Canada overreacts over Brodeur

Sorry, as Russia's fan I can't watch this hysteria anymore that has been going on here for the whole day. If you want to go to a war in a sudden death game you keep Brodeur in your net. I know he may not have had the best game against the US but if you analyze the two games he played in these Olympics he was good. Against the Swiss it was a deadly shot and a deflection. Any goalie in the world would have given you the same result if not worse. In the game against USA - first goal was a deflection again. The second goal may have been the only mistake he made. The only adjustment he needs to make is just stop playing the puck too much, that is all.

Also, you know that when the going gets tough Brodeur will play his best and that's what you need in order to win these games. I don't believe for a second that at this point Luongo is better than Brodeur, specially when it comes to a game with such responsibility. Have faith in your own guy!!!

Nice try, Bykov, but we're not falling for it.

easy to say when Russia doesnt have a goalie controversy



Broduer had 2 weak games, and even tried batting the puck out of the air to clear the puck with forwards coming in on him

At least not a bad one right? Though I might have missed on the general consensus of who they want to start, Nabokov or Bryzgalov.

I am beginning to think that alot of people are in for a shock at how much better Luongo is then Brodeur at this point.

Luongo hasn't proven anything. If he can carry the canadians to gold we'll have something to talk about.

If Luongo carries the team to Gold, he will join the Paul Henderson pantheon of forever-stars.

The point is that Luongo is also our guy. Brodeur really looked uncomfortable, awkward and out of position.

One way of looking at it is that you stick with that guy and hope he bounces back. The other view is that you don't take a chance that he repeats the same poor play.

I prefer to go with the younger goalie who has not shown the flaws that Brodeur has. That does not mean that Luongo is going to be great. If he plays poorly, or even lets in the winning goal after a strong game, he will be blamed.

Still, since it is all a gamble, best to go with someone who has not shown terrible play, as Brodeur definitely has.

Go Canada!!

Luongo is one guy, he hardly has to win gold to have played much better then Brodeur at this point. Canada is behind the 8 ball at this point, no doubt about it.

Maybe.

But games aren't "sudden death", they're 60 minutes.



GAME ON!

Go Canada!!
Do you go with the guy who has won everything but looked a tad shaky in 2 games? Or do you go with the guy who looked good against a weak opponent, and choked huge the last time he played an elimination game?

It's pretty much a coin flip for me. There are pros and cons to going with either goalie.

It's already been proven anyway that Siberan is in fact a KGB spy sent from the future.

Yes, they're overreacting on Brodeur. But he deserves some of the blame. He did do a couple of things that are so unlike Marty. But he can't help Pronger's stupidity, and Perry's idiotic penalty that gave them goal #4.

But he certainly wasn't his best. Lets see what Bobby Lou can do. I will be pulling for him.

Canada also overreacted on Joseph in 2002.

You're right that Pronger and the overall shaky defence deserves a lot of the blame. I don't think that Canada wants to be hard on the guy that won us gold in 2002, it's just that we think Luongo gives in the best chance right now.

I hope so, since that's the direction Babcock is going.

Before the Olympics, I was all about brodeur. Now I'm conflicted. I guess now is the time for Luongo to prove that he's better than he showed against Chicago last playoff.

For the future of hockey canada I hope he is.

I've flipped my coin, and I am glad that it turned up like Babcock's. I supported Brodeur's start against USA, but I have to go with my gut and back Luongo.
The fact he played against Switzerland actually cements my choice, let's not say that winning against the Swiss did not mean anything. To me, it's more how you played. Switzerland put tons of pressure on, and I thought Luongo put together a good game.

Good luck Roberto.
