pfff darkhorse? They are far and away the best. Just look at the names, you should just know no one can compete.

That's my Wild opinion, I'm surprised no Swede has brought it up.
I don´t know much about the other goalies in the tournament but Gustavsson is almost on par with our recent WJC-goalies Lehner and Markstrom, should be among the best.

whoa, easy now... Poland are good don't get me wrong, but they are by no means ranked #2 in this tournament.

I heard Poland get their hockey athletes from discus throwing and Javelin... that's a pretty dangerous combination

I was going to predict Mikael Granlund doing some awesome play and Pierre going absolutely bonkers, but then I remembered that Pierre left TSN.

I said in this thread that Canada wouldn't be a gold medal competitor this year. Nobody wanted to believe me

Granted I thought the world of Finland. They were as close as you can be to the gold medal game without making it though I have no idea what they were thinking in that shootout, not using Pulkkinen was fairly stupid...

People thought I was crying about Canada not going to be gold worthy this year, check out the Canada vs. Russian thread for tonights game. Now that's some crying.

Not really. Pulkkinen hasn't been impressive in the so for a long period and Donskoi on the other hand has been atleast fairly good for Kärpät. In hindsight, sure you could have tried Pulkkinen who has been a big part of fairly meaningless goals and physical play in the Sweden-game instead of Donskoi who has been a part of a three individual player line playing poorly, but you never know with these.

I'm a big fan of Pulkkinen so I wouldn't have hesitated in putting him in. I suppose I can see why he wasn't put in but like I said, I would have had him in there for sure. I felt bad for Granlund. That shootout will haunt him
