The first line... Forsberg was bad, Rakell was bad and Karlsson was REALLY bad.. I think they need to do some line swapping.
Our D... I have nothing to say really, they lack toughness, some of them really looked scared out there. It's going to be hard games against the top teams if they wont just stand in the way and atleast try to play the body.


Switzerland played a really good game and I wouldnt have objected the slightest if they won the game. Perhaps this is a wake up call for the reigning champions..

How was Collberg? And who got the player of the game?

I think, we should not overrate the group stage game. Props to Swiss btw. Good game for them.
Not disagreeing with that at all. I'm simply making a statement about this game in particular: the effort stunk.

He was okay, scoring a goal and having one in the post I think. Should use his shot so much more. It's deadly.

Sandberg for Sweden and the Swiss goalie

I do not doubt Christian Djoos will develope into a good offensive defenseman one day, but he really need to work on his defensive skills. He looked really confused and out of place from time to time in his own zone tonight. Not to mention he could do with some more mass.

Poor effort from Sweden today, but I'm not too worried. It's the beginning of the tournament, and last year's team had the same kind of game. Switzerland played a good game as well, well done

Good defensive effort by the Swiss once again. The Swedes didn't seem to want any part of it. Silly question, what's the predominant language spoken on the Swiss bench?

I guess german because everybody speaks it. Most players also speak french but i think the coach doesn't

German, English, French and Italian. In importance order.
Instructions or coaches speeches would be in English and German.

(this is a logical estimate)

Terrible game from us. Some players (think about you first line!) needs to shape up! Also, is it just me or is Sörensen a really bad skater?
Defense looked shaky at times aswell.

Good game Switzerland, and congrats to Sweden - it could easily have gone the other way without a bit of luck.

It appears no team is going to run away with Group A. The Swiss are a competitive team.

It wasnt just Sweden that played "bad", it was a good effort from Swiss. I was impressed, they got a team that is pretty good. They have a chance to get points out thier games against Finland and The Czechs as well.

I think Sweden played below what we can expect from them, but I too, was impressed by the Swiss. Tight defense, good goalie and they made a good job slowing the pace of the game when the Swedes tried to raise it.

The Swiss had some great wheels out there. I was surprised they kept it up despite playing back to back games. They are very determined when any opportunity arises.

I continue to be unimpressed with Forsberg. Such natural physical ability and yet so inept in execution. There is a reason why two years straight now, the much less heralded Collberg does better. He doesn't possess Forsberg's talents, but he is so much more effective in using what he has.

Obviously, I mainly look at the Swiss players. I really liked Richard, Bertaggia and Martschini on offense and Müller/Kukan on D.

Nyffeler was solid in goal, except for the game tying goal. My impression that Nyffeler is better than Boltshauser has been confirmed in this game.

I was a little bit disappointed by Andrighetto, but that was mostly because of high expectations. The two players I liked least in this game was Simion and Marti (I actually thought Marti was terrible on D today).

He had 2 completely useless linemates today so the fact that he actually managed to get something done by himself is a bit of a miracle.
Collberg is a good player and has outscored Forsberg lately in junior tournaments. Keyword here being junior, because at senior level where it really matters Forsberg is a lot better.

hey didnt get to watch the game today. i read some pages back. i see there is a common trend of some bad swedish defense. do people who watched it think that this was more a a SUI coming out party and showing that they are a good team or was it more of a look past game from sweden and SUI capitalized. thanks in advance
