    What would be the strongest possible Team Sweden right now?

    Alot of things have changed for Sweden since World Cup 2016.

    Sedins and Zetterberg are gone.

    Players like Kronwall, Steen, Loui, Kruger, Söderberg, Hagelin, Hjalmarsson is not good enough anymore.

    Team Sweden right now imo:

    William Karlsson - Bäckström - William Nylander
    Forsberg - Wennberg - Arvidsson
    Rakell - Zibanejad - Elias Lindholm
    Landeskog - Backlund - Silfverberg

    OEL - Karlsson
    Hedman - Ekholm
    Lindholm - Klingberg

    Lundqvist
    Lehner
    Markstrom

    Pettersson is probably already better than Alex Wennberg.

    How close does Jesper Fast come to making this team? There can't be many better options for the 4th line.

    I am just happy we are getting rid of the old slugs and are able to use our younger, faster players. It was tragic seeing some lines being like cinderblocks on skates in 2016 (Loui and Sedins especially). I want to see Forsberg/Arvidsson/Nylander a bit more together, we saw some short flashes of it in the WC this spring. I think they will be absolutely great for the NT the years to come
    And that defence :naughty: If someone called me in 2010 and told me how good it would be in 2018 I would laugh in their face. The skill in there is unreal, I can't imagine we have ever been able to field anything even close to it before

    I really like Ekholm, better option than Lindholm? Think we should switch system and play 3D 2F to fit the best talent on the rostet

    Nylander Bäckström
    Hedman Karlsson (in a QB role) Ekholm

    Forsberg Zibby
    Lindholm Klingberg (QB) OEL

    Karlsson Arvidsson
    Larsson Dahlin Larsson

    Yes imo.

    Think Pettersson will be the 2nd line center after this season.

    Right now:

    Forsberg - Karlsson - Arvidsson
    Rakell - Bäckström - Nylander
    Landeskog - Zibanejad - Bratt
    Wennberg - Backlund - Hörnqvist

    Hedman - Karlsson
    Lindholm - Klingberg
    OEL - Ekholm

    Lundqvist
    Lehner

    -
    After next season I could see something like this:

    Forsberg - Karlsson - Bratt
    Rakell - Bäckström - Arvidsson
    Landeskog - Pettersson - Nylander
    Wennberg - Zibanejad - Hörnqvist

    Hedman - Karlsson

    I mean... Bratt definitely surprised everyone last season, but to think that he will be a national team first liner after upcoming season is a far, far reach imo. Should not under any circumstances split Forsberg & Arvidsson either.
    Even Silfverberg & Elias Lindholm have a better shot than Bratt i would think (might even throw Nyquist into the discussion).

    It's much less of a reach to assume that Dahlin will take a top 6 spot on D.

    Maybe not these lines but I think the players in OP's lineup is pretty spot on. I think Hörnqvist is on the team right now though, over Lindholm or Silfverberg. And I think Pettersson, Kempe and Burakovsky will start to make a great case for themselves this season.

    Dahlin is on the team sooner or later if he just reaches parts of his potential, but as of today quite a bit to go still. Hope to see him in the WCH in the spring.

    I'm big on Bratt so that's why he's there :laugh:, but yeah as it looks like right now his confidence has taken a strike after that second half of last year, if he gets his confidence back he imo should very well be the #1 RW(which isn't a very deep position for Sweden.)

    I have a really hard time seeing Dahlin as a top 6 guy after a year, if he was from a country that isn't Sweden(or Canada) he probably would be.

    He is a good player. But i dont see how he is better than Landeskog, Backlund, Silfverberg.

    I think he’s getting there. I think the last couple seasons he’s put himself squarely in the best bottom six players in the league conversation. Great player to use on a fourth line.

    My try before reading the thread:

    Forsberg - W. Karlsson - Arvidsson
    Landeskog - Bäckström - Nylander
    Rakell - Zibanejad - Hörnqvist
    Steen - Backlund - Burakovsky

    Ekholm - Karlsson
    Hedman - Lindholm
    OEL - Klingberg

    Rakell is superior to Landeskog obviously but he and Zibanejad were dynamite together last time they played. Landeskog also adds some toughness to line 2.

    Euro Hockey Tour is just 1 month away, the team should be named in 2-3 weeks.

    What i want to see:

    Videll - Lander - A.Petersson
    Lilja - Josefson - Brodin
    J.Davidsson - Rasmussen - Sörensen
    Tedenby - Händemark - Wingerli

    Holm - Hersley
    Lööv - Junland
    Djuse - Bengtsson

    Niklas Svedberg
    Johan Monster Gustavsson
    Oscar Alsenfeldt

    Videll have been good in KHL for years, and now he has 18 points in 11 games, he has exploded. Lander and Andre Petersson is doing a good job in KHL.

    second line is dominating in SHL.

    Sörensen and J.Davidsson are intresting players.

    Tedenby and Wingerli off to a good start in SHL, 2 very speedy players with Eric Lindros in the middle.

    Djuse and Bengtsson should be tested, they are top defenders in SHL.

    Holm, Hersley and Junland are producing lots of points in KHL/NLA.

    Lööv seems to play a good physical defensive style game for Jokerit, since Bertilsson and Ahenlöv seems off its time for Lööv to step in.

    We have Lindbäck, Lasse Johansson, Hellberg, Enroth.....we all know what they can. But i hope this tournament is for Svedberg and Monstret and Alsenfeldt.

    Omark and Axelsson will not play for tre kronor anymore:

    i have different lineup now, the start of the season so far have changed things. elias pettersson is for sure a man for this team. landeskog and elias lindholm should both play in top 9,

    Forsberg - Pettersson - Arvidsson
    Landeskog - Bäckström - W.Nylander
    Rakell - Zibanejad - Lindholm
    Silfverberg - Wennberg - Karlsson

    OEL - Karlsson
    Hedman - Ekholm
    Lindholm - Klingberg

    Lundqvist
    Lehner
    Nilsson

    Almost nobody has Elias Lindholm in their team, he is for sure a man for this team, his start in Calgary is not by chance, finally Lindholm have quality linemates. He will end with 60-70 points in NHL, and he got grit. He would be perfect with Rakell and Zibanejad.

    I am not sure about my 4th line.....but yeah all 3 of them are good players.

    Goalies....Nilsson or Markström...? Hmm...

    Extras (13 & 14 forward and 7 & 8 dman) i want Backlund/M.Johansson and N.Hjalmarsson/Strålman.

    we need a best on best tournament right NOW, this team is as good as canada, usa, russia.

    I'm pretty sure I'd have William Karlsson at center.
