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.
Ok, then Sweden ends 2n and US third.
