Johansson Backstrom Eriksson

Steen Berglund Silfverberg
Hagelin Zibanejad

Hjalmarsson Karlsson
Kronwall OEL
Edler Brodin
Hedman Ericsson


My god that team is frightening especially the d core and goaltending. Do Kronwall, OEL or Edler play the right side? I think Hjalmarsson is the best d partner for Karlsson because he is probably the best defensive d man on the team, his size and mobility are very similar to Methot in Ottawa which has been a dream partner for Karlsson.

I attempted to format the lines based on chemistry and positions these lines make sense to me but perhaps not to someone who is more familiar with the team. I left Hornqvist off because I felt his skating isn't nearly as strong as Zibanejad or Hagelin and on the big ice he could potentially be more of a liability?

I honestly think on the Olympic ice this is the best, most balanced and well equipped team heading into the tournament. They are very very good defensively and they will run 4 really good lines that will be sound defensively while scoring. They are seemingly the only team without any weakness.
Sedins will play with Eriksson. I would also prefer to see Z as LW with Backström, with Alfie as RW.

Steen - Berglund - Franzén would make a great third line.

As for the fourth line, im not entierly sure about how I wan't it to be, Landeskog is a lock for me, but it would also be interesting to see Krüger, Backlund, Stĺlberg, Hagelin, Silvferberg, Zibanejad or even Söderberg (if he does well in Boston) play.
