    I see, it could be a very tough game for Finland against Switzerland at the olympics, especially due to the goalie position. For Switzerland Aebischer will play I suppose at the olympics and he is a very good goalie.......

    Gerber is the starter in Switzerland, the coach really like him and his overall performances are quite good.

    Aebischer will be the back-up.

    Hiller is goalie number four at the moment.

    Switzerland still has potential. But I'm sure the team will pick up the pace till the Olympics begin.

    Looks like Krikunov is giving a lot of youngsters some higher level international experience.

    I wish none of them would, besides Malkin

    Why weren't Slava Kozlov and Zherdev chosen, still beats me.

    Malkin, Sushinsky, Sokolov, Korolyuk all needed to be there.


    Zherdev is still green and Slava Kozlov is an idiot who would do 10x more harm than good. Kharitonov should have been replaced by Morozov... but its not a huge upgrade if Kharitonov plays with Suhsinsky (rumour has it he WONT!). Kulyash could have been replaced with Tverdovsky/Zyuzin, but really it doesnt matter much.

    Brylin could have been factored into the lineup but ahead of Kozlov (especially considering Kozlov isnt good at center) and not Korolyuk as Korolyuk is also great on the PK and has a much better offensive upside than Brylin.
