    Oh gosh no. I did read in the Star today that MRIs came back NEGATIVE (Thank God) and it's nothing more than a deep bruise. I hope he can play...I pray that he can play!!

    Edit: I included the article. I'm not sure if we can post the WHOLE ARTICLE with a link so if not, then a mod please edit it

    Without Brodeur, our confidence will drop a little. I dont think Luongo is ready, he hasnt played enough. Luckily we have the defence to support.
    I cant wait for this F'N game baby!!!

    I think he'll play, but if he doesn't, I'm alright with Luongo or Theodore. :)

    Im allright with those guys too, but I would be a heck of alot more allright if they would have been playing in the last 2 weeks.

    Listened to Pierre McGuire this morning on the radio he said it is nothing, Brodeur will be playing, he mishandled a shot in the second period against the Slovaks, it's only a bruise.

    No worries

    Exactly.The guy would play with a broken leg. He's such a competitor.

    Brodeur is like the Gretzky of goaltenders. He's won it all and there's still a fire in his belly to keep winning. When he retires, he will go down as the best netminder to have ever played the game. And he plays for Canada...extra bonus...

    Fortunately Canada could play any of their goalies and have the best goalie in the tournament, so it's not a huge worry. Besides look what Luongo did at the World Championships two years ago. The guy has proven that he can step in and do an outstanding job.

    That being said, Marty is a warrior. The guy doesn't even wear a real chest protector for God's sake, just some form of modified shoulder pads with a small stomach guard attached. He'll play.
     
  16. I wouldn't say that Brodeur is the best ever, Roy is.
     
  17. He'll play but does that mean that he'll be a 100%?? Let's hope so.

    As of now, Roy has accomplished more. But Brodeur just turned 32 and already has the Cups and 400+ wins to his name--and people seem to forget that.

    And no, I don't want to start a debate.

    It sucks to not have Brodeur, but Theo and Luongo are still better than any other goalie in the tournament anyway. I'm not worried. It's not like we're not stuck with a Salo or Tellqvist. (poor Sweden)

    When was the last time Brodeur missed a game due to an injury (excluding the flu)?

    We don't know that for sure yet.
    Besides, I'd rather have a 100% Theo or Luongo than an 80% or whatever it is, Brodeur, just to be safe.

    I don't want Brodeur to play because on this team, any goalie could win. I want Luongo to play so people can see how good he really is, and to not think Brodeur is head and shoulders above every one else. Given time, Luongo may prove to be the better goalie. I want LUONGO!
