    5-3 Sweden. They look like they're ready to break their 30-year drought. Playing with skill, speed and intensity.

    Nah. We have the worst team in the last 3 years - and this year we even have Paajarvi, Josefsson & OEL in the NHL, and Landeskog probably won't play either.

    We looked really sloppy against the Czech's, our defence looked like utter crap.

    We lost the exhibition game 4-1, I predict the same result in this game.

    This tournament is ice cold back in Sweden, zero interest.

    I guess it's hard getting any hype in the media when you play the majority of your games in a practice rink.

    Are all teams stuck in practice rinks in the middle of nowhere?

    I think this "blue collar" Canadian team will "suprise" us with a pretty dominant 5-1 win and we can finally cut the ******** about Canada not being the favourite.

    I'll be at this game rocking my blue Maple Leafs Schenn jersey. Hopefully I'll get on TV and Gord will make some comment like "I hope he doesn't have any waffles."

    Swedes can't score more than one goal on Canadian teams, and our goalies and defencemen always play sub-par against the North Americans too.

    Lehner needs to be even better than he was against Russia, if we're going to stand a snowball's chance in hell.


    It'll be interesting to see how big a part the refs will play. It's like Wikegård said; the only situation I tend to have much to say about the refs, is when we face Canada.


    I hope this game will prove me wrong, but I'm not holding my breath.

    Sweden will win with 10 - 0...... if my dreams come true. But they wont. Tho i belive that Sweden will win. 5 - 4 or 5 - 3. Its about time Sweden kicks Canadas ass in this tournament.

    Yes, i dont like Canadas juniors....

    And thats a good thing. Previous tournaments, everyone looked like "Oh well, Pääjarvi will fix this, I'll just play like a ****** meanwhile".

    When you don't have those "stars" people take on a lot more responsibility themself.

    I don't really agree that it's that bad, I mean the main stories in the sports section atm are regarding the WJC and accoring to a vote at Aftonbladets website yesterday, the WJC is hotter than both SEL and the NHL ATM:

    Btw; aren't these groups pretty skewed?

    Group 1
    Canada
    Sweden
    Czech Rep
    Russia
    scrub

    Group 2
    Usa
    Finland
    Slovakia
    Switzerland
    scrub

    All teams in group 1 are better than the second best team in group 2, and three of the teams in group 1 is as good, or better, than the best in group 2.

    Doesn't seem like a fair lay-out.

    ^It's decided by previous tournament result. It's not supposed to be "fair".

    IIRC, the group layouts are determined by how the teams finished last year. 1, 4, 5, 9 is in one group and 2, 3, 6, 7 is in the other. The screwed groups was caused by Switzerland upsetting Russia last year. If you switch Switzerland and Russia, the groups wouldn't be so scewed.
