    Thankfully, Roy can't be back.

    Am I the only one that wants no part of Visentin either?

    What's the next combo?

    Pickard &?

    Scott Wedgewood. He's better than both guys in on the team this year without a doubt in my mind and didn't get an invite to camp.

    To my fellow Canadians.

    Pickard would've had 7 shutouts.

    Visentin didn't play very good in the 3rd, but he is not the reason Canada lost the game. They came out in the 3rd with a sense of entitlement and expected the Russians to roll over and die and played pathetic in the final frame. They deserved to lose and the Russians deserved to win. They are a disgrace to the country.

    I don't agree, he is pretty much one of the main reason why Canada lost, one more key save and we might have won. He's made 1 single good save before the third, on that breakaway in the second. Fact is both our goalies were average.
     
  14. Toskala would have had 7 wins :sarcasm:

    Granted Visentin didn't make the outstanding save to regain momentum but that might have been the worst period of hockey a Canadian team has EVER played.

    Can't blame the goalie really.

    Canada just stopped playing and got steamrolled.

    Visetin HAS to make the saves on that 2nd and 5th goal. Those were just awful.
     
  18. At least Roy would have gotten the game to a shootout...

    He sucked in the third for sure but had a lot of help.

    Man, Canada needs to work on developing goaltenders. Seriously out of this whole freakin' country we can't have 1 solid netminder?

    Although, Viz didn't play that well but he's not the only reason we lost. The boys sat back in the third.

    Roy might not have beaten the US.

    The fact of the matter is that neither was good enough this year.

    He sucked in the third but the team had a terrible game plan in the third and laid back too much. Could start seeing it in the second too. Coach sucked too.

    I'm questioning Visentin's mental abilities. Hes technically fine, but he was definitely shaken after that 2nd Russian goal and was pretty bad at times in the first, probably due to the nerves. He was lights out in the 2nd when Canada had a big lead.

    I see that it is easier to continue to throw goaltenders under the bus then it is to face up to a 20 man team's performance.

    Marty's fault.
