    Strangely enough almost all of our Olympic calibre players seem to be playoff bound, but I have hopes we might get some Trashers, Stars and Devils players, and hopefully some really unexpected star player to give us a legit shot at the gold.

    Sure, Lindbäck at least. Give him 10 more games. But I feel Mårts will come up with the golden words come spring "we have good goalkeepers on this side of the atlantic ocean". Omark and Harju seem ok as well. Maybe even Engqvist and Johansson.

    ^ Youngest WC team ever, but strangely that feels like it would be a pretty darn exciting team to watch.

    We can probably get good young players in Backlund, MP, Omark to build around along with Weinhandl and MÃ¥rtensson up front anyways which is a decent start. Although Calgary has a shot at the playoffs. Johansson, OEL and Rundblad is good start in the back end aswell along with Gustavsson in net with potential upgrade in Lundqvist.

    Only fear with this core is that they're pretty soft to play against, so we would need to add some grit and size. Maybe a couple of Hörnqvist, Hjalmar, Grossman, Murray & Hedman. If we can't get more NHL forwards add in the best forwards throughout the year in the ET-tournaments.

    Lets be realistic though, MÃ¥rtensson and Weinhandl are what, 30? Not old, more like prime. Each time I watch them play in KHL they leave me impressed, Weinhandl is outplaying team mates like Afinogenov and Sushinsky. They're our two best European forwards, and by quite some margin. Knowing the tournament is played on big ice they'll be there, whether it is on a primary role or 3rd line. And they should.

    I think that you really should considerate putting SEL players on the team.
    Will WC 2011 be played at big rinks?

    Some of the players in SEL are by the best players in the world when it comes to "big icehockey". Wallin, Junland, Thörnberg, Umicevic perhaps. They are all good players to fill upp a roster

    Sorry, but you must be out of your mind if you think that about those players. I mean, they are decent, but...

    If first round of Stanley Cup was over today we could have these players to chose from: (european players, non-playoff players and projected first round losers). Players in bold are with us from day one. Quite a strong team even if I doubt Alfredsson or Tallinder will find motivation to join.

    Steen - MÃ¥rtensson - Weinhandl
    Thörnberg - Davidsson - Alfredsson
    Nilsson – Persson - Jämtin
    Lindström - Warg - Pääjärvi
    Huselius - Krüger – Zackrisson
    Axelsson - Berglund - Hörnqvist

    Johansson - Ekholm
    Rundblad - Hjalmarsson
    Karlsson - Tallinder

    Enström - Oduya
    Larsson - Bäckman
    OEL - Kronwall S.


    Lundqvist
    Lindbäck
    Gustavsson
    Liv
    Larsson


    -----------------------------------------------------------

    Thörnberg-Davidsson-Weinhandl * Nilsson–Persson-Jämtin * Lindström-Krüger-Hörnqvist *Huselius-Steen-Zackrisson * Pääjärvi-Landeskog

    Karlsson - Enström * Johansson - Ekholm * Rundblad - Hjalmarsson * Larsson - OEL

    Lundqvist/Liv/Larsson

    We don't need any NHL players!

    If we're considering these goalies we might aswell consider Markström, Lindbäck and Enroth depending on situation.

    In the moment I wrote this Lindbäck was projected to WIN first round in Stanley Cup an thus not be available. And Markström and Enroth are sure talented but not proven on NHL level just yet. Liv and Larsson has been very good in Europe this season. The situation might be that one of the NHL goalies are either Gustavsson OR Lundqvist if he is available. Both Markström and Enroth is in the picture, though.
