While I'm never happy to see a player be injured, I'm relieved that Belfour will not be participating in the tournament because this eliminates any chance that he will actually play. I was concerned he may play in the backup role, which I think there are several goaltenders who are better than him (although obviously Gretz and Co didn't).
This probably will put Luongo into the b/u role, which might be a good thing, just to let him see this level of play for the future when he probably will be one of Canada's top netminders.
I'm somewhat curious to see who gets asked to be the third goalie now. It doesn't really matter, I don't think, seeing how its unlikely he will play, but for prestige it would be a big deal to the players. I expect to see Jose Theodore named, personally, but perhaps Marty Turco will get the nod.
When I found out about this I was watching the score and didn't catch the name of the goalie who was out, but the way they were talking about it, it sounded like they were reading an obituary... I thought for sure it was Brodeur, thank god it turned out to be our third stringer.
I can't see why it really matters who the third guy is, they mind as well pick it on who charts shots the best because if anyone occupying that spot sees the ice, it's because team Canada has probably already lost at least two games and the cup is just about out of reach.
