    That's not correct! Josi play with Nashville since 2010. The swiss won the silver medal on 2013, 5 years ago. I think switzerland-finland will be a very close game. Swiss has maybe the best team they ever had, with Fiala,Josi, Niederreiter, Meier, Andrighetto, Mueller and so on. All of them are at least second line NHLer. Maybe the goaltender could be better on the swiss side.

    About time Aho got a hattrick. He has been worth it a couple of times already. Such an awesome player.

    Will be a one goal game. SUI is the clear favorite here ;). Let the games begin!

    Ok thnks for the correction. I had always in mind Switzerland won the silver medal in a championship held in Finland. Concerning the game I think you are right, it could be a very nice and interesting game, no clear favorit in my opinion too.

    Don't know if Canada could with those goalies.

    Sweden is gold favorite in my opinion so yes I agree.

    Sweden is definitely the scariest opponent; stacked team and great goaltending.

    The +/- of Kane compared to Aho... Pretty funny.

    kinda ****ty with this points system. The team that won 6 times in this tournament is second to the team that only won 5 games.

    Finland would have won 6 or 7 games if the point system were different. They just did minimum they had to. No point to take pointless points.

    I read somewhere that Aho has not been on the ice for a single goal against on 5v5? 9+8 and +15, incredible. We have a god in our team.

    Yikes. Brutal performance from Kinkaid, very discouraging going into the elimination games. (Very glad I forgot this game was at 6:15 :laugh:)That being said, nothing wrong with losing to the Finns in the prelims.

    Going into the elimination games this tournament is wide open, between the Swedes, Finns, Canadians, Russians, Czechs, US, and even the Swiss, I could see any team making a run.

    Aho/TT haven't been out for an Even Strength goal against in the tournament. Total domination.
