The reason he is not drafted is because he had his breaktrough this year and 5'9'' swedes never get drafted. To judge this forward crop from where they where drafted and disregard the comments from swedish posters that watch these players all the time, seems a bit strange to me. Of course it would have been great to see Zibanejad on this team, but as perry2perry keep telling you, we actually have a more skilled forward lineup than last years team that won gold. This team perhaps lacks a Johan Larsson though, a great leader.

It was always a bit strange that it was the swedish 1992's that won the gold considering the 1993's and 1994's have always been considered more talented, especially when it comes to forwards (well Landeskog is a big exception).

Nothing strange really. Remeber how good was 1988 team?
