The Swedes really needed an NHL-caliber goaltender in order to have a chance at winning.

I agree. No clue who this guy in net is. Doesn't help Sweden can't bury their chances.

Where did you see Franzen has a broken nose? I mean, I don't doubt it after what happened, just looking for a source.

Sweden was playing really good in 1st but in 2nd Russians got under their skin and Swedes lost it totally. game was lost basically when it got tied 3-3, but I didn't expect such blowout.

Franzen needs to calm down. Yemelin really got the best of him. same goes for Landeskog who took even dumber penalty.

Fasth and Enroth are perfectly fine if the team in front of them stays focused. it was for the first 30 minutes.


PS. Eriksson still rocks. and Malkin is, skills aside, f* goon.

I'm sorry but Yemelin dove like it was frickin Olympic diving. They didn't deserve either penalty that tied the game at 3-3. I would most likely get frustrated if they were calling obvious diving calls like that. The game was an absolute gongshow.

Yemelin is a b*tch and I really enjoyed Franzen pummeling him and cheapshoting in the crease. but I don't think any of those penalties was undeserved. there was serious crap going on around Russian goal, delivered by both parties. as the 2nd period unfolded it was more and more started by Johan. at some point Yemelin (and Nikulinin(sp?) ) were so much in Swedish heads that it became 5-3 PP and it all spiraled downward for Sweden from then on. the game was basically lost at this point. I didn't expect it to become 7-3, though. more like 4-3...

Sweden remains my favorite to win the tournament, anyway. they just need to learn a lesson from this game. and for the love of god, coach Marts, please don't play Hjalmarsson and Stalberg in crucial situations. they are f* lazy and cough giveaways...

I see the loss to Russia as a good thing. Things were going too smooth for the Swedes, and you're not gonna go through an entire tournament without a single loss.

Now they can make adjustments and come back with a vengeance if they face the Russians again.

But yeah, the goalies are an issue. Fasth was good last year but not this year. But maybe they need to keep playing him so he can get into a groove, instead of switching between him and Enroth.

Just a question. Why does (Y)emelin add/drop the Y in his last name depending on where hes playing?

Agreed. His dives made Kesler's look subtle and understated.

Malkin is probably one of if not the dirtiest star player in the NHL right now.

TSN is airing the Canada - Kazakhstan game (and well they should) and figure that "Krasnoslobodtsev" (Vadim) is the longest surname of an athlete they have encountered, clocking in at sixteen letters.

So what did Datsyuk vs. Zetterberg look like?

Were they out many for many shifts against one another?

same is with Malkin. in WC his name is written Yevgenyi or something like that, but in any case it starts with Ye.

if I'm correct this is a matter of different transcription from Cyrilic, i.e. to different Latin-written language. transcription
is always about representing sounds read in one alphabet by closest sounds in target language (and their representation
with alphabet).
closest representation of Евге́ний in English is Evgeni, while in French (which is basis for international hockey
tournaments if I'm correct) its Yevgenyi and in Polish its Jewgieni.


whatever transcription you use, my opinion about him is not gonna change. he's a very efficient punk.
Yemelin that is. Malkin... I just QFT haroldsnepts.

Yep. In the Cyrillic alphabet, the letter E makes a "yeh" sound, not just an "eh" sound like in ours. So you can either make it look more like Russian by putting an E, or you can make it sound more like Russian by putting a Ye.

Nobody lives forever.
Some things never die.
Like up in the land of ice and snow,
They tell me that a Red Wing always flies.

IMHO, Landeskog at this point is as good as Cleary. and he's young and can only get better.
