He was always among the first to break up even the fastest opposing rushes and was one of the few players to be able to create things offensively given the pressure all forwards were facing last night on either side of the rink. I found him to be one of the best Swedish players, as well, to give you at least some sort of affirmation. No idea why so many Swedes are this hard on their players after making it all the way to a medal that seemed like a very long shot before the tournament started. Seemed like a really great team effort to me.
Well, thanks for the post, I started going back through the Swedish games to see if I had the wrong number or something...I was getting kind of worried.
I still stand by what I said about him, I liked him, no big deal. Maybe the pharmacy just mixed up our crazy pills, vipers...
