I see a big drop off from last year, but after winning gold with a great squad, that shouldn't be too unexpected. Finns and Czech have decent teams/talent this year as well. That pool won't be as easy as some may think.
Losing Klefbom and Brodin hurts more than losing Zibby. Sweden have several forwards just as good as Zibanejad. Both Forsberg and Collberg will be better this year than last year. E.Lindholm will do well too, you'll see.

It will be a tough and intereresting WJC with no clear favourite. But I dont think Sweden can manage to defend the gold. Obviously I still hope they do, that would be awsome.
