    Sweden is 8 for 13. 61%! That's a pretty damn impressive PP :handclap:

    And the only good stat about sweden so far.

    there pp looks like Naslund/Forsberg/Sundin/Alfredsson/Lidstrom, I'd actually call that underachieving lol. And the only good stat? What about them being undefeated and leading in goals scored?

    That's just pure luck. :D

    I agree that the power play has been superb! But the way that the goalies has played so far, even great PP can't save us. :dunno:

    Peter Forsberg will be great againt the Czechs, I'm totally sure... hrm... he must be... have to be optimistic. Play him with Zetterberg and Nilson. They gonna dominate. Let Näslund change linemats, and play him with Axelsson and Jönsson while Påhlsson, Johansson and Holmström run the fourth line.

  8. If not for sweden's poor goaltending they could have been a great threat.

    They would win the tournament with Martin Brodeur in the swedish goal.
     
  10. Maybe.

    If we're gonna lose, I don't think it will be because of the goaltending.
     
  12. I think it will. I saw the goals he sometimes let's in, some of them are just horrible!

    Only one goal was really something you can blame him for. On the other goals he was screened and the defense played horrible. He's the one that ends up looking dumb though.

    Yes, it's funny that Sweden is possibly the best team in this tournament on one end of the ice and horrible on other. But still, Tellan was very shaky even with the pucks he stopped.

    On topic, the Swedish PP is vulnerable on to short-hand goals. Kind of follows from having only one dman on the unit.
