USA is one of the favourites, but what about Sweden? I think they have more offensive talent than USA. During 5 Nations tournament in February both Sweden and Finland won this USNTDP team, so it's not like they are unbeatable. Most players from Team USA have played together for 2 seasons and it shows. Other teams might improve their teamwork and chemistry as the tournament advances. Plus the way the play-off rounds are played (one win to advance), pretty much anything can happen there.
