You make it sound like shutting down two Art Ross winners is a piece of cake.
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.
You wont break them.. If they lose, it's Swiss just having their stomach full of succes already.. They aren't used to play for medals, and the way they talked after the game.. like they would've achieved something special.. I fear that it could display as some kind of feel-good surf start for the gold medal game.
Swiss are the better team, but Sweden has the better Sedins in this game. And those two always deliver.
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.
