    I don't agree with Belarus behind Germany and USA being so low. I',m almost sure that the first 3 places will be taken by USA, Canada and Russia (USA being third). Seems like Finland and Sweden are nothing special this year but the Czechs are good and they will end up 4th.

    I believe Canada's the favorite to win gold, but there's no way the U.S. finishes that low.

    To be honest I would have loved a best-of-7 games final between Canada and Russia.

    I give them a lot of respect! I'm not sure they are good enough to go to the finals, but they might beat the US for the broze medal. Man, don't know why but I'm pretty sure that it's going to be RUS-CAN in the finals and USA-CZE for the broze...

    I want to say Canada, but Ovechkin and Malkin by themselves really scare me. Whether its Crosby or Ovechkin or someone else, I hope we see a performance like Forsberg's incredible WJC in 93.

    I can't see Slovakia falling that far behind. They have one of the best teams ever for this tournament.
