Sweden's roster looks incredibly balanced, and they're absolutely a contender to win it all. Russia has a great looking squad, and has the home ice, but I don't see them winning it all. Teams like Finland and even Switzerland will make things difficult. But I think we've got the second or third best team on paper, that might have the right balance to win it all.
