Well fleury didn't choke in the stanley cup final like a certain somebody and actually played pretty good, yes he had a little bit of help from these crosby and malkin fellas but he still played good, you have to remember their defense wasn't that great. And I disagree, if they had lu they may not even have one cup

Right now I would say Tukka Rask is the goalie for Finland. Rinne will have to have a pretty great October-December, and there will have to be consideral drop-off from Rask for him to lose the spot.

I heard Hitchcock in an interview a few months back saying it was ridiculous to think Lu wouldn't at least get a look for the team after he won gold. Even if he doesn't start (which, honestly, I think he will but he will have to start like he did this year, rather than the past few to secure it) he'll be on the team.
