Finland and Sweden have a good chance to snach a medal too.

The Swiss could upset Canada but noone else per usual.

The Czechs will be kind of an underdog, but of course not without chances.

If the NHL starts things changes also.
In 17 years with the round robin and with QF, SF, and medal games, only once have 3 teams from the same pool placed Gold, Silver and Bronze, which was 2002. In the pool they finished Finland, Canada and Russia, but the medals result were the opposite with Russia grabbing gold and Finland Bronze.

I expect one of Sweden, Finland or Czech to medal. I'm predicting Finland.

Swiss upset of Canada in a lockout season is a pretty bold prediction...especially since they aren't even in the same pool. This could only happen in a medal round, but since you had Canada winning Bronze, this is makes zero sense.

I'll be cheering for the Czechs. They came close to a medal game last year.

If the NHL starts, it will bring Canada and Russia closer to the next four teams, but they will still be the favorites.
