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!
What pisses me off is that Forsberg is for whatever inscrutable reason was in almost the whole last 2 minutes of the game. He has been awful the entire tournament and he was our captain. Unbelievable. The total opposite of a team player.
How can a Fin come in here and try and taunt the Swedish fans? You played in the relegation rounds! You're a terrible hockey-country during the last couple of years with terrible regrowth in junior-hockey
Hahaha, you must know nothing about Sweden and Finland sir.
Zibanejad (best Swedish player last WJC), Brodin (best defenceman by far), Klefbom (AST last WJC), Lindholm (would've had a pretty good shot at playing for Anaheim in the NHL if there hasn't been a lock out).
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.
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
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.
