Russia has top forwards, very good goalies and they can now play really as a team
Silver is the color of Finnish lions
Swedes lose to Russia in semis and beat Canada in bronze game
Canada fails to get the players to play well as a team
Canada will win gold. Russia may match/surpass them slightly for top offense, but they don't have Canada's depth. Sweden will lack the offensive punch that Canada/Russia have and will get bronze or fall just short of a medal.
Canada won't care if they aren't in the final? Well, that's the most ignorant thing I've heard all week.
maybe, but they would be so f***ing frustrated if they would lose the semi-finals that I dont think they give the 110% they need in the game for Bronze...
and the game for gold at the wc2008 comes in my mind: I was cheering for Canada but after two they played if they wouldn`t care anymore...I still get angry when I think of Nashs stupid penalty...that was in Quebec
