I call for Toivonen to play the first game. He's been the best goalie in camp and pre-season and deserves it.

Next time you "call" for someone to play in one of your posts, I suggest you put something like "Toivonen SHOULD play game 1" in the title.

I was gonna say the same thing, looks like it's been rectified though...

I was wondering why Toivonen would get the start.

(for those that read this after the change, the title was originally "Toivonen to start")

Toivonen was out played the vet from Finland, why should he start?

"To be honest with you, I thought Riksman was as good as any of our goalies in camp, and indeed may have performed the best," Blues coach Andy Murray said. "But it's best for him right now to (play in Peoria).

Hannu Toivonen is an awful goalie. I truly pray he doesn't start any games this season. Manny is a good #1 goalie, no matter how he has performed during the pre-season.

Huh? Fine to prefer Legace, and I like Manny Legace (Here in the Great White North, we still fondly remember his awesome performance for the Canadian junior team in 1992-93?) but to say Toivonen is "awful" is overstating the case. Aside from last year when he was injured, his pedigree suggests he's very good at stopping the puck.

I think St. Louis was wise to pick him up from Boston when his value was low.

Great someone is going to come on here and say Manny sucks because he lost 7-0 before looking at the whole picture and circumstances surrounding that game.

I agree Toivonen should start.

Legace looks like pure and utter garbage this pre-season
