    I haven't gotten much chance to watch Sweden this tournament, but I still think it's Finland's to lose.

    I think Finland might actually lose this one. I want to call it a post-great-game syndrome. Russia played its best game against Canada then lost to Finland, which was somehow has to do with a fact that Russia might have been emotinally exhausted after win in the q-final. I think Finland might be a victim of this as well. Just imagine how Sweden can actually redeem itself after the loss to Belarus 4 years ago. I think swedes will come out like lions and can outplay finns.

    Does anyone know where I can check the outcomes of the last games between Sweden and Finland? If I remember right, Sweden won most of them. As I like both teams I want Finland to win this one since they have played a somewhat weak WC.

    Finland has won all of them.

    WCH 2003 doesn't exist, it's a myth.

    If Sweden can't overcome their defense then we don't deserve the goldmedal.

    :cry:

    Let me just say that i was part of that 3.03% that voted for Finland before the olympics. I was mocked and ridiculed for choosing Finland, now I feel vindicated.

    Finland will win the gold.

    sweden will win. despite the fact that the finns employ that boring-*** trap, sweden has faced that system with succession (czechs), so i'm guessing they'll win if they can play the same as they did with the czechs.
