    I'll say 5-4 Czechs in OT ... of course I predicted Germany upsetting Finland and Slovakia beating Canada also but who knows

    Canada over Finland 4-1 in the Final, as I predicted before the tourney.

    And I wasn't relying on Brodeur to steal any games.

    Luongo will do fine enough. Canada has the blueliners and defensive forwards to contain the top threats to a goal or two, especially with home ice advantage ont he shift changes.

    I am on record as having predicted before the Sweden game a 6-1 final (close to the 6-2 actual score)!

    This game: 4-2 Canada over the Czechs.

    I have yet to be wrong in this tourney. I shoulda gone to a Vegas bookie.
     
  9. Dont go to Vegas buddy :lol .
     
  10. Thats a good prediction but something tells me that it will be a lower scoring game like 3-1 or something.

    Canada has made at least four goals in most of the games so it gonna be 5-1 for Canada.

    I have a bad feeling about this game, I also had a bad feeling about the last game and Canada pounded the Slovaks 5-0 :lol

    Really, I'm kinda scared this time around without Brodeur in net but I think we have some solid goaltending so who knows. It's gonna be 3-2 Canada.

    Brodeur, Luongo, whoever, Canada will win 5-3.
     
  20. What worries me is that not having Brodeur in nets could ruin team Canada's confidence a tad.

    If history means anything, this should be a very close game.

    In 2002, these teams met and it was a 3-3 draw.

    In 1998, 1-1 draw after regulation and 1 period of overtime, and Czechs won in a shootout.

    It may come down to who's luckier tonight...

    Funny how all the Devil fans see Brodeur is out and predict doom and gloom for Canada. We aren't putting Chris Terrerri out there.

    And this won't be a 6-5 or a 5-4 game. Those predictions are way off. Canada is going to be even more solid defensively being aware that Brodeur is out, they'll be stronger on the puck in their own zone and play more man to man, which will limit their transition but also snuff out the Czech chances.

    I say 3-1 Canada.
