I hope Finland to win the gold thou but to be honest i don't see that happening, yeah anything can happen but my money would still be on Sweden.

Canada, Russia and USA are the other "main" contenders for Gold but i still think Sweden is the strongest one.

My Top 8 power rankings for the next Olympics:

1. Sweden
2. Canada
3. Russia
4. USA
5. Czech
6. Finland
7. Slovakia
8. Switzerland
In a short tournament, you can go all the way with a hot goalie. I am a Canadian supporter, but i must say that Canada has shown in recent memory to struggle on the big ice. That is why even though i believe Canada will win, putting my bias to the side, i think Sweden and USA because of their strong goaltending should be the the favourites above Canada. Hopefully Luongo/Price/Crawford can erase my doubts before Sochi. However with King Henrik Lundqvist and Jonathan Quick, i have both Sweden and USA above Canada, with Russia at 4, the Finns at 5, and the Czechs at 6. However, like said previously, in a short tournament it will not be surprise to me any of the top 6 nations win Gold.
