Why Didn't Gushue Freeze?
At the end of the 6th end this morning, I queried why Brad Gushue, skip of Newfoundland, didn't freeze to a Manitoba stone in the 3rd and 6th ends. In both instances, he hit and rolled out, leaving draws for high scores.
So I asked him about it during the media scrum at the conclusion of the game. His answer was exactly the one I suggested: if the freeze hadn't been perfect, Stoughton could have scored even more.
As Alan says, "It's all about risk management".
