This team should be better really, especially if everyone is available (noone playing in NHL or injured). The forwardcrop looks really stacked this year, defense looks good, and goalies ok.
It was a bit strange that it was the 1992's that won gold for Sweden since it never really been regarded as a especially strong yeargoup (besides Larsson and Landeskog that didn't play in that WJC anyway). I guess good coaching, good team spirit and leadership abilities in players like Johan larsson won us the gold.
If you go by raw talent the 2010-team looked much more impressive on paper, but they only manage a third place finish.
