Consistency seems to be Rask's biggest problem, he is not the fastest guy either. I thought he was really good in a couple of WJC-games last year but completely invisible in the other games. He is however very smart and he has some really nice offensive tools while being defensively responsible.

Karlsson #1 Center?

Hope so, just took him in my world junior pool.

Boyce flew over when Åberg got injured, didn't he take Åberg's place? Or was he registered from the beginning?

Åberg was injured before he was registered.

Two cuts to be made. 1D and 1FW.

If there are no injuries, that is. Don't know what they'd do if there's more than 1 injury before 26th on any position, but André Burakovsky is the next guy on FW and gotta believe it's Byström on D?

Is Burakovsky above Åberg on such a list? If so Åberg must've pissed somebody off.. He's not been THAT bad.

It's a joke that Ottawa didn't let Zibanejad go to the tournament. Just imagine the outrage Hockey Canada would have if Edmonton refused to let RNH go. FFS The competition in the WJC is probably pretty close to the AHL.

It's close but definitely not better, plus you're playing on big ice and not against men. I don't blame Ottawa one bit, especially with Zibanejad taking awhile to adjust to North American hockey.

It's pretty close, but right now I think Lundström is the favorite (and like others mentioned, Lassinantti shouldn't be ignored).

Take it with a pinch of salt, but last word on the street is that they were willing to let him go but he's been out for two weeks now with illness/headaches so that made it a no-deal. One has to wonder how much he'd help the Swedish team at this point anyway. He's low on confidence, he hasn't been playing for a while, and the tournament starts in 12 days. Sweden will be OK at forward.

Who knows, if NHL reaches a deal this discussion would've been for nothing.

Is Karlsson the de-facto #1 center?

He is centering one of the two top-lines along with Lindholm. I would call him the 1a center and Lindholm the 1b, Karlsson will probably be used more in certain situations.

I see Mikael Vikstrand and Calle Andersson as the 2 most offensive Defenseman for Sweden.

As for forward point leaders i see it breaking down this way.

1. Filip Forsberg
2. William Karlsson
3. Elias Lindholm
4. Sebastian Collberg
5. Viktor Arvidsson

As for the goaltending position..

1. Niklas Lundström
2. Oscar Dansk

This is the worst defence we've had in the JWC in a long time.

If we manage to reach the finals, it's totally unbelievable.

Top-6

1: Canada
2: Russia
3: USA
4: Finland (they seem to have a better team than us this time around?)
5: Sweden
6: Czech Rep


Perhaps?

I think Sweden has small edge on forwards, we have little better D (homer) and Sweden with a small edge on net.

So we are pretty much wash.

Well Swedens goalie Lassinaanti seems to have Finnish origin so it doesn't count.

Can't expect Lindholm to do it all, doubt he will finish top 2 in defensive points.

Vikstrand will be the #1 PP guy, so much is clear. Other than him I expect Djuse and Lindholm to see PP time. Swe's 1st unit likely has four forwards.

I still think Lindholm has a solid chance on leading the D's in points because of the minutes he'll play. The expected would be Vikstrand, and my darkhorse would be Bengtsson.

I remember Rasmus Bengtsson as a pretty good PP-quarteback. Allthough he doesn't really seem to put up any points in USHL.
