Men behind the mask – Who will be Canada’s Olympic Goalies?
Eric Duhatschek of The Globe and Mail leads an excellent discussion of the Canadian situation in goal for the 2010 games. They look at how the playoffs have affected al the leading goalie’s chances of being included, and speculate on how a cup win might change things for Fleury or yes, Chris Osgood:
Button wondered if the longest of long shots – Osgood – hasn’t played himself into consideration, with his even-keeled steadiness this postseason. Osgood is one of those rare goaltenders who elevates his game in the playoffs, and needed to do so after a mediocre regular season.
“If Osgood wins again this year, that’ll be four Stanley Cups [in his career],” Button said. “I’m not sure he’s your  starter, but he should be under consideration.”
