    Team Sweden + Canada & Russia today (barring injuries)

    An Interesting idea

    Barring some of the people injured and out of form - it would look something like this:

    Forsberg-Sundin-Bäckström (new meets old)
    Zetterberg-Nylander-Modin/M Nilsson/M Samuelsson (difficult to choose last winger)
    D Sedin- H Sedin-Näslund (keep intact from club)
    Axelsson-PÃ¥hlsson-Alfredsson (checking line with some offensive punch)

    Extra F - Holmström /Huselius/Modin/M Nilsson/M Samuelsson/ all secondary options

    Lidstrom-Norström
    Kronwall-Tallinder
    Johnsson- K Jönsson

    Extra D. Ohlund /or Hävelid/

    Lundqvist
    Holmqvist
    Hedberg/Tellquist

    Coach :yo: Me

    The Russians do seem to have a better team at the moment tho (if they could keep their heads straight)

    What about -

    Goalies:
    Evgeni Nabokov - San Jose Sharks
    Ilya Bryzgalov - Anaheim Mighty Ducks
    Nikolai Khabibulin - Chicago Blackhawks

    Defensemen:
    Alexi Zhitnek - NY Islanders
    Anton Volchenkov - Ottawa Senators
    Andrei Markov - Montreal Canadiens
    Daniil Markov - Detroit Red Wings
    Sergei Zubov - Dallas Stars
    Sergei Gonchar - Pittsburgh Penguins
    Vitali Vishnevski - Anaheim Mighty Ducks

    Centers:
    Pavel Datsyuk - Detroit Red Wings
    Alexei Yashin - NY Islanders
    Evgeni Malkin - Pittsburgh Penguins
    Viktor Kozlov - New York Islanders

    Wingers:
    Ilya Kovalchuk - Atlanta Trashers
    Vyacheslav Kozlov - Atlanta Trashers
    Alex Kovalev - Montreal Canadiens
    Alexander Semin - Washington Capitals
    Alexander Ovechkin - Washington Capitals
    Alexander Frolov - Los Angeles Kings
    Maxim Afinogenov - Buffalo Sabres
    Sergei Fedorov - Columbus Blue Jackets
    Sergei Mozyakin - Khimik (Russian League)

    Extra - Sergei Samsonov - Montreal Canadians

    I find them very hard (on paper) to beat at the moment

    Canada would of course look something like:

    Goaltenders:
    Jean Sebastian Giguere - Anaheim Ducks
    Martin Brodeur - New Jersey Devils
    Roberto Loungo - Vancouver Canucks

    Defensemen:
    Chris Pronger - Anaheim Ducks
    Scott Niedermayer - Anaheim Ducks
    Wade Redden - Ottawa Senators
    Dion Phaneuf - Calgary Flames
    Robyn Regehr - Calgary Flames
    Brian McCabe - Toronto Maple Leafs
    Brian Campbell - Buffalo Sabres


    Centers:
    Sidney Crosby - Pittsburgh Penguins
    Joe Thornton - San Jose Sharks
    Vincent Lecavalier - Tampa Bay Lightning
    Chris Drury - Buffalo Sabres


    Wingers:
    Jonathan Cheechoo - San José Sharks
    Martin St Louis - Tampa Bay Lightning
    Ryan Smyth - Edmonton Oilers
    Simon Gagne - Philadelphia Flyers
    Brendan Shannahan - New York Rangers
    Jason Spezza - Ottawa Senators
    Dany Heatley - Ottawa Senators
    Jarome Iginla - Calgary Flames
    Joe Sakic - Colorado Avalanche

    Rick Nash - Columbus Blue Jackets ??

    Not too bad

    Czechs, Finns and Slovaks teams look good as well.

    Drury is american, not canadian.

    Ohlund as an extra D? **** that's laughable, he's easily a Top 4 defenseman for Sweden.

    Well as to someone mentioned that Finns look good, i might give it a shot

    What the Finns are missing right now is top end talent. The D looks pretty good and goaltending is one of the best, but second line is a big questionmark

    Lehtinen - Koivu - Selänne
    T.Ruutu - O. Jokinen - Peltonen
    J.Jokinen - M.Koivu - A. Miettinen
    S. Kapanen - Hahl - Hagman
    J.Ruutu, Bergenheim


    Salo - Timonen
    Pitkänen - Lydman
    Numminen - Nummelin
    Kukkonen - Väänänen


    Kiprusoff
    Toskala
    Norrena/Niittymäki


    Lehtonen has been shaky so im not putting him in goal yet.

    Best Swedish team? I disagree with both of those lineups, alot.

    Forsberg - Sundin - Alfredsson
    Zetterberg - Nylander - Näslund
    Sedin - Sedin - Modin
    Axelsson - PÃ¥hlsson - Samuelsson

    Ohlund - Lidström
    Tallinder - Kim Johnsson
    Hävelid - Tjärnqvist

    Lundqvist

    If memory serves, Tallinder, Lilja and Huselius are now cleared to play for Team Sweden again.

    During a tournament, the trio went out for a beer, the three of them ended up in a hotel room together with 1 woman. The woman later file ra-pe charges which only lead to them being cuestioned by the police. They were never arrested for anything but still got a lengthy suspension from the swedish hockey federation.

    Sorry - Chris Drury is definitely Canadian+ :dunno:

    I guess Rob Brind' amour would get the slot for Canada (as he is having stellar season and is two way player) instead - unless you can tell Drury that Canadian citizenship is better than American *(heh heh - funny funny) and he changes passports revealing his "real father" was a lumberjacking mounty in NWT or something...

    Regarding defensemen - I kinda agree that I was shortsighted (meaning that Kenny Jönsson would be healthy during this Fantasy 2007 Olympics in Kabul?) about the big Canuck

    Öhlund can start

    Together With Tallinder

    Kim Jonsson & Kenny Jonsson

    Niklas Kronwall would be a very eager fill-in to take up any slot on defense. He is the future guy on the blue line for years to come btw

    Bäckman was good 2006 - but who would he replace on D ?

    Sorry about dreamers still putting J Jönsson on the team. He would not be on mine ever again. It´s gotta be in his hair. But his brother is too good to deny a spot.

    Tallinder is again good to go now in Tre Kronor btw. His little chain gang activities with the donkey and the midget in The National team jersey´s after The Drugstore ("Labbet") have been forgiven and his suspension is over (or at least is in the official version). One funny part is that all 3 of the guys doing the Rocco imitation still are apparently with their girls at the time (aren´t they forgiving golddiggers a la Hillary??) of this incident. Do not know what I REALLY meant by saying this - but you gotta admit that it is interesting curiosa...

    And this is Mats Sundins last NHL season btw. Believe me when I say this - I have real good & reliable inside info on this. Forsberg is not giving up yet - tho. But may if he does not find skates. He is a very stubborn person. :clap:

    Backstrom would make it before Steen or Bergfors.

    Come on now.

    He is kinda sucky on the national team 9 times out of 10...

    But he still should be above Johnsson, etc
