We are watching the games from a Swedish perspective. I don't even care/take notice what players the other team has on the ice. It's not being disrespective towards other teams just watching what I want or don't want to watch. Our job is to win the games, if the other team is playing good or bad is not up to us.

SWE #60 has a great 'stache. A true contender for the Adam Malysz Trophy.

About Paajarvi. I don't buy in to the hype surrounding him. Sure, he's fastm works hard and has 5 goals during these WC. But... he's weak on the skates (as in easy to know off the puck), has average stickhandling, not very good balance and core strenght. On top of that he's only an average passer who doesn't really seem to know what to do when he can't rush in to the zone and release his wrister.

He was flat out bad against both Denmark and the Czechs last night.

Then again, Edmonton is a brutal team so he might give them a little help if he decides to join them next season.
Well... He's still been the best swedish forward together with Persson.

Many of the players have moustaches because of a campaign in Sweden supporting the fight against prostate cancer.

Hahaha, thats so true. It really is great/horrible

Gotto like how this game is reffed so far. Yeah it's not very physical but the refs are letting them play, which is great.

1-1! Barta! Very nice goal, imo. And the crowd erupts

Looks good for Germany. Germany are a big surprise this year. The game last night against the Russian was almost a masterpiece.

Must've missed the tripping, #87 in Germany. Yeah great the refs lets them play too bad it's when Sweden outplays Germany for 2 full periods. They better not call anything on Sweden if Germany gets any pressure whatsoever.

Sweden had one good goal scorer, but he left the tournament after the first game...in which he scored a hat-trick.

More like a dialectical thing, than an impediment. Not all use German 1600-century pronouncement as much as it is done in Stockholm to name the prime example of German influence of speech. Swedish is full of such examples of pronouncement done in different ways. "Fat" L:s being another.

It's not a speech impediment.
Some people pronounce it that way, and they do have the dictionaries to back them up (look it up in SAOL if you like).
It's just one of those words, like kex and chäx.

I don't understand this. Before injuries destroyed the Oilers, they were one of the better teams in the league and definitely a playoff team. They are not by any stretch of the imagination a "brutal" team, particularly if Khabi comes back next year. That said, I think they could use help, and I think Pääjärvi is the guy to do it. I, as well as most Oilers fans, believe he will be quite good next year. He has blinding speed and brings pictures of Forsberg up in my mind. He needs work on his finishing, but he'll be great. And as I write this, Anderssön scores!
