One thing I'd recommend you guys to take a look at is how the groups are divided between Stockholm and Helsinki. I'd say we got the far easier one for once.
Let's compare, seed vs. seed...
Canada or Russia? - Both are tough, but I still rather have Russia. Especially since they won't apparently be having nearly all of their superstars.
Czechs or USA? - Not that the Yanks will be pushovers, but I still take USA, no question.
Switzerland or Slovakia? - Wash. The Swiss play a very tightly-knit game and will probably be b**ch to score against. The Slovaks have some good individuals, but won't be as organized.
Norway or Germany? - Germany. The Krauts can pull an upset if our guys are asleep, but Norway's just as organized and fit as the Swiss, if not even more so.
Denmark or Latvia? - Wash. Danes have far more upset potential, though.
Belarus or France? - France, please. Belarus' trap has always been a hard one for us. Even more so now when we're a little short on skill.
Slovenia or Austria? - Here's where I'd rather have Slovenia, but our guys really should go to themselves if they lose to Austria, Vanek or no Vanek.
