Sens on Sochi team Sweden?

Do you guys think that all of our swedes will make it ?

Karlsson
Alfie
Silfverberg
Zibanejad
Lehner

Karlsson is a shoe-in, assuming his achilles is ok, if Alfie is active, I have to imagine he will be there too. The rest could be more uncertain.

Only Karlsson and Alfie from that list. Silf, Zibby and Lehner are still not established in the NHL.

Wouldn't surprise me if Silfverberg made it -- he looked pretty good on their WC team.

For the goalies, I can see Lehner making it based off his good year this year and a half decent season next year.

Lundqvist
Lehner

Alfie will definitely make it. I can see him with the Sedins based on interest on what they could do together. Saw a little glimpse of it during the allstar game.

As for Karlsson, he'll headline their defense. I'd love nothing more then to see a Kronwall - Karlsson pairing!

Silfverberg - Zibby will depend on their next 2 seasons (Including this one)

I could see Silfverberg making it considering he's a superstar in Sweden, but if you look at NHL Swedish players they'll have a pretty sick team.

Alfie and Karlsson are 100% there if available. Silf maybe a 25% chance at current curve, Ziba and Lehner way lower.

I disagree. This is international hockey not the NHL. Very different. Silfverberg has a strong chance to be on the roster.

Thinking again yeah I think he could make it but I wouldn't say a strong chance.

I think Karlsson's the only lock to make Team Sweden, Alfie may make it to if he doesn't retire.

Bäckström the goalie is Finnish, and Fasth will be there for sure.

If Canada goes down, Sweden is my #2. Wouldn't be surprised if it's the same for a lot of other Sens fans.

Same.

If Sweden is playing Canada, there is no way I can bring myself to cheer for Sweden. Surprisingly, a lot of people on this forum can.

Finland is always a good team to cheer for too. They are like a Canadian province with a different language and culture.

EK is a lock, Alfie maybe (depends on how he looks) as C.

Sedin Sedin X
Eriksson Zetterberg Franzen
Landeskog Bäckström Alfredsson
Hagelin Steen Stålberg

X would preferably be a rh shoot cause we only have Alfredsson right now and he might not even play.

Likley candiates are
RH
Zibanejad (small chance)
Silfverberg (but he have been awful in international play to slow)
Hörnqvist (to streaky always goes cold in international play)
LH
MSP (Usually scores around 1pt per game on NT but his play have gone downhill)

But most likely is that Landeskog moves up with the Sedins and they bring in someone like Johansson to play with Bäckström.

On d we are set with
Karlsson
OEL
Hedman
Edler
Enstöm
Kronwall
Hjalmarsson
Ericsson
Brodin

In net
Lundqvist
Fasth

Lehner might make it as a thrid goalie if they decide to go with a young one for the experience.

Hes average at faceoffs none of our centers is good at faceoffs and that is a big problem. I would have prefered a rh center that would give more options in diff game situation. Zibanejad would have been an option but i think hes a year or two away.

MPS cant score even if his life depended on it. He had some lucky bounces and anyone who used their eyes should have seen that goals like that wouldn't happen twice. He also choked in the WHJC semi and WHC semi, and was absolutely useless.

If you want offensive talent, i would give Omark a second look to see how he recovered from his injury. He was also the one setting up MPS for lots of tap in goals the season people still belived MPS could score.

Marcus Johansson played very well for Washington last year. He should be a candidate with his speed and skill.

Hörnqvist will be there if he produces with his team, dont agree with it but coaches likes him.

Zib wont be there for sure, whole of Europe in front of him on that list and he belongs in the AHL.

Silfver isnt good enough to be in the Olympics, i rather play OEM or EK as a forward.

Berglund and Landy are probable candidates.

The main issue is that Sweden totally lacks depth on the forward side... If we get into the medals its an achievement.
