I'll probably survive, more worried about my new tv...
That thing always creates conflicts between man and woman.

We have to give alot of credits to Sweden who are getting alot of our players and let them play in SEL.

Remember that they will play against Russia in QF on our national day. They are extremely motivated and have alot of selfconfidence. I will say we have between 20-25 % chance to beat them. We need luck and our goalie must have a really good day.
One of the biggest factors in the improvement is players going to Sweden to develop

Grunnlov/Constitution day, not independence day. Independence day would be September 23 (the Karlstad accord).

Reporter: Mr.Bilyaletdinov, what can you say about team Norway?
Bill: A very solid team. They have 3 NHL players by the way.
Reporter: They have none...
Bill: LOL.

Not a word-to-word translation, but the feeling is there.

Well he is not totally wrong. We have 3 players that have played in the NHL (Tollefsen, Holøs and Thoresen).
