Yep the goal against Norway was weakish. That being said, Roy hasn't exactly stood on his head and Visentin's save percentage is in the high 90's vs mid 80's for Roy. Level of competition is not the same but once again Roy has let in a minimum of one bad goal per game. Against Sweden today it was about 3 softies. The book is out on Roy. Shoot high. Lots of space up there. Roy is capable of the big save but he reminds me more of Darren Pang than he does Patrick Roy.
