2010 (Possible team) What will Team Sweden look like in Vancouver 2010. Here are my thoughts - it really does not look too bad for The Defending Gold Medal Champions. But 4 years is 4 laps around the sun and a lot can happen in this meantime. Some of the old guys might still be playing - but it is really up in the air at the moment. If some of the old timers are honestly motivated, still playing good and likewise healthy - they could be a useful addition. But only if that is so. Otherwise - there will definitely be a major changing of guards. And there will be some unknowners popping up that could make it in 4 years. Swedes are generally speaking late bloomers - there may be some talent that boosts before Vancouver. The pressure on The North American squads will be harsh - to say the least. I do not think they will settle finishing 7th & 8th in The Olympics again - especially not on North American Ice (Scandinavia was #1 & #2, eASTern eUROPE #3 TO #5 & The Alps #6 in 2006 at Torino !!!). It will be great and interesting to follow. Toughness and gritty play (not stupid penalties or fighting) will be more of an issue in 2010 - believe me,,, The refs will be much more home crowd oriented as well... Pushing for a USA - Canada final I would presume... OK Goalies Lundqvist Tellqvist Holmquist or Heino/Lindberg Defense Kronwall - H Tallinder K Jonsson - M Ã–hlund C BÃ¤ckman - A Lilja Possible additions D Murray, J Oduya, N Wallin, D TjÃ¤rnquist, Kronwall #2, J Boumedienne, Grossman, Fernholm, Last resort - Old timer N LidstrÃ¶m Forwards Swedish Red Wings Zetterberg - M Samuelsson - Franzen Stars of 2010 line Sedin - Sedin - Steen Bad boy line Huselius - M.

M Weinhandl Not too Bad actually. Russia could be deadly tho - if they get a team shrink and a good coach.
