The few years before that we're pretty bad years for us and the player material was very lopsided in favor of Sweden.
This year it's closer than it's been in many years. We're still underdogs due to Sweden having the mental edge and superior depth, however Finland's high-end talent is equal to or even slightly better than what Sweden has to offer. I still wouldn't bet my money on Finland winning but there are some good reasons for optimism.
And eventually the law of averages dictates a victory for Finland at some point, so I see Finland and Canada hooking up in the Gold medal game... and it will be a doozy, but Canada wins 4-3.
RNH wins best forward MVP 7 goals 10 assists. )))
Can't wait for this tournament to get crackin.
