    Kiprusoff will likely be the starter for Finland. Brodeur is the likely starter for Canada. Vokoun is the likely starter for the Czech Republic. Kölzig is a lock to start for Germany.

    It really is too early to tell for the other nations.

    I'm pretty sure Esche will be the starter for Team USA.

    That's surprising. I would think it'd be Conklin after his good showing in the exhibition games and the recent World Championships.

    Conklin hasn't played that great in the exhibition games, especially compared to the other two goalies.

    IMHO.. I'd start Lehtonen over Kiprusoff. Call it a hunch.

    if you had seen the clinic that esche put on in the USA\Russia game, you wouldn't say so.

    and EHC...conklin is the only US goalie to have even given up a goal..and he gave up some bad ones. Esche and DiPietro are pretty much a lock to be 1-2. Both have been impressive.

    Lehtonen is too young for this kind of pressure IMO. They'd get creamed with him in nets. Call it a hunch.
