The Hockey News - - Canada -

As funny as this might sound for a team that has three Vez­ina-cal­i­bre stop­pers, goal­tend­ing could be an area of fo­cus. It’s Carey Price’s net to lose, but he missed most of 2015-16 and will need to elim­i­nate rust quickly. Will the fact Canada faces two of the pro­jected weak links – Czechs and Europe – in its first three games be a bless­ing or a curse? Braden Holtby and Corey Craw­ford are stars, but they’ll need some work, too, to be ready.
