I put them on equal footing with Lundqvist/Backstrom.
I would put them only behind Brodeur/Luongo. And even then, not hugely so.
Backstrom is a Finn, not a Swede. It will be Kipper/Backstrom for Finland. I'd take that over Thomas/Miller, I think the Finns have the best goaltending in this tournament (Rinne as the #3). Sweden will be Lundqvist/Gustafsson. I'd take Thomas/Miller over that. The way Luongo and Brodeur have been playing recently, dating back to last year's playoffs, I'm not sure I wouldn't take Thomas/Miller over that too!
