    I guess i will get i started.....
    Gold Canada ( a little payback)
    Silver Russia
    Bronze USA
    4th Sweden
    5th Finland

    I think Canada will win with fleury taking top goalie again, either coburn or suter taking top D and ovechkin taking top forward. Canada is bigger and has more scoring which i think will tak them over the top. the ameicans goaltending is up in the air and russia is always good but have a new goalie. Sweden isnt good, same with finland.....i wouldnt be surprised to see anthoer team beat finland.

    Team Finland compansates the lack of talent with great team effort, excellent coaching and the extra boost from a fanatical home crowd. Hannu Toivonen surprises everybody and is the best goalie of the tournament.

    One thing about the Russians. So humble...

    All I would say is Canada will have their youngest most inexperienced team in years so I feel concerned for this. And will White be 100 percent? Probably not. I am not expecting great success this year for Canada but I will still watch every game.

    1. Russia (I sure hope not! :mad: I want Canada to win...)
    2. :yo: Canada :yo: (Again, I hope they go one spot higher than this.)
    3. Finland (home team, ya know--) :dunno:

    Canada seems to be a little inexperienced this year... Oh well, I'm hoping they have a good tourny anyway. I left out USA just because (... argh! I'll think of a reason) and Czech (they like haven't won since Havlat's junior days, which is Quite a while ago).

    I'll wait until the final rosters are out but right now I heavily favor Canada for gold this year.
