Brodeur Questionable

Team Canada was doing great coming off a huge 5-0 victory against the Slovaks but the win may be costlyTeam Canada was doing great coming off a huge 5-0 victory against the Slovaks but the win may be costly.

Martin Brodeur of Team Canada and probably their MVP is hurt with a wrist injury. It occured with harmelessly with a dump in from center ice in the last three minutes of the 3rd period. He woke the next day with wrist pains and had to leave practice early with bandages over his wrist.

Brodeur commented by saying that he could play through the pain but if he feels he can’t play to the top of his level he will step aside for Roberto Luongo who Gretzky has chosen to start if Brodeur won’t be avaible.

    Theodore has more International experience (and played great) and should be the starter.

    luongo has enough international experiance, and no question he is the better goaltender. this is the guy i’d like to see backstopping us. my only worry is how some goalies flourish under the high pressure situations that arise in a crappy defense, like cujo used to in toronto and luongo did this year. he has looked sharp playing for canada though.

    Man, if Brodeur goes out….would you really be worried putting in Luongo or Theodore? We’ve got this wraped up. I could play net and we’d win. How many odd man rushes have we given up in the last 2 weeks? I can’t remember too many

    GO CANADA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Canada will do fine with Luongo. However, if Canada uses Luongo against Finland’s Kiprusoff in the Fianls, well…it should make for an interesting Finals. I’ll stick with Canada to win it all.

  5. habswinthecup-again says:

    Theo has looked better for Canada during this tourney.

  6. Enigma says:

    The Chzecs (sp?) will win it all, whether Brodeur is in net or not. I say 3 to 1 on saturday.

    i dont really think gretzky makes the decision who starts if brodeur isnt healthy. its the coach’s call. for gretzky to say what he did about luongo being ready, it probly just means that quinn has made the decision that luongo is the number 2 guy. plus its not really rocket science when you consider luongo’s been the backup for all but one of canada’s games so far.

  8. PayUpSucka says:

    Luongo is the backup to Marty. Luongo did just win the World Championships. It doesn’t matter as both Luongo and Theodore are both better than any other country’s starter. I mean seriously it doesn’t matter who plays out of the 2.

    Nice call Enigma! You were oh so close. Luongo! Please, saved the game for us more than once!

    Bring on the Fins.

    GO CANADA GO!!!!!

  12. Enigma says:

    Yea, but this was one of those predictions in which I was glad to be wrong. Good thing I didn’t put any money on it.

  13. Rico420 says:

    Didn’t seem to matter much but I wasn’t very thrilled about going to Overtime, hopefully Brodeur is back in top form for the Finns.

  14. DandoEagle says:

    lunongo should have been the starter in the first place because he is way more better than broduer. and theodore couldnt carry luongo’s pads. theodore sucks he is a terrible goalie. he never wins games for his team.

    Seems familiar…. I remember Kim Johnsen taking a chop late in a playoff game from a Devil that broke his hand. Funny how fate works.

    More importantly, the only people who care about this exhibition live north of the border. How are the ratings for the World Cup in Tampa? Columbus? Nahsville? OR EVEN Kansas City? There’s a bigger issue than this meaningless event. There is NO NHL GOD DAMN IT…..

    Well I’ve been watching it and been loving every game I’ve been able to watch.

    I as at the pre-tournament game @ Nationwide for Canada/US and the house was fairly full. Not as full as a regular ‘Jackets game, but still a good turnout. Of course being a Canuck south of the 49th helps with keeping my interest too.

    The problem with the interest factor is that ESPN, the league and the PA have not promoted the thing enough. Especially with the lockout going to happen. Guess it just goes to show you how serious everyone is about turning the league around as a whole.

    Hey Buddy???????

    Last time I checked USA was the more better team in this tournament. And where are they now??????

    Do us all a favour and shut up. you have more than proved your lack of knowledge when it comes to hockey already. Each time you post something it just further proves what we all know.

    And as i said before: go check out the dictionary on the internet. IT IS FREE. It might come in handy when you are sitting in class in the spring, trying to figure out just what exactly those tough grade 2 final exams are all about.

    Hey I was just wondering when Theodore had more experience than Luongo. Luongo played in the world juniors as well as being the guy who won the last two world championships for Canada. i am not too familiar with what Theodore has done so I was just wondering how he could possibly have more international experience than Luongo (especially since luongo has led Canada the past two world championships- how could Theodore have succeeded more than luongo in International play).
