    And yeah, it's kind of a big deal that half of the coaching staff can't do work for half a group stage. Would be funny if they let the players coach themselves for these games.

    Well, Isac Lundeström, Linus Högberg and Alex Nylander sure didn't wear their medals either. Dahlin did. Confusing to say the least.

    Took them 4 months and they got it wrong :ha:

    What's the projected roster looking like at this point?

    Too early, I know. But who do you have?

    ehm. Most of the projected rosters are from January.

    Was hoping some of the Swedish posters could post something more recent (with the u18's having been played).

    I think it is probably a pretty safe assumption to make that Dahlin won't be available for this tournament.

    Switch Rasmus for the other Rasmus and ill think the team is pretty similar to what we will see in December.

    Very little chance Boqvist plays on the top pair, he didn’t even make the team this year. Particularly if returning players are on the D roster.

    With more ice-time in SHL and a good development, the chanse is good imo.

    Making the team as a U18 D almost never happens. Dahlin, Larsson and Hedman are the only ones I can think of who did it the last 10 years. Hägg played too, but he was like the 5th reserve on D that year. Boqvist should be a big part of this team if he has a good season.

    If Liljegren/Brannstrom are in the NHL, then he has a chance. Otherwise very doubtful.

    He can be a good second pairing option, I agree. Hopefully he keeps progressing and Sweden will once again have a very strong blueline at this tournament.

    I've seen Hallander and Berggren listed as potential late 1st/early 2nd rounders this year. Who would you compare those players to?

    After much deliberation, here's my WJC 2019 roster and analysis for Sweden. Enjoy!

    Team Sweden WJC 2019

    Marcus Sylvegård - Isac Lundeström - Lukas Elvenes
    Filip Hållander - Jacob Olofsson - Fabian Zetterlund
    Emil Bemström - David Gustafsson - Jonatan Berggren
    Albin Eriksson - Marcus Westfält - Olle Lycksell
    Jesper Emanuelsson

    Erik Brännström - Timothy Liljegren
    Jacob Ragnarsson - Adam Boqvist
    Adam Ginning - Filip Westerlund
    Rasmus Sandin

    Olle Eriksson Ek
    Olof Lindbom​

    Forwards

    The first line: Marcus Sylvegård - Isac Lundeström - Lukas Elvenes
    This line is made up entirely of 19 year olds, each over 6' tall. Elvenes, who was controversially cut last time at the last moment, is Sweden's most skilled forward that is heading to the WJC. Lundeström, a reliable, well-rounded player and one of only two returning forwards from the 2018 WJC, is currently Sweden's best C for this tournament (though Olofsson will try to change that perception in the coming months). The only question mark is Marcus Sylvegård, who raised his stock this year with 5 points in 25 SHL games, and is returning to the SHL to add more polish to his game.

    The second line: Filip Hållander - Jacob Olofsson - Fabian Zetterlund
    The 18 year olds Hållander and Olofsson are teammates in Timra (SHL) and will likely be kept together. Their chemistry could be key for Sweden in a short, two week tournament. Zetterlund, the other 19 year old SHL veteran forward with WJC experience, is the second best RW available to Sverige and a top 6 lock.

    The bottom 6:
    There will be plenty of competition for bottom 6 spots, and enough Center depth in Gustafsson and Westfält to keep other teams honest. Berggren and Bemström will both rightfully challenge Sylvegård for a top 6 position. Much depends on their progress from here on out, including the WJCSS, and the start of the SHL season. Let's hope the coaching staff makes the correct call, it won't be easy unless a player can truly separate himself by taking the next step.

    Defencemen
    The top pairing: Erik Brännström (LHD) - Timothy Liljegren (RHD)
    With 1st overall pick Dahlin likely starting in the NHL, Liljegren could take over as Sweden's top defenceman, and by far it's most experienced player on the smaller North American ice. Pairing two 19 year old 2017 1st round picks, both in their draft+2 year, could result in one of the best pairings at the 2019 WJC. Both players bring valuable experience from last year's Silver medal winning WJC team, and Liljegren adds an element of physical play to the top pair as well. This pairing would dominate at both ends of the ice, and could be the greatest strength and backbone of Team Sweden this year.

    The second pairing: Jacob Ragnarsson (LHD) - Adam Boqvist (RHD)
    The young Boqvist, another likely 1st round talent in the upcoming 2018 draft, could be a nice asset at this tournament as a second pairing offensive-defenceman. An early cut last year, Boqvist still has some time to add much needed experience at the SHL level before he features in the WJC as an 18 year old. Pairing him with the powerful and experienced 19 year old Ragnarsson would help provide a security blanket for the offensive minded Boqvist.

    The third pairing: Adam Ginning (LHD) - Filip Westerlund (RHD)
    Westerlund, another 19 year old in his draft+2 year, was a late cut from the WJC team last year. The 2017 2nd round pick was dominant at the SuperElit (Swedish U20) level last season and brings experience from over 50 SHL games already. A stabilizing presence on the ice with good puck control and agility, the right-shot defenceman will be a rock on Sweden's third pairing. The 6'3" 200lb Adam Ginning captained the bronze medal winning U18 team, and also brings experience from 50 SHL games to the table, narrowly edging out the left-handed defenceman Rasmus Sandin for the final bottom pairing position. If the coaching staff opts for a right-handed defenceman instead of Rasmus Sandin (LHD), the 19 year old Victor Berglund (RHD) would be my choice for seventh defenceman.

    Goaltenders
    Olle Eriksson Ek has had an impressive year, with dominating performances at the SuperElit level while more than holding his own in Allesvenskan with the senior team. Eriksson Ek, who will be 19 years old and playing his draft+2 season at the time of the 2019 WJC, was up with the Silver medal winning WJC team to soak in some valuable experience last year. It is difficult to see any other Swedish goaltender challenging him for the starting role at this stage. As with the defence, goaltending should be a strength for Sweden this year.
