Although to be fair, in a short tournament going with a young hot goalie works out a lot more than you might expect - see Hiller and Halak in 2010, Niittymaki in 2006, and so on.

Canada has the luxury of not needing to go with an unproven guy, but other countries that don't have that luxury have still managed to succeed.
