    The champions! With no NHLers in Olympics i think this tournament will be very good, alot of NHLers. The fact that it is played in Denmark is good for Sweden.

    I think you'll be adding Zibanejad and Lundqvist. It would be cool if Jesper Fast got a chance, also. He's better than Hagelin.

    Would love too, but it seems like swedish national coaches dont like Zibanejad and Fast.

    Imo, if NHLers where allowed in Olympics, Zibanejad should have a spot.

    EP was snubbed for the National team in a tournament w. No NHLers. What makes you think Sweden will do a 180 and choose him for WC when nhlers are available??

    Here is the list of Swedish NHL forwards:
    Eliteprospects.com - NHL Stats 2017-2018

    You will notice that pretty much all players in the top 30 won't go to the WC due to playoffs/age, with a couple of exceptions. Players below the top 30 are hardly upgrades over what we already have in Europe. Also factor in that a lot of olympians will decline. Pettersson probably has a better chance of making this team than the Olympic team given how his season has progressed, this time he will also get the opportunity to showcase himself at a WC camp.

    Because he just won the SHL scoring title as a 19 year old, has the most points among U20 players for that league (a feat that hasn't been reached in nearly 40 years and probably not likely again for some time), and he also played in the World Juniors a month before that. Many were actually confused and thought he should've been on that roster.

    Also, he's 19 years old, and has a whole career ahead of them. The others, that might've been their one and only chance.

    the wc camp is 4 games against denmark and slovakia and 2 euro hockey tour tournaments. i would like to see young fresh players tried in wc camp/euro hockey tour...could you imagine how pointless and boring it would be with möller, lindström, sjögren, axelsson, lundqvist, kronwall, erik gustafsson etc? This is what it should look like:

    Dahlen - P.Lindholm - E.Pettersson
    V.Olofsson - Ejdsell - E.Larsson
    Grundström - Händemark - N.Sörensen
    Nygård - L.Johansson - Lundh

    Martinsson - Dahlin
    Pilut - J.Persson
    Djuse - N.Andersson

    Does Dahlen have a realistic chance of making it?

    Let's just send a U21 team to make up for the Olympic dinasaurs of Sweden.

    Sprinkle a few stars like Karlsson or Lunkan, although I don't think they would want to go.

    He just got destroyed today with an open ice hit. Looked bad.

    His defense partner, Brannstrom, seems to have taken over as the qb on the #1PP unit from the games I've seen. He's looked real good the past few weeks

    I'd like to see Tedenby get a chance. Maybe not the most effective guy but the Olympic team really lacked that type of player.

    Emil Sylvegård? Could be a good powerforward for the 4th line.

    If one shall give Grönborg credit for something it is making NHL player say yes to WHC, but I still do not think Karlsson, Zetterberg or sedins will be there, they have a habbit of saying no. I have Pettersson on the team, I know it is unlikely, but I personally would still have him on the team with current available players.

    Only based on teams that are not playoff teams right now.


    Silfverberg - Backlund - Rakell
    Fast - Zibanejad - Lindholm
    Omark - J Larsson - Nyquist
    Berglund - Rask - Pettersson
    Åberg

    OEL - Larsson
    Klefbom - Lindholm
    Hjalmarsson - Edler

    Yeah I kind of agree, but we have those type of players in NHL (that are not in a playoff team right now), like Åberg, Rakell, Fast, they are fairly similar, but better.

    Omark was by far our best player in olympics, is easily our best player outside NHL.

    Olympics is not same quality like WC.

    And yes he is, but he never produces against top-nations in WC, why would he do it this time?
