The Sedin's played with Weinhandl every minute of every game. That's the absolute worst fit I could think of them playing with.

A) The worst forward on the team.
B) A soft dangler-passer-scorer. Meaning exactly the same type of player like the Sedins but 10000 times worse.

If they'd played with... Eriksson, Hörnqvist, Franzén, whoever, I think Sweden's tourney would have gone way different. Bengt-Ĺke was a useless coach that waaay overstayed his welcome.

And them being bad in the playoffs is so untrue it borders on a myth. They weren't that good the last few games against Boston and that's all most people ever saw of them in the playoffs. They have been the best players on every Vancouver team in the playoffs since 2008. Them not coming through has not been the reason that Vancouver hasn't won, they just haven't had good enough secondary scoring and goaltending.

Edit: They have been absolutely dominating LA tonight. Absolutely dominating. And that's with Daniel coming back from a loooong injury break.
