    Tokarski was nothing special. Mind you, much better than Roy. A lot of people seem to remember his save, and that's it. Pogge was awesome though.

    Tokarski? People remember one orgasmic (Pierre :shakehead) save of his, but he was far from being one of our best-ever.

    Worst: Fleury, the golden mistake

    Or

    Jake Allen

    Fleurys made up for it with a stanley cup win.

    Marc Denis(1997) or Manny Legace(1993) for me.

    Both had outstanding tournaments, the best Canadian goaltending I've ever seen in the WJHC.

    Edit: Reading the other answers make me quite old. Looks like some people are either very young or just started watching hockey in the last 4-5 years.

    Tokarski was garbage until the Gold Medal Game. Crap against the US (except one save) and garbage against Russia. He is bordering on worst 5.

    Also terrible - Pascal Leclaire (decent numbers, but not good in a couple of big games in 2002), Trevor Kidd (1992), Jake Allen (2010).

    Best - Manny Legace, Jimmy Waite, Stephane Fiset, Trevor Kidd (1991), Marc Denis, Carey Price, Justin Pogge.

    Underrated - Maxime Ouellet. Played decent on two undermanned teams that won bronze. Some bad goals, but did good on teams that didn't score enough (2000-2001).

    Roberto Luongo was great, albeit in a losing effort.

    I know for me, I've been actively following NHL hockey since the late 90s, but I personally didn't watch a international game with interest till the 2006 Olympics, and the WJC after the Toews shootout performance.

    So I can't comment on anything before that.

    In 1999 - yes.

    In 1998 - He and Mathieu Garon combined to maybe give the worst tandem performance for Canada ever.

    After a bit of checking because that sounded very perculiar to me, they didn't lose to the Kazakhs, but they finished below them.

    Best: Legace, Denis, Price.

    Worst: Allen, Roy

    The worst goalies are from the last two tourneys. Hopefully not a trend.

    Really though. The goaltending performances for Canada were generally much better in the 90s, although Price was great a few years ago. I would go with Legace as the best.

    Yes they did. 6-3 in a 7/8th place game.

    FTR - Bounced back the next year to get to the Gold Medal game, beating Kazakhstan 12-1 in the QF. Just an abberation year, after losing the QF to the Russians after hitting a goalpost, they lost a placement game to the US, and then to the Kazakhs in the 7-8 game.

    Was at the 2006 WJHC and Pogge was very good indeed.

    Not many worse than Mathieu Chouinard in my opinion. I think he is the worst I've seen.

    Had David Leneveu played more he would have stood out as terrible in 2002 - beat out Cam Ward. Olivier Michaud and Jeff Glass are also non descript guys. Glass was a starter on a team that was better than everyone by a mile.

    Leclaire and Garon were less than stellar.


    Waite's performance in Russia and even Fiset's performance in a losing cause in Alaska, were elite performances.

    Pogge was top notch. Luongo's performance in Winnipeg ranks up there and Fleury in Halifax gave that team a chance when they had no business competing with the Russians.
