    Sorry stupid question but when Rasmus Sandin has started represent Finland?
    Last time when i checked Sandin's eliteprospect.com profile he was Swede.
    And Alexis Lafreniere is Canadian not Swede.

    Haha I'm aware. A lot of copy and paste from your original post, I'm bound to miss something.

    I like yours the most... you have 2 Czechs on the All Star team and us with a bronze!

    I will agree that if we win a medal (and I seriously see no hope personally) than Dostal will be awarded Best Goalie. He might have to score a few goals and play D as well though.

    I award you the best (meaning: funniest) post. You win! Seriously though, I am neutral on Czech...so I hope they do well (except against USA).
