Who Starts In Goal For Team Canada?

from Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal,

I know they invited five goalies to Canada’s summer Olympic orientation camp–Roberto Luongo, Corey Crawford, Mike Smith, Carey Price and Braden Holtby–but let’s get serious here. It’s a very fluid situation in net as to who plays in Sochi; it’s the one area where we aren’t up to snuff with the Swedes and the Finns and especially the Yanks with Jon Quick and Jimmy Howard and Craig Anderson battling in net?

If Cam Ward, who has worn Canada’s jersey at the worlds more than once, is red-hot through the first three months with six shutouts and a 1.95 average, the folks picking Canada’s Olympic team are going to recalibrate their choices aren’t they?  What if  Devan Dubnyk, the ultimate good soldier for Canada at the worlds, always answering yes when they call, is 20-10 here with the Oilers, who shockingly are the NHL’s Cinderella story in the early going?  Don’t they have to consider him?  How about Marc-Andre Fleury?  What if he’s reborn and  learns how to stop the puck again in Pittsburgh?
