Who Would You Pick..

You are coaching team Canada, you have a goaltending situation. As it turns out Canada's number one goalie is (was) Marty Brodeur, He is getting exposed for being a 37 year old has been who cant play without the trapping style of defensive boredom that is the New Jersey Devils. Next in line is Roberto Luongo, one of the finer goalies in the league for sure, but what has he done in a high pressure situation. He had a must win game last year in the playoffs, anybody remember how that turned out for him, he has won 2 playoff series in the last 10 years, Meanwhile you have Marc Andre Fleury sitting way back in the 3rd who, only 25 years old has his share of big games that he has shined in. Not to mention a game 7 against Alex Ovechkin in Washington. Above that a Stanley Cup game 6 and game 7, both Elimination games and both games Fleury has answered the call and raised his level of play.

It all comes down to his last name not being Luongo or Brodeur. If Luongo succeeds and plays well for the Canadians good for him, but he didnt get the job because of past performances, he got it because he issupposed to be able to do it. Marty Brodeur started as the number one goalie because he was supposed to be, I cant imagine anything he has done lately would cause them to start him. The more Canada fails, the better I feel. It's makes it even better when coaching/Management doesn't give them the best chance to win. When that happens its just funny.

I would be shocked if Team Canada makes it past the Russians.

Go U.S.A.
