Also, being the 3rd string goaltender on an Olympic team doesn't make you elite.
Neither does being drafted first overall as an 18 year old.
First off the stats argument is really dumb was the point. PS for all you stat freaks, loook at Fleury's stats under Therrien's D-first system.....yeah, I know, a little better right.
Talk to any Canadian goalie, and ask them if being elected to their Olympic team makes someone Elite. He wasn't the 3rd String goalie for Norway, or Germany, he was 3rd behind quite possibly the best goalie to ever play the game, and a guy playing on his home ice. With as many options as Canada has to choose from, making that team absolutely puts you in the elite category.
