    Yeah they’ve been great.

    It really doesn’t matter who you put with Wikstrand right now all the defensemen on the roster except for him are used to big time minutes in the NHL.

    Ros
    3 plus: OEL, Ekholm, Larsson, Lindholm, Wikstrand
    4 plus: Klingberg

    What?...

    Again I thought this was an excellent game by the D and GK, but gun to my head I put 3 plus on Klingberg (thought he struggled a bit on the D side) and Wikstrand, and 4 plus on the rest of them.

    I only saw the second half, but Forsberg had several good defensive plays and some good hits. I'm sure he will get rolling offensively with this game under his belt. Latvia should be a good starting point.

    My instinct tells me Forsberg - Backlund - Arvidsson are more suited for each other though, and Kempe with the quists.

    Quick notes:
    - Impressive win, both teams played well.
    - Ekholm must play a lot in upcoming games, what a horse.
    - Zibanejad is usually not this good right?
    - Forsberg line needs more IQ. Too bad we don't have better center options.
    - Would like to see more shots from Rakell line.

    Thought Klingberg struggled quite a bit this game.

    Kempe was useless. Should not have 3 plus.

    It's interesting that what this team lacks is what traditionally has been our biggest strength -- skilled playmaking two-way centremen.

    Did Ros drink while watching the game? Klingberg was not our best D this game.

    I like to add that we should setup our D for more shots. Forwards often kept cycling the puck looking for the perfect pass. As you say, either shoot more from forwards or let defense take more shots.

    anders nilsson is nr 1 goalie now.

    backlund should play with forsberg and arvidsson.

    IIRC Ros has put Adam Larsson at 2-3 plus' every game so yeah, I mean he's in Denmark, only natural that he's drinking 1 or 2 or 15 beers.

    I must be the only one unimpressed with kempe. Not sure what everyone sees in him. Might as well play Lias Andersson on his place.

    I think that’s what the post you quoted meant; that Kempe has been unimpressive. He’s struggled for sure. The problem is Sweden not having enough natural centers with any offensive talent, because you can’t really have Larsson, DLRor Lias (not ready yet) center Forsberg and Arvidsson and expect them to be effective. Therefore you go with Kempe who actually is offensively talented but lacks smarts and/or experience to be an effective center right now. It’s a bit of a gamble but it’s better to try and jumpstart him as a center with two really good wingers and that way get three good lines than just kinda wasting it. Because I have a hard time seeing Nyquist and Hörnqvist getting him going since they’re not as dynamic.

    It depends. Can he stay healthy?

    If he can, he's very underrated. But then he has stretches where he gets injured, and struggles after he returns.

    Fantastic, he and Zibanejad look like they play on the same line normally.

    Zibby might be the best Swe player of all so far though.

    Zibby is filthy with the puck. But what had me raising eyebrows was his forecheck and backcheck. What a warrior.

    There are still people that take Ros seriously? I gave up reading his stuff years ago.

    Safe to say he'll start in the quarter finals (unless injured).

    Well he has Finnish blood so not a surprise. ;)

    He could've been ours.. It wasn't that far.
