Might be a bad search, but I was not able to find a thread about the WC 2011.

Just felt I -had- to make a thread as NORWAY beat big brother SWEDEN 5-4 SO last night :)

Sweden with 9 NHL-players in the team - Norway with zero (as Zuccarello (NYR) was injured and Holos (COL) didnt make the game in time to play). And KHL-champion Patrick Thoresen said no thanks to play the WC for Norway this year.

But hey, who cares. NORWAY BEAT SWEDEN - In HOCKEY!

Huuuge! The players celebrated like they won the whole WC. Couldnt fint a video with english speak, but here are some highlights with finnish commentators:

Edit: Who do you guys think will win it this year? My bet is Canada.

Well, good enough to beat Norway with several goals if they had just kept played hockey ;)
Players like Loui Eriksson (Dallas), Backlund (Calgary), Ekman Larsson (Phoenix), Tedenby (NJ), Berglund (St.Louis), Pajaarvi (Edmonton)

Here is Team Sweden: LINK

Stats from the game can be seen HERE

Well.. a very average Team Canada and a VERY average Team USA both eliminated.. no Red Wings to watch on Sweden or Russia.. they might as well call off the rest of the tournament now.. :ph34r:

By the way, I cant think of any off the top of my head, aside from Miller who I believe is injured, but were Conks and Montoya really the best US goalies available?.. Not that Canada was that much stronger with Reimer/Bernier..

Yeah, I didn't see the games but why wouldn't they try and fly out Quick, Anderson or Boucher.

Thank you!

I'm a bit drunk right now, I did believe we had a good chance to win but after so many finals losses... I didn't dare start celebrating until 4-1.

Suomi Finland Perkele!

Unbelieveable feeling right now. I just came from the town and everyone were crazy there. Everyone was so happy even though no one bought me a beer. :(
