    3-2 OT Czech or 5-2 Sweden. I think we have a shot at breaking them the first 30 minutes, with some luck. Our chance is breaking Hnlicka. But if this game is thight the Czech will win it.

    The Czech haven't played well so far, but the only reason for that is that they don't belive that they can play a offensive puck possesion game and play well for the entire tournament.

    With the new rules its really dangerous to play a defensive game and trap like the Czech have. Before the tournament I would have called that a suicide-tactic. The fact that the Czech have made it this far is proof of how good they are. In terms of talent they are maybe the most talented team in the tournament.

    Look at their defense, 6 really competent players, defenitly atleast at the same level as Tre Kronor. Kaberle is a world star. Skoula is good offensivly and a better fit in international hockey. Hejda-Krajchek is a really steady 2nd pairing. Michalek and Richter are rocks on the defensive side. They have a great mix of offensive and defensive D's.

    Up front they have allot of really low maintainance gamewinners. They are like a rattlesnake. Czech have one big star up front, and one big star on defense, they also have really good depth, maybe the best on defense in the tournament.

    I am scrade sheite for this game. Sweden had a really tough game late last night, both physically and mentaly. The media in Sweden who have seen a Czech team wave the white flag and surrender, only to then pull a Trojan horse and win, belives that there is no way Sweden will loose this game are only asking Swe players stuipid questions, like "can you loose tomorrow?". That could be a major misstake... :shakehead

    As always:

    If the Czechs get the first goal their chance of winning is 75%. If the Swedes get the first goal their chance of winning is 60%. No one plays counter attack hockey better than the Czechs.

    This game will be offense vs. defense. Since many of our defensemen are so much better in the offensive zone than in our own, it's no secret where we want to keep the puck. And the Czechs will probably let us.

    The Czechs are tricky. I really don't like how our media is handling this, treating it like a done deal. The czechs have a great deal of talent (more than we do, actually) and only let in one goal against Finland.

    If Sweden can get a couple of quick goals then they have a good chance of winning. The advantage will swing in favour of the Czechs if they score first or can keep us from scoring in the first half of the game. The Czechs also have the advantage if the game goes to OT.

    Aside from Canada, Czechs are the worst opponents tactically. Other posters have pretty much given descriptions of how the game will evolve given who scores first.

    It's so ironic, that the Czechs are typically stereotyped as the least "hearted" of all Euros, yet they manage to go pretty far in national tournaments, and almost irrelevant of what team they field.

    Because of his amazing slapper, which hits the net 1/100. 99/100 he puts the puck over the net.

    Hopefully a tight and entertaining game. Feeling a bit optimistic so I will predict a 4-2 Swedish win, with the last goal being an empty netter.
