I heard that Carl Haglin sucks on the powerplay and that he's a "jitterbug".  Anybody else hear that?

Surprised Hedman didn't make it. This is one dangerous team, a mix of leadership, skill, and great two way games and it's on big ice.

They underachieved in the last Olympics, so it'll be interesting to see how they do now.

 

I didn't realize Franzen was the senior statesman on that team.  After Alfie that is.   :lol:

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.

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

I've always thought OEL is a total PMD. And that Oduya would be typical stay-at-home D. Guess EA Sports can fool you...

Never said that Lidstrom was a bad leader anywhere, but Z might put them over the top this year.

Hedman and Hornquist should be on the team imo. Berglund is a headscratcher, he shouldnt be there.

And you would be correct.  Oduya is a stay at home guy and Larsson is a puck mover.  However, to be fair Larsson plays a real good good two-way game so it's a little unfair to call him a PMD considering he's grown beyond that, but that's definitely what he started as.  Oduya conversely has never been known to consistently produce any kind of offense and has never really been expected to.

Dude, is it just me or did another Team USA fan finally make his presence known?  For two days I've had to defend the USA squad alone.  Welcome aboard buddy.

I'll obviously be rooting for team usa (being american) but being a detroit native, wings fan, and so many wings on team sweden, i'll also be rooting for them.

I think itll be sweden, canada, russia, with the US not even earning a medal.

Don't be too sure.  Canada and Sweden are good, but the USA is better than 2010 and we didn't look too shabby then.  Russia won't even medal.  Every year everyone thinks they'll place because of their forward corps, but in reality they've only got like 4 or 5 quality forwards with shaky goaltending and a horrible defense. 

 

The US team has a little less scoring than Canada or Sweden, but is faster than both, grittier than both, and as good or better defensively than both.  Plus our goaltending is studly right now.  Don't sleep on the Americans, lean and mean baby.

Like pretty much all of my fellow American LGWers, I'll be rooting for the US of A, but my heart is kinda with Team Zetterberg.

Don't like my posts?  Don't read or respond to them.  The person I was talking to "liked" my response, so clearly it struck a chord with the person it was intended to.

Yeah, there pretty much isn't a better indicator of how interesting, intelligent, open-minded, or stable you are then getting a "I like your post" vote on LGW.

 

Keep striking those chords brother.

 

If you post the same opinion over and over, people begin to believe that you don't even believe what your posting. It's a slippery slope.
