Reading the list of players that has allready turned this team down, makes me pessimistic about what kind of team that could be put together.
Assuming Omark and Backlund will be sent to the bleeding AHL-playoffs :/, and that there will be a whole lot of no's:
I just couldn't figure out what d-men to put in the lineup. Hopefully there will be some more d-men from NHL, but they probably turs down the offer. Fernholm is not a good option, Staffan Kronwall looks completely out of shape, Sebastian Erixon and Magnus Johansson are injured, the Skellefteå youngsters are good but have looked a bit too shaky in the playoffs for my taste. Ekholm looks out of shape too, but meh you got to pick someone.
From what i've read Berglund and Steen are longshots too, but well Sweden got to send some kind of team to this tournament, hopefully they show up. Otherwise im hoping that the old wjc-crew still got some loyalty to Mårts.
