    I was wondering if someone could give me a run-down on the Russian goaltending situation? Every year this seems to be the teams weakness, but they've onviously had no trouble winning lately.

    So who's playing? Who drafted them?? Who will start?? What are strengths and weaknesses?

    The starter will probably be Konstantin Barulin (might have spelt that incorrectly), a St. Louis Blues draft pick who was outstanding in front of that awful team Russia sent over recently for those exhibition games. While he's not a big name like Fleury, Toivonen, or Schwarz, he can definitely get the job done.
