That doesn't sound like a good tactic if the No. 1 goalie falters. But yeah, you know when I think about it your goalies are so great I wonder how it's even physically or metaphysically possible to score a goal on them?

And Tellqvist? Pfft, he wasn't even on the team. You know you have great depth at the goalie position when you have to leave out a guy like Tellqvist.
If Thomas had an injured hip? He had hip surgery.

And if you think I'm being biased about the physics and metaphysics of my USA goaltenders just because I think American goaltending has been better than Swedish goaltending in the last eight years (Ryan Miller was the best player in the Olympics, by the way), you clearly don't know me, because I always just cheer for Finland and Canada. I'm merely pointing out that Lundqvist wouldn't have gotten the start over Miller either, so your point about not being an Olympic starter means nothing. Unless you also think that Fredrik Modin was a better player than Martin St. Louis because St. Louis couldn't even make his Olympic team.
