I think the top 4 teams are fairly even. You're not sending every player you have in the age group - you're sending 23...and Russia, Sweden, US, and Canada can put together roughly equivalent rosters (although, obviously, with varying strengths and weaknesses).
I'm not surprised that the US made it this far - i thought they'd get the bronze at least - and as the tournament went on you could see they were very strong and also very consistent. I hope they win tomorrow.
I'm a bit surprised by Sweden (I thought Finland might do better than them) - but that's not because of skill - it's because I thought they'd end up getting killed because of the injuries they'd suffered and the loss of Zibanejad.
