And i gotta ask; do you really believe that Finland is better than Sweden at hockey?
no last year russia won the gold.(2013 now so gotta speak in past :/) we both missed the medals. 2 years back we faced eachother in the finals
It's hard question you asking since we gotta think on how far back do we look? last few years we've been more succesful in adults hockey. bronze in vancouver 2010, gold in 2011 then sweden in other hand silver 2011 and gold in kids games 2012
you have bigger names in the NHL but last years tournament proved it again that big names doesn't mean good team...so i would have to say neither of us is better or worse. you have better individuals but i would say we got better team play.
only in the kids games. last year mens IIHF your "star team" with full of NHL superstars failed big time. Finland with much worse team went further in the tournament. That if something tells the true level. Our kids failed this tournament big time as well. too good prem. games so they went jackets open to play real games and failed. i laughed my ass off tho, it was fun to watch Anyways grats USA for the gold. truly deserved. Too bad the final game wasn't as entertaining as bronze but that's how it usually goes. Too much pressure in the final
Sweden has better hockey players than Finland on all levels.
