Russia's top 6 are going to shine, this should lead to the NHL returning to the Olympics in 2014 because if they don't I think they will have a Russian mutiny on their hand which they just can't afford.

I think Canada is going to buckle under the pressure and the Swede's have an advantage in their pool to be fresher come the medal rounds. Canada will finish 4th. The Czech's never get the respect they deserve and they might not have Hasek to steal games for them anymore their depth is unheralded and should be tought to play against.

I like the US team but I think they are too young and it will show but if Burke does the right thing and plays Quick over Miller it could be a different story.
I kind of agree with you here. Canada is the overwhelming favorite. But, I think they have so much talent that the team will come through. The Swede's definitely have an advantage. Plus they do have some winning experience returning. I wonder if Lundqvist will stand on his head again?
