We had this defensive corps thread a while ago and no one objected that it really was between Sweden's and Canada's D. The poll went Canada's way (even if I voted Sweden as the question was about 2014 and I expect some big strides. But as someone wrote: 2018 might be the year for that Swedish D-corps):

Best defensive corps. for Sochi 2014, Sweden or Canada?

Taken the production last season on the projected D corps there isn't much difference really.


Canada can field an insanely talented team. But seen in relative terms - as it is a duel situation - I would say that Canada have had even stronger teams relative the opposition (not relative other iterations of Canadian teams) and that has not always been with a gold medal as the outcome.

And Russia on home ice will not give way all to easily. Be sure that many aspects of Russian hockey already have geared up towards the Olympics in a more dedicated way than other nations.
