I was half trying to jinx the US, but I agree with you!

Sweden only has one honest high talent, and that's Lindholm (and he's the same age as McKinnon). But up front they have great depth and a group of players that can play the game at a really high tempo.

The defense is flawed as hades but has been picked to support the above style.

We doesn't have a established presence in the net.

My bet is OT and Sweden is really good 4 on 4 and our goalie is great in SOs, so I do think we got a shot. But if the puck don't bounce our way, things could go in favor of the US in a hurry. Like I would basically rule out Sweden winning by 3 goals, but I wouldn't be suprised if the US won 6-1 or something...
