    Which Goalie?

    Hey guys I'm in a fantasy hockey WCOH pool...

    Goalies Picked Already:
    Brodeur
    Esche
    Vokoun
    Kiprussoff
    Tellqvist

    Should I pick DiPietro with my upcoming pick? Do you think he'll play in any games for the US?

    Thanks in advance!

    if you want a starter, kolzig should play every minute

    but then again, if you want a goalie who wont face a million shots, dipietro or salo are probably the backups with the most chance of starting

    TML, I don't think Dipietro will see too much time...

    .I do think that Ilya Bryzgalov could end up having a decent tourney..He's the only Russian GK with appreciable NorAm experience so look for him to get the nod and perhaps put up some solid if unspectacular numbers, maybe a chance for some spectacular ones if the Russians get far...

    Jan Lasak might be the best goalie in this tourney that no one's heard about. with guys like Zdeno Chara on defense in front of him, he could suprise.

    lol, there are no other "guys like" Zdeno Chara on that defense, which is exactly the problem :D

    Esche should be the man in nets for the U.S. Only thing about Esche is he is coming off surgery so I wonder if he will hold up for the tourney. Looked great last night though!!!!

    Bryzgalov and Lasak havebeen chosen.

    It's down to these goalies, now:

    RUS: Sokolov
    SWE: Salo
    USA: DiPietro
    GER: Kolzig
    CZE: Cechmanek

    Wins=1 Points
    Shutouts=2 Points

    A little advice?

    Thanks in advance!

    Sokolov made a good case against the USA in the last exhib. game, I suppose he's still in the running for the top job...and Stana with his performance tonight, prob. will get some time too..

    I think you may be right. He looked good last night from what I heard on the radio.
