Kiprusoff or Sakic,
depending on which of the two teams wins it all.
Dont count out the possibility of Esche. And if Modin keeps it up somehow thats a darkhorse possibility.
Yeah I think so too.
I think Sakic has been teh best player for Team Canada so far in this tournament, and has been consistently the best player out on the ice. He gets my vote. Sundin could also be considered.
While I think its possible that he could wind up being the MVP. I dont think Canada has even needed him to be MVP caliber thus far. He has been good on the rare occasion he has been tested, but that hasnt been often. And he did give up as bad a goal as I have seen him let in last night on Gonchar.
I'd say Kip-ru-Sieve or Brodeur.
One of them might get it, but I don't see how any of them could actually deserve it. Canada is stacked.
Look at the stats for both goalies in this tournament
PLAYER TEAM GP GA SA GAA SV SV% SO TOI PIM
MIIKKA KIPRUSOFFFINLAND 3 4 71 1.30 67 .944 2 185:00 2
MARTIN BRODEUR CANADA 3 3 77 1.00 74 .961 0 180:00 0
Also remember NONE of those stats count come tomorrow....THAT'S when the tournament begins....
How can people even begin to say who the MVP is going to be? The real hockey hasn't even started yet :lol
Esche, HAHAHAH are you kidding. The MVP will come from the winning nation and you know that the American babyless Hull won't win. They all may end up in the hospital with a heart attack.
I was talking about Canada, not Broduer or Kiprusoff.
Joe Torre said something along the lines of "Lets hope we got the bad one out of the way" yesterday. Course, that was about Mariano Rivera, but you get my drift.
I honestly agree with you and dont think that the US is gonna win the tournament. Not because they're an inferior team. They just havent, as a team, played with enough heart. However, if they do win, it will be because of Esche. In which case, he would most certainly be the MVP. Hell, even if the US makes the finals I think he is the MVP. Remember JS Giguere?
"Kiprusoff or Sakic, depending on which of the two teams wins it all."
It is a prediction. Of course the most important games of the tourney have yet to be played.
Who do you think will be the difference?
I mean I wish he was there
I'm going with the 2002 Olympic MVP.
Me too, as stated before. But I give an outside chance to Kiprusoff if Finland wins.
Wayne should win it.
We can only speculate MVP so far.
USA - Chris Chelios or Robert Esche
Canada - Martin Brodeur
Finland - Miikka Kiprusoff
Czech Republic - I don't know - Elias? Vokoun? Zidlicky?
