    We are having trouble developing goalies lately.

    The only Canadian NHL starters right now 28 and under are Martin Jones, Jake Allen, Darcy Kuemper and Matt Murray.

    Happy to see Larsson playing so well.

    Last season was a bit tough for him with injuries and the loss of his father. Big expectations for him this season coming up.

    Not a starter, but he's promising!

    TIL Dansk is an NHLer, and to top that off, an NHL starter, Forsberg isn't a starter either.

    Only 28 & under NHL starters we have are Lehner & Markström.

    Er, am I missing something?

    They can't pass Canada into 2nd for either golds or total medals?

    EDIT: Oh, passing Czechs in total medals.

    Nope, Finland had a weird tournament and Canada never meshed together.

    Yeah, the Russia and Soviet Union(which I disagree grouping together) is misplaced, makes it seem like it's currently #1, also disagree with grouping Czechoslovakia with Czech Rep. Especially when Slovakia doesn't get the same treatment.

    Most teams thats "supposed" to win have a hard time against defensivly minded teams. If the preassure dont work . Its easy to get goals against. And get frustrated. I am realy anxious about tomorrows game.

    There's always a chance to get frustrated, but in the end the team that dictates usually wins. I don't think Switzerland is quite that team anymore to be honest, but if they sit back and let us carry the play I like our chances a lot. We win at least 8 out of 10 if that's the final tomorrow.

    Fun fact, only three players on this squad were on last year's squad; Klingberg, OEL and Everberg (who has barely played). Speaks well of how much depth we've accumulated that we can make the finals two years in a row with two almost completely different rosters.

    I might remember this incorrectly but didn't Finland hire tons of Swedish goalie coaches 10+ years ago to improve that aspect in Finland?

    Seems like we have tons of good trainers - but most aren't home. I'm cautiously optimistic about our current development in the goalie front, though.

    True. Hockey program is very well working there. NHL teams are using it too. Swedes has had a long and successful history of hockeyprogram. Kanada norway swiss finns germany using alot of swedish teachings. Swedes should be proud.

    Swedes has not many great goalies themsleves though. Kinda wiered but they alwsys has a strongteam

    It will be closer than the average fan thinks. Its one game and Switzerland can not be more motivated. The yellow wall will be an enormous preassure if we play crappy. So first goal is specially importent this game. Dont think Sweden played nowere near of 60min great hockey this far.

    Yup, very happy. I questioned if he should be replaced after the Latvia game, he responded with a shutout. He looks ready.

    That's Nilsson, who still has his father and has had no big injury problems as far as I can tell.

    Klefbom - Karlsson
    Dahlin - Hjalmarsson
    Djoos - Nemeth

    Lehner
