    I'm so pumped up about this game, that I cannot sleep. There's so much adrealine allready, that I could beat all the guys in city of Stockholm all by myself. And wipe out some Gothenburg ***, while at it. :madfire: :madfire: :madfire:

    I'll start drinking brandy. Lets hope that saves Sweden from blowing up and sinking to the sea due to my wrath. :madfire: :madfire: :madfire:

    Disagree and Agree.

    Should be a barn-burner of a game, I can't wait. Also, I want to get the Trade Deadline and Playoff push excitement going...

    I can't sleep either! I wish I had some pills as I want to be clear when the game begins.

    The closer it is getting to the game the more nervous I am becoming. Team Sweden consists of better players so our team must have 100% performance to get Gold.

    You North Americans and others who don't care about the Gold game, I think you should give the game a try. Finland - Sweden games are usually extremely intense and this is a Olympic Gold game.

    The USA never stood a chance in this tournament.

    Once I get past the fact that Canada sucked donkeys and lost out, I realize that this gold medal final is actually going to be really awesome. Probably the best one ever, in terms of the rivalry. When was the last time Fin/swe played in any type of final??

    I thought finland might win, but after going over Sweden's lineup, man they have some amazing talent. I have to go with Sweden in this one unless the Finnish goalie can pull a miracle.

    I can't wait for this game either. :yo:

    I am cheering for a good game. I don't like either team particularly more, and I really enjoy watching most of the players on each team.

    Go hockey!

    World Champs 1998. Sweden won gold (two games) by 0-0, and 1-0.

    However Finland won the euro hockey tour last year over two games.

    I've made plans to go down to the pub and watch the game at 6 AM tomorrow morning. I'll watch the Man Utd FA Cup game after that.

    It's going to be a hell of a game, I honestly cannot wait.


    GO SAKU!!!!!!!! :yo:

    No chance the USA was even near. Go back to your slumber.

    True... I was thinking more along the lines of giving HF a rest (because the server will be having a prolapse anyway) and letting TSN give me updates on the actual day (March 7th?)... not watching the Trade Rumours forum brew into a hysterical mess...

    but yeah, I can't wait to cheer on Teppo and Toni...

    I knew going into this tourney that the USA was going to suck and not go anywhere. The only people who care about this game are the Finland / Sweden fans. The other 80% of the hockey world wants the NHL back.

    80% of the hockey world? The hockey world doesn't just consist of USA and Canada if you believed that.

    I know, I know. :cry:

    I seriously think we 5,2 million Finns should somehow leave rally to the Russians, ski jumping to the Swedes, Formula 1 to the Chinese, curling to the Canadians, hockey to the Merkings, economy to the Nigerians,... and go back to our distant planet with our star fleet.

    i think the USA performed better than most people think. Look at their games:

    3-3 latvia, stolen by goalie, US dominated.
    4-1 kazhakstan, US was dominant
    2-1 slovak win, US was the better team and held most of the play
    2-1 swedish win, US and swedes played a very even game
    5-4 russian win, US was the better team, a few weak goals were allowed
    4-3 finnish win, US held its own and dominated the 3rd, nittymaki stole the game IMO.

    Call me biased, but that is how i saw the US play. They just couldnt put it together. They had good games but couldnt finish, and when they seemingly found there finishing, the goaltending fell apart.
