the german coach said,
"if we reach the mainpool, we don´t need him. then the other goalie was good enough, and then i have no reason to change the goalie"

and i think it is good, he should trust in Seliger!

IMO they need Kolzig badly if they reach the main pool.
Its a big risk to put Seliger in net against the worlds best players.

I am hoping for Canada or Russia to win!

I am afraid, this Olympics are going to be won by Americans. The won Squaw Valley Games, they won Lake Placid games. Once in 20 years ( 1960, 1980, 2002 ) Americans have the game on their soil and they are good in winning them. Now they have the best team they've ever had. I think it is going to be US-Russia final with, perhaps, US winning it.

No Way Guys.... Czech's will win it again. :p Too strong, too many good scorers. USA is hopeless partly because they don't get paid to play in the Olympics (and it's sad the USA doesn't apply an effort unless paid to do so) :( The Russians are always overrated. And besides did any of you see Khabbi play in net last night for the Lightning? He let in 3 softies and was pulled, has been that way the past 2 games. And Canada is always a disappointment.

So GO CZECH GO!!!!!!!

Mario must make team Canada to stick together and team USA cant play as a team!!
Czech's are having the Dominator, 4 years ago he almost won it alone!
IMO Russia has a tremendous team and can beat every other team.

Unfortunately Russians always struggle when facing a good solid defense, like it happened in Nagano final. Canadians or Americans would try to pressurise that defense physically, would try to score "ugly" goals, like from rebounds. Russians would stubbornly keep trying to beat that defense with their finesse and speed, and if it is not working, that's it, their arsenal is limited.

Group A:
Germany 3-2 Austria
Slovakia 6-6 Latvia :rolleyes: :D

Even if Slovakia wins the last game, they have no chance to win group A. Slovakia was leading 6-3 against Latvia, and they couldn't win it. Great job, Latvia!!! :D Latvia still has a chance, but they have to beat Germany.
