I like the game that the Europeans play.
I will say that with universally respected players like Forsberg and Lidstrom gone from the NHL (and Alfedsson will probably retire soon) the image of Swedish hockey carried to NHL fans will be the image of guys like Edler and the Sedins. As I'm sure you know those three play on the divingest, cheatingest, whiniest team in the NHL .... some of that was bound to rub off.
Thank God you still have Zetterberg ...
Anyway, congratulations to Sweden. Unfortunately I couldn't catch the game but it sounds like Canada didn't deserve the win.
