in the offseason, lol ?

    If I was Summanen.. I'd use a horses for courses tactic with my keeper.s

    Kipper vs Czechs and when in doubt. Lehtonen in against teams who have never played against him (say Sweden). Toskala in against Germany to make sure he's game ready too, or keep him as a dark horse for the semi-finals..

    Keep the opponent guessing..

    is everything
    Was an article in Expressen today http://expressen.se/expressen/jsp/polopoly.jsp?a=176864

    Tellqvist will be the first choice and Salo backup. Not officially confirmed but "sources within the team" etc. Guess we will see in tonights practice game vs Czechs. The one who starts there will be Swedens starting goalie in WC.
