    That's a coin flip. Two teams that play a similar style, constantly on a puck, constantly pressing, controlling the pace of the game. This will come down to whose leaders and goaltenders will come up big in clutch. Don't think this will be decided in regulation.

    What a matchup. Two beautiful teams that play 5 on 5 so well. I'm not sure there is a poor skater on either side.
    Sweden has 1 medal in the last 5 years despite always sending crazy good teams. They are due for a bounce. I'm not 100% sold on Russian goaltending as both have had some really questionable moments in key games.

    Having said that, I loved watching the Russian's play and Romanov is my favourite D in the tourney. If Russia wins I won't be surprised at all. You could play this match 10 times and it'd be 5-5 after that. To Sweden's disadvantage is the fact that they haven't faced adversity since Day 1 against Finland. Russia has dealt with a lot of adversity and might be more battle tested.

    I'll put the over/under at 5 slashes to Sandin's wrist though. Now the whole world knows this pisses the Swedes off (rightfully).

    3-2 Sweden even though I secretly want a Russia/Canada gold rematch.

    Hoping for a Russian win and Canadian win on the other game so the best rivals in international hockey can battle it out for Gold.

    Hoping for Russia just because I want Sweden to remain Finland's little brother in terms of recent junior championships and so on. So Sweden doesn't need to win anymore championships in a while but it feels like Sweden is pretty strong now so I think they will be in the final and probably beat who ever is there against them with that 4 hours of rest advantage.

    I wonder if Bragin will deploy Podkolzin to try and shutdown tournament leading scorer Hoglander.

    Sweden has the best D-core in the tournament by FAR! 5 first rounders i belibe play on that Defence.
    Russia is going to have to get greasy goals. Individual efforts and finesse isnt going to be good enough in this game.

    I think Sweden takes it 3-1.

    Would be just as happy though to see Russia pull through.

    De är klasser bättre än Finland, med den skillnaden att Finland råkar vara bäst i världen på att tråka ihjäl lag som egentligen är mycket bättre än dem?

    I sense some salt :)

    This is why I don't read Hockeysverige anymore. Their grasp of the hockeyworld and therefore; reality has slipped the past few years. Who in their right mind would say that any Junior NT is "klasser bättre än Finland" is beyond me, the depth and top talent of the finnish Junior NT:s the past 7-8 years is second to none. How you miss that is beyond me.
