If the swiss can stay out of the penalty box they can win this. Bronze should go to Finland.

I'm confused to as if Sweden is an underdog or not in this final Either way I'm proud to be one of the 7 voters that said Sweden would take this thing before the quarters in the poll. Hur svenska stålet biter, kom låt oss pröva på!

Swaizland has big chance of becoming Champions tomorrow..


In Finland - USA game, USA is likely to care even less than Finland and lose the game, but Gibbson will start and he might take it alone.

If the Swiss can defuse the Swedish 1st unit and show the Sedins some manors, they can actually take it all.

The Bronze game is a tossup. It may be a cliché, but this one will be won by the one who deals with the disappointment better.


It's not the same as winning gold of course, but there actually still is a small prize to be won by Finland. If they can take the bronze, and Sweden doesn't win, they will grab the #1 spot in IIHF World Ranking, first time in history.

Sold out on the official ticnet.se site, but you will have scalpers outside selling tickets aswell as on various sites. So the question is what is "reasonable" to watch your country play a final.

EDIT: Had a quick look on a scalper site and they were selling final tickets for 500 euro a pop, not sure if that is indicative or not.

Sweden will take it on homeice and this game with the sedins in the lineup!
Usually its hard to remain a good shape a whole Wc run, good teams who are slowstarters do often bring home the cup, best the last week!

I'm pulling hard for the Swiss. Would be awesome for them. Both Berra and Gerber have been stellar.

"Experts" on Swedish TV hold the Swiss as big favorites to win. They were scary good today.
