If I was Pär Mårts I'd go with 3 scoring lines that spilt ice-time evenly between each other and 1 energy/checking line with reduced ice-time. I'd put Zetterberg and Eriksson on the same line and try and match then against the oppositions top line. Eriksson - Berglund - Zetterberg!

Great hockey teams almost never run with two checking lines, most NHL teams do because they simply don't have the depth to run 3 scoring lines effectively, only really good NHL teams with a lot of forward depth (like the 2010 Chicago Blackhawks) can do it. That isn't as much of a problem for a great national team like ours, and teams like Canada and Russia can, and most likely will be playing with 4 scoring lines in Sochi. We certainly have the scoring depth to do that too, but if we did we would be sacrificing our defensive play. [/B]
