    sadly I have not been wtching closely enough as our TV coverage is just plain poor and I am at work or someplace else.........

    I think the US has bagged the mens snowboard Golds, not sure of the women and also 1 guy I think ? clinched 2 golds in the speed skating.

    question and more of an observation, and I could be wrong ........ but why do the figure skating guys look a little fruity for the top standings ? - From the same generic mold I wonder - :shock:

    What? Ok now I am no fan of Hasek, but I give the devil his due. Hasek is or has been one of the top 3 goalies for years now. He is sick good in the net, don't really like him but he can stop pucks. Vokoun is not as good as Hasek, not yet anyways. I can't believe this would ever happen I am defending Hasek, yikes thats hard to believe. He didn't look so good when he faced Switzerland.

    Hašek is just an old lazy ass. I don't say he's good, he's damn good, but in my opinion Vokoun is now better. I don't have access to watch the NHL though, so I can't be sure. But from what I've learned from the newspapers and what I've seen last year in the Championship, I bet Vokoun.

    What about Canada? I even don't know who's the goalie there... Brodeur? Or is he retired yet? ... :rolleyes:
