I remember back in the 90's when Sweden won a string of Silver medals. Almost every other year many hockey writers picked Sweden to win but they just fell short. The '94 WJC comes to mind. Forsberg and company lost to a Canadian team that was predicted to finish out of the medals. Since then Sweden has done terrible at this tournament. I just wonder if it is due to a lack of talent, or if it is due to a lack of confidence in their junior program. Whatever it is, I hope that Canada isn't bitten by the same bug.
