    At this time, goaltending is the last place we should be pointing fingers. Brodeur and Luongo played great. Marty Turco doesn't make one iota of a difference.

    Oh ok, I see what you mean. You wanted him to play at least in the group round games? Dunno, I figure team canada didn't feel any need to rotate all three goalies. No team did in fact need to play more than 2 guys, but some did it anyway.

    Turco wasn't going to be the 1st goalie (barring injury) whatever happened in those preliminaries. That's all I think. That's the fate of 3rd goalies :)

    Marty Turco is pretty ****ing far from having a great season, he has history of flopping in the play-offs and has no international experience compared to Luongo & Brodeur.

    One of the few good choices in the games was not to use Turco.

    Brodeur was awesome. Goaltending is the only thing you can't complain about.

    Who cares? Other teams played their goalies because of either injury, or because they didn't have a clear number one goalie (ie. USA). Turco was just there as the third goalie in case of injury, that's it. Belfour didn't play in Salt Lake City, Brodeur didn't play in Nagano. Goaltending was not the issue in these Games, obviously.

    a 'history' of flopping in the playoffs? You call one sub par series against the Avs(in which Chris freaking Therien was the Stars leading goal scorer) a 'history' of flopping in the playoffs? Please.

    Just like I expected, vocal protests but no facts to back them up.

    Well you can't argue with the facts:

    -No international success
    -Average NHL season this year

    and then you can question his play-off performance as well, has never raised his game in the NHL play-offs

    Big deal.
    Belfour was the 3rd goalie last time and also didn't get ice time.

    It took you until today to figure out that Turco didn't play? Well-done.

    Agreed, I saw him take a penalty shot once and he rang it off the crossbar! Hands of stone!

    Here's why Turco didn't play: Canada got their creanpuff opponents (Italy, Germany) right away, but they had to play their top guys to easy them into game shape. Then once they started losing they had to play them again because they neeeded wins. If Canada had gone into the Czech game at 3-1 or 4-0, or if their last game had been against Italy, you probably would have seen Turco get a start.

    Honestly, what does this have to do with a team who scored in only one of the last 11 of 12 periods, and was outshot in each of the last three games by a 96-67 count, allowing over 30 shots in each of those games.

    There was nothing wrong with our goaltending, we lost 2-0 three times and didn't get a power play goal in the last 37 chances.
