    Americans as slight favourites for me. Best looking/deepest roster on paper.

    It seems the game between Slovakia and Russia will be played in Zilina, Slovakia.

    Countries have shared hosting before, but just having one game played in a seperate country ... Has this happened before? Should be a good atmosphere for the slovaks though, and Zilina is close to the Czech border.

    It is a pre-tournament game, that’s probably why it was able to be scheduled more flexibly. Cool that they were able to get a real home game in for the SVK team

    We won last year, you just can't count us out. We also won the last tournament played on the big ice. More reason to take us seriously.

    Since when is it about only talent?
    Best TEAM wins it every year. A hot goalie can steal multiple games as well.
    You’re entitled to your opinion obviously, and your own prediction, but Finland will have as good a chance as anyone else.

    IIRC, Finland won Gold in 2014 with 3 drafted forwards only.
    I wouldn’t count them out so easily.

    Nope. Hockey is Canada’s sport.

    As an avid Oiler's fan, I'd rather watch the Czech's lose 6-0 to a Big 5 team then watch Raphel Lavoie score a hat trick in the gold medal game. Don't get me wrong... hope Lavoie becomes an elite scorer in the Oil Top 6 but country first!

    If they had Jack Hughes they would have been heavy favourites.

    I was just taking a look at the odds for some games:

    Czech vs Germany

    Czech = 1.16 or -625
    Germany = 5.0 or 400

    Shouldn´t this be much closer?

    Helminen is the wild card here for us Finns. He could very well be the ticket to fast exit but you never know.

    I think considering our depth and talent we could win Gold but are not the favorites.

    Maccelli and Kupari need to deliver if we are going to have a chance.

    Slovak games seem to be sold out too, with the exception of some VIP tickets still up for grabs.

    I'd like to see Sweden finally win. It's been too long for these guys. So many good teams with no results.
    Maybe this will be the year when they're not expected to even medal.
