Our goalies are representing!   Very proud of them both.  I would say Team Sweden has a very good chance at a medal, possibly Gold.

Didn't see this posted anywhere else: Jurco and Tatar are both on the Slovak roster.

 

That makes 10 Red Wings going to Sochi. I think.

 

Datsyuk

Howard

Zetterberg

Alfredsson

Franzen

Kronwall

Ericsson

Monster

Jurco

Tatar

Tre Kronor is the team to beat, easily. Sorry folks, but I'll be cheering for them. The way Team USA 's management has acted has just really put me off.

Their defense safe for OEL and Kronner lacks stay at home defenders, other than that a very good roster, they should medal for sure.

 

So happy for the Monster, well deserved

Well, I'll be cheering on Russia for Datsyuk's sake, but after that its Sweden who will get my support.  Canada can go lose the bronze medal game to Slovakia :)


"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

This is a really good roster, but I can see them getting upset by another really skilled Euro squad.  Someone like Finland or Russia could steal one against Sweden because it looks like they'll be goalfests with this defense.


GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

Is Victor Hedman really not better than any of those defenseman?

Isn't he still injured?  That could be why.

 

Edit:  Nevermind, he's back from injury.  And apparently lighting it up since his return.  So your question definitely a good one.

I almost wish that they'd have zero, so that they'd be healthier upon the end of the Olympic break.

It was also confirmed that Zetterberg will be wearing the C, with Kronwall and Henrik Sedin the Assistants. 

 

I have to say I was very pleasantly surprised by the team. They didn't just take the 'best' players like Team Sweden has had a tendency to do, they've actually thought about everyone's roles and it makes sense. I obviously would have liked to see Nyquist, and it seems he was one of the last players to get cut, and Zibanejad would have been a more offensive choice than Berglund or Kruger but overall I think this is a great team on paper. 

 

Is Victor Hedman really not better than any of those defenseman?

2 things working against Hedman: Kronwall/Ericsson and Hjalmarsson/Oduya are established pairings which helps in a short tournament with little time to build chemistry. And Hedman has some really bad performances for the national team in the past. 

Tallinder is not going to play very much and is brought along as a character guy. Edler is the guy I'd cut for Hedman/Brodin but he has been good for Mårts in the past.

Nope I think, if Kronner doesn't need to play the QB PP role he will and should focus on his shutdown role. Let Karlsson be the QB and focus more on the defensive duties. Having said that it's almost unreal how much weaker their defense is looking without the perfect human.

OEL, Ericsson, Hjalmarsson are the stay-at-home guys. Karlsson, Kronwall, Oduya the offensive guys. Pretty simple. Of course Kronner is still great defensively.

Personally I'm picking Sweden for gold at the moment, (along with preying no one gets injured), with Canada/Russia fighting it out for silver/bronze. 

 

One things for sure, I'm bloody well excited for it now!
