Will not go. Apparently he declined because he was told Bryzgalov is going to be the starter.

Hopefully Varly takes over for Bryzgalov.

Markus Lauridsen made the Danish team.

Got 10 players going, pretty good for a rebuilding team that just won the lottery.

He will probably look about as good as you can on that team (I expect Denmark to be pretty bad)... Should get top 4 minutes.

There is actually talk about Landeskog being Swedens first line center. Serious lack of center depth in the Swedish team. Mikael Backlund was our best one and now he is injured ! Haha

I'd actually like to see what he could do at center on that stage. I think he has the ability and smarts to be effective at center.

Didn't Landy play center during the lockout? and didn't he suck at it?

I think he did, and he also kinda sucked in general during the lockout from what I understand.

He played center cause they tried to bolster that first line big time. The three best players on it at the same time. But he wasn't the one that sucked. His linemates who were supposed to be our best players turned out to be crap. He was OK. But.. he can't run around and hit people the same way. Which he SHOULD do. So I'm not sold on the idea.

I think him playing center has a lot to do with his sudden drive to pass when he should be shooting and I don't like it one bit.

Why in hell would Russia just hand the starting job to Bryz over Bobrovsky right off the bat?

According to Slava Malamud, Bryzgalov said he's only going to play if he's the starter and Russia didn't want to cut ties with him just yet so they said okay. I would've just told Bryzgalov to take a hike.

he kinda sucked during NHL-season as well. He thinks he's this big shot playmaker after winning Calder. He should just focus playing tough and good game. Not this ******** fancy playmaker ****.

Maybe he's saying defense sucks big time? Or Sacco sucks. Both are true.

They're making him the starting goalie in hope he flops, so that they could easily justify going with Varlamov/Bob duo in Sochi.

Pretty good news to here that Landeskog can get that honour on such a big stage, with Sweden being co-hosts of the event, no less.

Staffan Kronwall (66 NHL games total) will be captain for Team Sweden. No Landeskog in spite of it was expected.
