Salo was the best goalie we had at the time, sure, he had an awful game, but it was a team loss. The entire team played awful, the same team that made the eventual champions, Canada, look like they didn't know what they were doing.

I think what sealed the deal with Salo's shamefilled legacy however was the 5 goals he let by him in the quarterfinal of 2003 against Finland. When Salo heads to the bench to get swapped out for Tellqvist and gives him the tap on the pads, that's the end of his career to me.
