Here is SI senior writer Michael Farber's all-tournament team

G Nikolai Khabibulin, RUSSIA
Stole the game of the Games, a 1-0 quarterfinal win over the Czechs.

D Scott Niedermayer, CANADA
Broke traps with his speed, leading rushes as often as joining them.

p Vladimir Malakhov, RUSSIA

Played solidly—and physically—at both ends of the ice.

LW John LeClair, U.S.
Had a tournament-best six goals and was too much for defensemen to handle down low.

C Joe Sakic, CANADA
Was the spark plug in the gold medal game, with two goals and two assists.

RW Brett Hull, U.S.
Had three goals and five assists; found seams for his one-timers and buried rebounds.
