    I think I would rather have Grahame on the US team than Dunham. Boy are we going to miss Richter between the pipes.

    I think a line up of DiPietro, Grahame and Rob Esche would be decent..Problem is, all of them will prob be in the playoffs and thus miss out on the World Champs in Czech...I know that finishes at this years WC's will determine eligibility for the 06' Oly tourney...my guess is Boucher and Conklin will go for the US. maybe add Dipietro if the Isles lose in the first round...

    Depending on what happens with those big three, hopefully the US will take a hard look at Conklin for the world cup...we'll see...

    US had Richter for so long, we took the guy for granted...US has some decent guys coming up, but no-one the calibre of Luongo or Turco...

    speaking of which: the Canadian depth in goal is absolutely sick....Turco has been a world beater and Belfour and Roloson have been great, but none of them is on the short list....some insurance polilcies in case of injuries!!

    Switzerland:

    very probably:
    -Gerber
    -Bührer
    -Rüeger (#3)

    Perhaps Aebischer if the Avalanches loose in the first Playoff round.

    I think Mikael Tellqvist has proven he can lead the Swedish team in net... he'd be the #1.
