I'm really hoping for another Canada-USA final, but it's a crap shoot these 1 game elimination tournaments. Could be a Canada-Russia final (unlikely) or a Sweden-Canada final (probable) or a Sweden-USA final. (the most likely scenario) I've been predicting a USA-Sweden final for about 2 years now. I still don't think people are listening. )))
Unless something is structurally wrong with Kesler after surgery I'd have to think he's healthy by next season. Of course that presumes he doesn't try to rush his comeback again and reinjure something.

I think Canada, Russia, Sweden and the US will all have legitimate gold medal aspirations. I just hope that we get a World Cup after this tournament so that we don't have to wait four years for top level international hockey!
