Looks like there will a whole lot of no's this time around too. Team Sweden will seriously need some NHL-players to be able compete in this tournament.

It will be good fun to see the young kids play, but when not even the quality euro-veterans (like Weinhandl and Magnus Johansson) that usually glues the team together will come this year, the roster looks mighty thin. In todays win against Germany the team played awful, I realize that there will be very few guys that will earn a spot in WC, from todays roster, but still.... You can't really call that a "Tre kronor"-team, they where horrible. Ok it was a young team (12 player born 1988 or later) and they had a bad game and so on, but well still there needs to be some kind of minimum standard for the national team.

Hopefully we will start getting some positive news at some point otherwise this WC could be a painful experience.
