    What about changing the roster size for the olympics from 23 to 26 players? Then every team could have 8 defensemen and 15 forwards to choose from and every player wouldn't have to play every game in the tourney. Besides, it would make the competition on the team better. Also, only dress 18 guys a game, everything just like the World Cup.

    In a swedish point of view, this means that a player like Niklas Kronwall could've been on the roster and just play the important games, and rest the others due to his recently healed knee injury.

    Thoughts?

    Having 25 players might be a good idea, but if you can only dress 18 there's little point in changing the roster size to 26.

    If you can choose which 18 to dress for every game, it's a huge difference. You can let tired and important players rest unimportant games.
