Note, this is my view of things. Sweden. Our nightmare opponent(s) are not Canada or USA. In fact we usually play well against these two nations. Our real nightmare is the Czech Rep and Russia. Sweden usually struggles more against other euro teams than North american teams. (Belarus, never forget ) Canada. Canada's nightmare opponent must be Czech Rep and Sweden. Canada has a habit to play really well against the US and Russia. The czechs and sometimes the swedes could cause trouble. Russia The russian akilles heal is simple. It's Canada. They usually struggle against them. Russians thrive playing countries like Sweden and Finland Czech Rep. The Czechs like playing against Sweden, and they like playing against Finland. their nightmare opponent is Canada, and sometimes Russia. USA The US has a hard time against Sweden, Canada and Czechs. However they like playing finland, and sometimes Russia. Finland Finland is the real joker in the game. They sometimes thrives on Sweden, sometimes not. They can be very dangerous against countries like Czechz and USA. Their nightmare opponent is definitely Canada. What do you think of my analysis?
