How important is it for Sweden to win both the WC and Olympics in the same year? It seems to me a little bit suspicious that the Red Wings and Rangers are already out, with Lundqvist and Lidstrom playing horribly, and that the Flyers are on the brink of elimination despite two admittedly heroic games by Foppa. Even Modin has been horrible in this post season. Alfredsson had 4 points in 5 games whereas Heatley and Spezza had 10 each. I think the Swedes need to realize that the Olympics are more important than the World Championship in hockey terms, they've already won that and that should be enough for that core group. If they care more about winning the World Championship then they do about their employers I think that they should leave their North American clubs. Even if you don't believe that Swedes are deliberately losing in North America, you have to admit the timing is a little odd, especially considering that players like Lidstrom and Lundqvist were among the best players in the league during the regular season.
