de la Rose fit in much better in the more physical games we played against Canada and USA. In games like this he's not of much use to this team. We'll see against Finland, but I expect him to be more important in games like that.

Glad for Wennberg, he should get more TOI. On the other hand, sorry for Punnenovs, he will come out with save percentage below .90 after such a great game.

1:5 the score makes more sense at the end of the game, though we played quite well. I'm really surprised at Sweden for not blowing as out. Imagine how many minutes Sweden played on PP.

Nevermind.

Lindholm was the best player on the ice IMO.

Why is Bluegers, as far as i can tell, not playing on the 1st PP unit? At least he looks to have some poise with the puck on his stick.

Thought he was great. Worked extremely hard, had 2 assists and hit the post once. Too bad he didn't score. Karlsson also needs a goal.

Lindholm was imo the best player for Sweden though, seen over 60 minutes.

Good third period. The first half of the game a bit meh of course, but we hope that we havent seen the best of this team.

Thoughts on Sweden.

We have really poor defencemen, especially defensively.

Lindholm is basically a clone of Nicklas Backstrom. Perhaps a little feistier and quicker too.

Forsberg is a bad team player offensively, he doesan't use his teammates, instead he tries to do everything by him self.



Team Sweden has unbelievably bad shots. Like we say in Sweden, they're all "easter leafs". How many of the shots missed the net? How many times did they fan on open chances?

I'm not a Forsberg fan either. He has great fundamentals but as you indicate, he doesn't play a team game.

I have noticed a trend with how Sweden have played the last few years in the tournament. They have shifted more towards the strategy of shooting from everywhere rather than shooting from high percentage positions. Is that a stamp of a Ronnberg coached team or is a shift in philosophy in Sweden?

Any thoughts on Collberg's game? Was he dominant or mostly invisible? Thanks

Somewhere in between, pretty good but not exactly dominant. He showed yet again that he has team Swedens best shot.
