Yesterday Peter Forsberg was interviewed by TV 4 and quite surprisingly he attacked Canada.
- They decide and run things their way in the hockey world, he says.

The subject was brought to attention in the Czech Republic during the World Championships last spring, when
Rob Niedermayer's dirty hit on Forsberg was shown.

- Had any other player, from another team than Canada done the same thing, it would have cost him 5 minutes
and a game misconduct, Peter Forsberg says.

That was not the case and Canada came back after being under 0-2 and won the WC gold just like 2003 in Finland, when
Sweden also lost the final to Canada.
The attack on "Foppa" was the turning point, according to many experts, and people have said that the Swedish
players should have marked directly. With their fists.
- I don't understand the talk about us being to kind. It is just silly to go and take a penalty after an incident like that won, Forsberg says.

He feels that Canada gets a lot of advantage in the big tournaments.
- They determine the practice hours, they run everything, Forsberg says.
