Top 10 Goalies At The Winter Olympics

Tim Wharnsby of CBC lists the top 10 goalies in Sochi, here are 7-10...

- Antti Niemi, Finland – He’s tied with Price for the most starts this season at 47 and simply wins and wins and wins for San Jose.

- Jonathan Quick, United States – He hasn’t been as good since he returned from his serious groin injury. His has lost five of his last since for Los Angeles and has a less-than-ordinary 6-8-2 record since he returned after being sidelined for eight weeks.

- Roberto Luongo, Canada – The defending gold-medal champion has slumped with only a victory in his last six starts and a less than dazzling .887 save percentage for Vancouver.

- Jaroslav Halak, Slovakia – Since a flu bug took him from the net for 12 days after Christmas, Halak has gone 7-2-1 since Jan. 9 for Slovakia.

read on for 1-6...

Did this guy even look at the stats Quick has had since his return, other than his 6-8-2 record?  Without Quick, the Kings would not have won even that many games since his return.  He was outstanding (except for a game or two) in January.  But, yeah, okay, he’s average because his team has completely forgotten how to score a goal and can’t win enough games 1-0 (only two in January).  Usually I like Wharnsby, but it’s obvious he doesn’t pay any attention to the Kings.
