Sweden really needed players like rakell, Karlsson, Forsberg anf Collberg t step it up when our fragile D got injured (ill hate you forever Hall). Only Collberg showed up though..

Zibanejad wasnt the most important guy, the D's who sets up the play and defends were the ones we missed. Unfortunately the low passing quality killed the team in this final. Hopefully we can bring a strong swedish team next year!

You can't say that, but sure it would have been a different game.

Great job team. Gibson was stellar.

**** it, you guys still beat Canada and Russia.

Plus Forsberg isn't that bad. I think he'll be at least like a Johansson in the future.

On top of that we lost two other players just before the tournament started.

Of course they would've made a huge difference for us.





But....we saved our worst game for the final.

Conrats to the U.S. a well deserved Gold Medal. TSN said that there are 9 Canadian Hockey League players on the U.S. roster. Is this the most CHL players ever on a U.S. under20 team, That is interesting since last year didn`t they leave off the team a couple of Americans who were excelling in the
CHL

Really proud of all the guys. Awesome tournament, way to make up for last year and come together. Great tournament by Sweden, feel really bad for those guys, to keep losing to the USA group, they play good games, glad the streak didn't end today as a USA fan. As a Wings fan I always pull for them second they deserve a lot of credit for all the injuries they overcame and how great they have been for a couple years running. Will be very tough to beat on home ice next year, 10 guys back off this team.
