    Finland has played such a boring style of hockey in this tournament that the Swedes have my full support in this one. Here's hoping Sweden can break the Finnish trap!

    I don't like how either of them plays. But what can I say, it is effective hockey. I was hoping for Russia-Czech final.

    i second that. if it's anything like every other finnish game "what a final it will be" should not be the phrase used to describe it. not to take anything away from them as they've clearly worked very hard and had superior coaching, but man they have been brutal games to watch.

    Regional rivalries are always the best.

    :clap:

    (As a Canadian living in South Korea I'm excited by the prospects of a final with more at stake than just a gold medal.)

    And I'll be cheering for the team that's more feisty. :handclap:

    I think that in terms of purely great hockey, the Czech-Russia game will be better. Nothing against the Finns or Swedes as they both deserve to be playing for gold, but the consolation game will probably be more entertaining.

    I'm not sure if many of you remember Finland - Sweden match up's of the past.

    They are always, and I mean ALWAYS, great games.

    I'm sorry....I didn't realize I wasn't allowed to give my opinion.

    Finland's game plan may be good, but it sure as hell is boring to watch.

    I've never seen russia or czech show up for a bronze medal game. Why do you think this game will be any diffrent? Even if the final won't be the most pretty game, it will have tons more feeling than the Czech-russia game. And I for one would rather see passion than pretty plays

    I am afraid we are going to see a couple of blowouts in the medal games. Russia big over Czech, and The Golden Generation big over Finland. Finland has to score a couple of quick goals on Sweden to keep it a close game.

    Well I don't plan on setting my alarm for 8am but I sure doubt it will be a great game. I'll watch the 3rd ;) These 2 countries have a rivalry I hear and hopefully this game is an exciting unforgetable game!

    If you prefer figure skating and soccer rather than speed skating and American football.
