The only alternative or Tortorella, and after the water bottle throwing incident two weeks ago, I'm not sure he's got the temperment to handle a USA-Canada game being played in Vancouver.
Well as a Bolts fan I <3 Torts. temperment or not.
I know we don't have very good goalies to choose from... but Wilson should still be able to tell when he should give a different goalie a chance. Esche has proven he can't steal games. I have more faith in Clemmy at this point.
I like our chances in this game but it's not going to be easy. Canada's defence was in major trouble with our forechecking and I think it'll be the same way in this game. Only problem is that we lack goal scorers. Finland will probably shoot 40+ times again and make Esche look like a hero. I say 3-2 Finland in OT.
Watch Leo Komarov. He's Ruutu's apprentice who's been turning some heads in the tournament. Reports say he's had good contract offers from KHL, but could he even make the NHL next year?
I guess Niinijaana plays a good game
when we don't notice him at all.
Exactly. The most annoying thing about him (besides the obvious fact that he can't play defence) is that he thinks he's a puck moving d-man, when he should just give the puck to the closest teammate as fast as he can.
