I think you guys are overreacting just a little on your goaltending situation. You do have some good depth. There are at least 2-3 countries with no depth but a more solid #1. Trouble is, because you only play one goaltender, that might be more important than depth. Unless that #1 gets hurt, imagine where Slovakia would be if Halak is injured come Sochi?
I think someone will step up between now and Sochi and you'll be fine. Carey Price and Mike Smith are probably the most likely. I've always liked Smith and never understood why Dallas got rid of him (yes Brad Richards is good, but to lose Smith when Turco was shown signs of age was rough).
I wouldn't start mentioning Holtby in any conversations just yet. Remember, this is a guy who couldn't beat out an aging Vokoun and a crappy Neivirth just a month ago.
