    There was already a thread on this, but what the hell!

    1. Russia
    2. Canada
    3. USA

    For the first time ever, I seriously doubt Canada will win this tournament. I don't even know if I should rank them as high as a silver.

    I think Canada is being overhyped and its bad policy to cut two top scorers in the WHL. :dunno:

    Who cares about whos "overhyped" it doesnt mean these players arent gonna go in there and take the tournament.... I think on paper they have the most talent... and probably the most heart... they have the element of junior superstars which only a couple of other countries can boast...

    Look at their line up.. its incredible.. hopefully this translates to the gold.. I think it will..

    GOLD: Canada
    SILVER: USA
    BRONZE: Russia

    I don't really see the love-affair with Finland. There's some high-end talent there, but there's also a pretty significant drop from top to bottom.

    I think many (to some extent me as well) like the fact that they have such a huge team and many guys that play physical. I actually don't think there is such a big drop. However, I am not too sold on their defense.. but that is another thing.

    I think many here are underestimating Sweden here, IMHO they have the 2nd best D of the tournament and a good goalie pairing.

    For anyone to tip sweden to finish 8:th, then he really doesn,t
    know a thing about the swedish team this year.
    Canada is going to top group B, then sweden and finland is
    going to qualify for the quarter-finals.
