  1. I think that them, along with all countries, could have made some adjustments, to more proven international players:

    Henrik Sedin ----> Michael Nylander
    Daniel Sedin ---- > Magnus Arvedson
    Samuel Pahlsson ----> Nicklas Sundstrom
    Nils Ekman ----> Mikael Renberg
    Christian Backman ----> Kenny Jonsson
    Henrik Lundqvist ----> Johan Hedberg

    It may be my Duck fan bias showing, but Sami Pahlsson was a very good pick. He is a horse on defense, and does well in international play from what I've seen. He's the ideal 4th line center, if not 3rd line.

    I love what they did.

    I don't watch some of the players, but I especially like their goaltending selections.

    Arvedson and Renberg are both out with long term injuries. Arvedson will probably even retire. Sundström and Hedberg haven't played good enough to be on the team. Nylander and Jönsson are the debateable ones..

    Agree, Jönsson and Nylander are the only ones that should/could (depending on who you ask) be on the team among those listed. Even though I'm a big fan of Arvedsson, he was never close to a spot on the roster..

    Yeah, we could need some more offensive depth, but the swedish coach doesn't think that way. He want two offensive lines and two defensive. With Forsberg, Sundin, Näslund, Alfredsson, Modin and Zetterberg we have a quite good top-6 anyway.

    Not me, I don't like anything Sweden does in hockey. Well, apart from the quarterfinal game in Salt Lake. :lol

    That game only? How about the World Championships 1986 when Sweden scored two goals late in the game forcing a tie? :)

    Didnt Mats Sundin score two goals against Finland in the last minute sometime in the early 90s to tie that game as well?

    Are you really that enthralled with the goaltending? I just don't see it.

    Wich I could have watched those games, can't imagine how happy I would be if I watched this live. The feeling when Sweden scored on Finland in this years Champs, or last years quater vs Finland. It's so fantastic. :D

    I was unable to watch last years game, so I listened to the Swedish Radio, but I don't think it really mattered. The radio transmission from approximately the finnish 5-1 goal and onwards was absolutely brilliant. I don't think I've ever listened to better radio. Granqvist almost disintegrated when Forsberg scored the equalizer, lol. It still happens that I listen to parts of it over the web - the entire game can be found on SR:s homepage.

    I know that they are not the best players in the world or anything, but I am still pretty shocked at how little respect the Sedins get in the world of hockey. They are definitely good enough to be on the squad in my opinion.
