    Looking forward to it! Should be the best game in the tournament if both teams decide to play the speed game they’re capable of. Back and forth hockey, yes please!

    Canada will win gold. It's a real shame we can't get gold again in the Olympics with our NHLers there

    As a Canucks fan I'm hoping for a Canada win but a great performance from Elias Pettersson.

    Should be a good match-up between the clear two best teams in the tournament. I had zero expectations of Canada getting here but they have come together as a team to do enough to win.

    I think Sweden has more high end talent but this Canadian team has been very good all around.

    I will predict a very good game from Hart to steal Canada the win in a tight 3-1 win for Canada.

    Canada's depth, workmanlike style and balanced overall game wears the Swedes down in a 4-2 Canada victory.

    Gold - Canada
    Silver - Sweden
    Bronze - Czech Republic

    Not really sure what to expect. Wouldn't be surprised to see another Gold Medal OT Game coming up.

    I'll guess 3-2 for Canada. My confidence that Canada wins in general is 7/10, mainly due to style of play. Sweden's top end talent is better, Canada's depth is better. Critical thing will be if the Canadian forwards put consistent pressure on Sweden.

    Let's go Svärje! Our neighbourhood country will take this for sure. Cheers to the friendship between Finska & Svenska.

    Canada will win Gold. Their overall depth is better than Sweden. Hoping to see a very large number of Canadians in Buffalo tomorrow.

    Sweden has better high end talent this year (arguably MUCH better), but Canada has strong depth and chemistry. Could go either way, and will hopefully be a fast paced, exciting game. Go Canada go!

    If we win tomorrow I admit it will be a bitter sweet one since we didn't get our chance at redemption against the US and will have to carry on a three game losing streak to them into next year.

    That being said, it will be much less bitter than sweet. ;)

    Im surprised that the swedes could handle the US, so I wont be counting em out in this years finals, since I think that Canada and the US plays a similar game. Sweden has always had a hard time playing vs NA teams and their high pressure/nastiness, but yesterday they prevailed, and thats unusual - hence, Im more optimistic now than I usualy am when Sweden's facing Canada.

    Like others been saying, if Sweden can stay out of the penalty box, at least more than in the semis, they have a chance.

    Dahlin has not been more than 4/5 so far. He needs to be 5/5 for Sweden to have a chance.
