If anything, Larsson was sort of the bellweather for Sweden. When he was on (and a lot of it was during PPs), they looked good but at other times he looked out of place offensively despite chemistry with Silverberg.

Google translate:

Färjestads JVM winner Jonas Brodin, 18, passed the final screening for the World Championships.
He can now take place next to NHL defenders like Niklas Kronwall, Niklas Hjalmarsson, Erik Karlsson.

- It is really good d's and it's players like them u have watched over the years, says Brodin to HockeyExpressen.se.
Five D's plus Staffan Kronwall. It may be the head coach Pär Mårts selection for the World Cup premiere against Norway.

When thinning the squad after the loss against US Färjestads Jonas Frögren was taken away. HIFK's Daniel Fernholm and MoDo's Jonas Ahnelöv were the other two D's that were removed from the Tre Kronor World Cup squad, which now consists of eight D's, including five NHL players and KHL player Staffan Kronwall.

18-year-old Jonas Brodin still have a chance. Brodin still remains as does Brynäs Mattias Ekholm.

- It's been the most fun ever to be part of this and to play these games, says Brodin about the games before the World Championships.
- I think the first two, Switzerland Matches, I didn't really play my game. But in the Czech Republic, I think I played well. Although today was an okay match.
- You have to look at what D's are here. I have shown what Im capable of, I can't do anything else, says Jonas Brodin, who seems to be developing for each match he plays with Tre Kronor.

He almost never make mistakes, and he lifts his game when the tempo is turned up.

- You learn a lot to be with these guys. And when you've been here for a while u get quicker as the pace is faster than in SEL, says Jonas Brodin.

**** you soccer football haters, the game is awesome, Euro 2012 is coming up and my boys are going to correct the mistake and win it all this year.

Also Brodin being a Manchester City fan is just wrong,

if you're not a manc you're a ****

Still tho he's 18 years old for him to be this good is impressive. turning into a better and better pick every day

Soccer is a really fun sport to play (especially if you play goalie like me).

I really do not enjoy watching it on TV though.

Soccer is really fun to play.

It's almost as terrible to watch as baseball though.

Not knowing much about Brodin at the draft, to now, I think he's going to make this team next year. It's very logical that he would thinking about it. He's been playing against men for two years now, and is going to continue to play against high competition in the WC, and there's an obvious need for a defensemen like him on our blueline.

I think he could almost be a lock to make our team next year depending on who we sign via FA.

Playing soccer was the only time in my life that I ever did the splits (which is pretty sad considering I've played as a goalie in hockey since like 3rd grade). I was really young, probably around six years old, and it was a rainy day and the grass was really slippery, you can figure it out from there.

How boring a football match is depends on the competition and the stakes. Watching a World Cup elimination match is rarely boring. Watching men's college soccer is rarely exciting.

The last women's World Cup had some of the best drama I've ever seen in sports.

But seriously, the last world cup for men and women have both been pretty awesome from a USA POV.

I tried watching other nations play in the world cup and just couldn't care.

I guess it depends on how familiar you are with the players and rivalries.
