Throughout the tournament * = Poor tournament ** = Decent tournament *** = Good tournament **** = Very good tournament ***** = World class tournament * Ronnie Sundin Good enough for the SEL, good enough for the World Championship even, but definitely to slow for the top players in the World. Fredrik Modin Picked it up, but considering he was more or less invisible for 4-5 games, he gets one star. ** Mikael Samuelsson Skated hard, but I expected him to be more physical and too bad he did not fit that well with the Sedins. Was not that noticeable while playing with his Red Wings team mates either. Stefan Liv Difficult opening game for Liv. Did okay without shining. Mika Hannula Performed according to expectations and brought some speed. Still, HedstrÃ¶m would obviously have been a much better fit. Daniel TjÃ¤rnqvist He was praised for his play, but I though TjÃ¤rnqvist had a pretty average tourney. Did not look too comfortable while in the control of the puck. Christian BÃ¤ckman Really picked up his play in the medal round, but was brutal in the group play. Could not pass the puck at all, but looked much better when it really mattered. *** Daniel Alfredsson Sweden's leading scorer with 10 points in 8 games. Still, Alfredsson was not very good, nor dominant, but important and valuable because of the goals and points that he scored. Niklas Kronwall IMO, Kronwall will Sweden's #1 defenseman in 2010. He has got it all. Was good in the two games he played, but were also called for several penalties. Peter Forsberg Looked incredibly slow on his skates most of the tournament. Looked somewhat faster in the final three games though. His passing is still world class IMO, but I still think it was obvious that this was not Peter at his very best. Mattias Ã–hlund Looked good until he got hurt. Not as physical as I would have wanted, but still nothing really to complain about. JÃ¶rgen JÃ¶nsson All those constant JÃ¶nsson bashers, clearly do not have a clue. Another very strong tournament by JÃ¶nsson who was superb defensively, did probably not have a single mistake in the tournament, while also doing a good job in the offensive end. Only problem I had was with the coach letting JÃ¶nsson play on the PP. There were better options there. Mats Sundin Very obvious that Mats is not the player he was 4-5 years ago. Not as fast or dangerous with the puck, still very strong though and an exceptional leader. Henrik Sedin Did not receive enough credit in this tournament IMO. Was very good defensively, especially on the pk-unit, and good offensively as well. Probably the slowest skating forward on this team, together with his brother, but he has the smarts and the technical skills to make up for that. Daniel Sedin See above. Imo they had pretty much identical tournaments, only that Hank got two goals more. Mikael Tellqvist Did very well against the Slovaks. Henrik Zetterberg Was just superb in the final. Overall, not so great to be honest. Looked hesitant to challenge defensemen, but improved during the course of the tournament. Will probably be Sweden's top player in the next olympics. **** Per-Johan Axelsson I think PJ improved throughout the tournament and in the medal rounds he was very good at what he does, which is to take out the top opposing players, skate hard and kill penalties. Always does a great job on team Sweden. Tomas HolmstrÃ¶m The heart and soul of this team. A top role player in the world and thanks to HolmstrÃ¶m's screening, Sweden scored several goals. Niclas HÃ¤velid Underrated. Excellent defensively. Henrik Lundqvist Gets an extra star thanks to his performance in the final game. He let in 2-3 mediocre shots in the tournament, but was terrific when it mattered the most. That is really what matters. Lunkan is a winner. ***** Nicklas LidstrÃ¶m His best tournament ever with Team Sweden. LidstrÃ¶m along with Kenny JÃ¶nsson were the top defensemen on this team. Superb offensively, superb defensively. Nuff said. Samuel PÃ¥hlsson Was arguably Sweden's top player in the last WC tournament and in this tournament, he was the top forward. An amazing defensive player and Sweden's top physical player in this tournament. Sad how little recognition PÃ¥hlsson gets in the NHL. Kenny JÃ¶nsson Lol, a Swedish second tier league player being arguably the top player in the tournament JÃ¶nsson was amazing, although I still consider LidstrÃ¶m slightly better. A rock in his own end.
