What can we expect from the squad going to Sundsvall? About 90% of the Sundsvall squad making it to the final WJC squad? The tourneys where Ronnberg selects 50% non-locks should all be behind us by now, right?

B.t.w. Im heading to Sundsvall to see some of the games. Any other HF forumites headed to Sundsvall?
I took the time to look up last year.
- 18 guys(included both Åberg and Boyce in that calculation) on the November squad made the WJC last year.
- Sundström was also on the November squad initially but got injured so he couldn't play there.
- Brodin was called to play with Tre Kronor in Karjala Cup instead.
- Out of those on the November squad, Johan Alm as the 8th D was cut to make room for a third goaltender(Johan Mattsson), Gunnarsson was cut for Brodin. On forward, Lillieström-Karlsson, Mannberg, Nermark and Pa. Vesterholm were cut to make room for Sundström, Rakell, Rask and Rensfeldt.

Considering a third goaltender had to be added, Brodin was with Tre Kronor, Sundström was injured, and Rakell, Rask and Rensfeldt were in North America(all five likely to make the team) it was pretty much as close to the WJC squad as it possibly could've gotten.
