And here is why David Naylor of TSN called the World Hockey Championships "the most random sporting event in the world".

Sweden: 10/11, 14/16 of their top NHL scorers in the playoffs
USA: 7/8, 11/13 in the playoffs
Finland: 5/6 in the playoffs
Czechs: 1/5, 3/10 in the playoffs
Canada: 1/4, 2/6 in the playoffs

Just because a Player is good on NHL small sized Ice, doesn't mean he is Elite on Olympic Sized Big Ice - Different Game.

Maybe TSN is mad because Canada has NOT won a "Big Ice" Tournament in 6-7 years almost (2007 WC - 7th in 2006 Olympics)? Maybe NHL players aren't as elite as we thought

Korpikoski is coming to play for Finland: http://coyotes.nhl.com/club/news.htm...id=DL|PHX|home

He will be the only NHL reinforcement for Finland unless someone whose team gets eliminated on the 1st round is willing to come in the middle of the tournament.

It is true that canadas semi-elite professional players on big ice are not overwhelmingly good against european based elite players, but this is no news. Just look at the soviets vs. the half good nhl team competing for Canada. But make no mistake, NHL stars are nhl stars and we need only look to the intercontinental games before the recent nhl premieres to see that nhl teams are very much better than european ones even on big ice. They CAN lose, but not in a say best of seven environment.

Well, Canada has a golden opportunity then with Finland and Sweden sending under-strength teams.

Bobrovsky was better than Bryzgalov in the NHL and the KHL. If that's true then Russia needs better coaching

Bobrovsky isn't going because he said he's too tired out from the NHL regular season. Bryz and Varly will battle it out for the number 1 spot.

Im OK with anything but dropping to B-pool world championships. With perfect succes they could play in the medal rounds I think.
Our team consists of a group of NLA players (Note that many of the best offensive players turned down the invitation / are injured) +Josi + Niederreiter
The general consensus in the media (and on the Western Europe Board) is, that this is a "B-Team" at best and that it's definitely one oft the weaker team that Switzerland has sent to the WCs in recent years.
I pretty much expect that you guys beat us.

Long story short:

Are you kidding? Look at the list of Canadian players who have already agreed to play. Giroux, Stamkos, Staal, etc. Nash, Staal, and others have been virtual locks for the team every year. It's nothing as bad as Finland is dealing with this year.

On a side note, what does "retires from nt" mean? I can't figure out what nt stands for.

Sweden have bigger problems with getting nhlers to play for the national team then little brother finland.

Thanks. That's what I assumed, but why would certain players "retire" from the national team? Do they have problems with management or something? I mean Jokinen is 34. That's not very old.

Probably because they don't have any "hunger" left to dress up for the national team any more. They have had their time and share of games/tournaments and now it's time for some new blood.
And family matter more when you get older.

(If I should take a guess)

Apparently he sustained an injury late in the season and wants to let it heal

Between 1998 and 2010, Olli Jokinen played in eight WHCs, three olympic tournaments and one World Cup. He was practically always there when able.

He announced his retirement from national team duties after Vancouver, and hasn't looked back. He simply felt that he has already seen everything playing in international tournaments can give to him.

Some are holding some hope though that he might return for Sochi, mostly because when compared to our current coach Jalonen, he is far more buddy-buddy with Erkka Westerlund, our head coach for next season.

Some say Jokinen retired from NT only because he hates our coach since olympics. If that's big factor in the case, there is a solid chance he is available for national team next year when the coach changes.
