Yeah.. he might not get all the credit here, but he's so well-rounded. To me, definitely one of the most NHL ready guys I watched. He was so solid.

Forsberg making the allstar team is pathetic. He had one good period in the entire tournament.

Never seen such civil atmosphere on hfboards after a WJC final ever.. well, between fans of the final teams at least.. The day is still young though!

Swedes have tasted what we could play like when everything is going our way. With last year in mind, you can't really say anything else than this Team USA was playing like us last year.

They were the most dominant team come the playoffs, fully deserved this.

With that out of the way, we've really outdone ourselves this year. Sure, we could've made less mistakes in the final... but looking at the whole tournament; well done boys.

That Qunebo character fortunately does not represent all the Finnish posters. I am actually ashamed by him continuously. Best response is not to sink to his kind of level, i.e. the same m.o. as with any other troll.


Anyway, congratz to team USA, clearly the best team this year, no doubt about it really.

That's scary for the rest of us. Some damn good talent. I'd love to see them get some in-zone structure. I'd have them cycle and look to set up one-timers. To me, they were trying to dangle and get the pretty goal, and I thought they had some chances at garbage goals.

Who says Americans don't like this tournament? This is a bar in Buffalo that opened at 8am for the game.

Still can't believe the Sweden player threw his stick at the end, that was hilarious, why would you even do that?

The only time I've ever seen it happen was in a U12 game

Buffalo is more or less Toronto... Northeast USA, Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin cares... The rest... do not.

I'd prefer Czech third but it works out

Sad to see Forsberg getting hate though.
