    Leland Irving or Carey Price?

    I'm not asking who will be the better NHL goalie or anything like that, just simply..who will be the #1 for Canada in the WJC?

    Voted Irving by accident. I think it's Price until/if he ****s up.

    I think it will be Price, but I think it should be Irving. This is nothing against Price, I just feel Irving is better.

    It's Price's spot to lose, if he can't show he's good enough, Irving will get the games.

    this is now the 3rd consecutive year that the QMJHL does not have a goalie on the canadian roster. it used to be that the starter (and sometimes even the backup) was always from the Q. the west is really cacthing up to quebec as the goalie factory of canada.

    i agree with the person who said its prices job to lose. IMHO he is the better of the two, as long as he doesn't "F" it up.

    Voted Price, but IMO both goalies should get a chance to play in the exhibition games and the preliminary round games. Who ever plays better in those games should be the starter in the medal round games.

    Price has it right now. I think at this point Irving is the better keeper but Price gets the edge not only for his performance in camp but also because he has by far the tougher situation and faces many more shots than Irving does in the WHL.

    I think that right now Price has the edge but at the same time it's far from a for sure spot, Irving will definetly get a game or 2 to prove himself. But Boxing day vs. Sweden I think Price will be in goal.

    I chose Irving cause I'm a Flames fan. LOL

    But the truth is Price will be the starter but if/when he $hits the bed, Leland will get his shot

    Price is obviously going to take the vote seeing as how Montreal has the largest fanbase on this board. Silly question to pose to HF.

    I think,Price is going to be a starter in the first game, but each of keepers will play 2 games in the preliminary round. That who will play better will get #1 in the play-off.
