Well, I'll be gouging my eyes out with a rusty spoon unless the world ends within 20 minutes.

Bystrom's not exactly helping his draft position this game. I think it's case closed in the Lindholm - Bystrom comparison.

Was there really ever any doubts though? I've always thought Bryström was a liability. At least in the handful of games i've watched him. He mixes fantastic preformances with emberrasing showings.

USA is just jumping on mistakes. Glad to see they did not come out flat in the 3rd period. Gold just 17 min away!

Imo, no not really. But in various draft rankings they've been ranked about equally all season, Bystrom even ahead at times. Offensively they're probably pretty close, defensively it's not close.

Couldn't agree more. Defense overall has been very disappointing this game. Players like Djoos, Andersson.. having a mare too.

What are the Swedish posters opinion on the US D? ...Even though it is a game of mistakes everyone has to admit it's very tough to penetrate in the prime scoring areas with Jones on one pairing and Trouba on the other.

You think Jones will have a shot at any upcoming World Championships before his draft? I'm sure he'd be capable of performing next season at the Worlds.

I agree. Sweden just missed an open net but other than that USA has been rock solid.

Very impressed with Jones. He comes as advertised, seems to do everything at a high level. Trouba is impressive as well. As a unit their defense has been pretty much rock solid.

and there Sweden screws up a prime scoring chance.. :/

They are fantastic. And their confidence in their own zone only goes up by having a solid goalie. Swedens chance this game was pumping a lot of shots on net and then going for the rebounds. There has been way to little of that. The US defence is way to tight to let players just walk in to the slot.

No. Well, he shouldn't. Granted, USA Hockey has a notoriously difficult time getting players of note to care about the World Championships but in next year's tournament that shouldn't be as big of an issue. Last big chance for a lot of guys to internationally audition for the 2014 Olympic Team and I think participation will be as strong as it was prior to the 2010 Olympics.

That said, if Jones keeps progressing as he has, I'm sure he'd be capable of playing in the tournament but I'm not sure that's ideal.
