You know it's a very good opponent when even the super patriot Niklas Wikegård believes in Switzerland. Scary...

Let's go SWEDEN!

I was referring to offense. Sweden won't score many goals against Switzerland tonight if they can shut down Sedins like i think they can.
You make it sound like shutting down two Art Ross winners is a piece of cake.

I'm rooting for both teams. Just hope the Sedins' get a lot of players.

Let's just see how the Swiss combat the Sedin twins. I'm sure they have a gameplay against them, whether it works is a whole different story.

Let's go Sweden!

Cheering for Switzerland (always do after Canada, not because I hate Sweden) - but their penalties issues worry me against Sweden.

Hopefully the refs put their whistles away like they did in the Bronze Medal game.

And a very good NHL winger who understands their game, who also happens to be a good match in terms of playing styles. Eriksson likes to go to the net and to collect goals, but can also help the Sedins in their cycle if he needs to.

Swiss are the better team, but Sweden has the better Sedins in this game. And those two always deliver.

I am named after a Swedish player.

Usually root against Sweden internationally though. How counterproductive...

No disrespect to Sweden but I would love to see the Swiss win gold.
In fact and I know some here won't believe me if it was Canada vs the Swiss, I'd cheer for the Swiss.
People want to grow the game and they automatically think growing it in the states......well a Swiss win will do wonders for getting more kids interested in hockey in Switzerland.
Way too much emphasis in growing the game in the US. I want it grown in more countries in Europe.

Sedins/Eriksson line is a key to this match.

If you live in Canada, TSN is showing the Rangers/Bruins and the Gold medal game on tape delay tonight. However, just switch to TSN 2 and the gold medal game will be live(Starting soon)

*Maybe a mod can pass this on to the first post? I'm sure a lot of people haven't realized it's on TSN 2.

Hopefully Swiss comes as strong into this game as they've come in earlier games. Then they have shot to win this.
