Seems like 0-2 was a bit demoralizing. That's why we can't have goaltending like that when the real show starts.

As I said, the Brynäs-line looks really weak when they have to play in their own zone, this wont hold in the WC. They all look confused and lost and doesn't know what to do when they don't have the puck.

USA are dominating. Their cycle game is causing us to run around like headless chicken Swedes and lose players in the slot.

I know it's a meaningless exhibition but this is the best I've ever seen Okposo look in this tournament. Score doesn't really matter just hoping they get some chemistry and adjust as best as possible to the big ice.

I really like this team USA, great hardworking team with a lot of speed and discipline. This swedish team is far from getting to the finals though, as it is right now. Some great additions to be made, obviously, but still, the effort isn't here yet.

For those of you watching the game, How has Okposo looked. This season he seemed to shy away from the physical game that helped him out in the begining of his career pre-injury. He was just starting to come back to it as this past season ended.

I don't know if it's the language barrier, but these announcers are boring :|

if this team can get Oshie and Shattenkirk, I can certainly see a medal type performance here....if these guys keep working hard and skating as they have been

They are just as boring when you understand them. I can't stand either of them.

How can you say something like that about Renberg?

Trust me, they're boring even if you know swedish, it's like two old confused men sitting talking to eachother in a sofa while watching the game.

They ARE boring. The PxP guy, Lindeborg, couldn't make a game exciting if his life depended on it. And Renberg is srs biz as color guy.
