Not a chance in hell anyone other than Price or Luongo is the start in Sochi.



I disagree 100%, because you stated that you don't think Price is a lock to be going to Sochi. Which is totally ridiculous, and it has nothing to do with our depth. Price would be a top 3 goaltender for any country in the world right now.

You could make a case for USA (Quick, Miller, Anderson/Schneider) or Finland (Rinne, Lehtonen, Kipper) but even then I think it is pretty clear Price is a top 3 goalie on either of those teams. The knocks you could use against Price go just as much for Lehtonen, Rinne and Anderson/Schneider as well.
Are you really comparing Fleury and Brodeur? Brodeur has the best pedigree to lead. He's a natural leader and big game player.

Even if Price were to start, the leach (sp?) would be very short.
