But hey, win the group and you're in the semis.

A lot of talk about the defense but not much talk about the goaltending. Sweden has questionmarks in net and no clear starter.
I think the defense will look fine until we face one of the NA teams. All the guys are used to handle pro forwards by now, but I suspect when facing Canada they won't know what hit them.

I hope Dansk is the starter. The games with Erie I've been able to catch he's been standing tall despite being bombarded.
