    I do sure hope Swedish players are as overconfident as a few Swedish posters in this thread. Would put us in a much better position right off the bat

    I do think it's a difference between kids with pimples in their faces, sitting behind a computer and a keyboard and payed professionals playing in the best league in the world. I mean, a lot of them play the Buffalo Sabres every year, so most of em are used to basement teams

    Sweden usually suck when playing in the middle of the day. So they should start better this game.. but who knows.

    The ice quality in Denmark at the end of a warm day is pretty terrible, though, which surely helps Latvia more than Sweden. The puck is harder to control, passing plays are more difficult to execute.

    Going by this thread, the overconfidence by a nations posters goes both ways.

    Swedish coach when asked about this being an easy win and how they handle not underestimating Latvia: "First off, you're the one who's underestimating them, not us." Same sentiment comes from a lot of players.

    I will say this; Klingberg & Rakell have only gotten gold while playing for Sweden. Coincidence? Yeah.

    I am usually on a side of an underdog. This time makes no difference!

    Heja Sverige!

    It doesn’t matter on what level you are, all that matters is scoring one more goal than your opponent.

    Latvia has no chance. Sweden is a juggernaut.
