It's been confirmed on the swedish Sportsradio(P4)
Ronnie Sundin will replace him.
Geez....my 2 favorite players out of the Olympics
Sweden will be hurt by this. Great defensive player and a true warrior. Hope he gets rid of his concussion problems fast so he can get back to playing.
I would say that NorstrÃ¶m is a more important player for Sweden, than both LidstrÃ¶m and Forsberg..
Just keeps getting worse & worse..
We are pretty much doomed now.
Heard that it was between R Sundin & N Wallin.
Dont know which one I wanted to come but lets just hope Sundin makes a good tournament.
Kim Johnsson, Marcus Ragnarsson, Niklas Kronwall (whoÂ´s -------> PitkÃ¤nen), Mattias NorstrÃ¶m & Markus NÃ¤slund.
Probably Forsberg aswell.
I miss Ulf Samuelsson.
Where can Sweden's updated roster be found?
I really feel sorry for Sweden and it's a shame that this is happening. I was really looking forward to watching the Tre Kronor (sp?) play..
Starshollow is the biggest Swedehomer on these boards.
huge downfall for sweden. But we dont need to use ronnie sundin right? We could just roll on 6 d-men.
what happened, excactly?
Too bad. He really wanted to compete this year. He was holding off his decision to the very last even with a cervical strain, a wired jaw and I think concussion issues related to the C-strain. Any guy who can take a slapshot to the mouth and get up ans skate to the bench is someone you want at the Olympics...too bad for Sweden.
He was apparentyly leaving it up to the Swedish management as to whether they wanted to wait a week and see if he healed or just replace him...I guess they made the decision.
I know. That's why I put the " ".

I was hoping that Kenny JÃ¶nsson would be benched in this tournament but since it's Sundin replacing NorstrÃ¶m this really suck! This is the defencemen that I absolutely not wanted to miss the Olympics, crap! It should have been Niclas Wallin or Timander replacing, not Sundin.
I don't miss his crying.
Your two favorite teams are injury ridden aswell, cant you "switch sides" from LA and Philly to Ottawa, Carolina and NYR for a month?
Matty suffered a concussion on the 7th (I believe) in a game against the Minnesota Wild and has only been able to play a couple of periods since. He is still suffering from concussion-like symptoms.
This is not good.....SO......NOT......GOOD!
With all these defensemen dropping out, it makes the decision to ban Tallinder come back and hurt us even more.
