Lidstrom was. Last year WC final. But it was only one time he was bad that I remember for a long time.

I don't agree at all that Sweden haven't played well defensivly the last couple of years, atleast not in the WCH. IMO it couldn't be more wrong. Look at Tre Kronors GAA the last 4-5 years. We are clearly the best of the bunch. If anything we have been better on the ice then on "papper". Tjärnqvist, Hävelid, Norström and Tärnström among many others have always been able to get the job done.

However this year it could be another story. Sundin is awfully slow, Jönsson haven't impressed combined with that the two of them are paired with Rhodin and Johansson who have their positive sides but needs "backup".

BÅG should experiment with playing all four of our defensive D's and leaving one of Rhodin or Johansson out of the line up. This would mean less icetime for Norström and either Bäckman or Kronwall would be double shifted with Lindström. But atleast we wouldn't have Rhodin or Johansson on the ice, in facto, every other shift. There are always ways to give more ice to Norström, like doubleshifting him on the PK.

Another alternative is gooing with 3 pairings and making Jönsson a "offensive" D. Norström-Bäckman, Sundin-Jönsson, Lindström-Kronwall.

Its not that I am a big fan of Lindström but the D crop we had against Russia won't take us anywhere. Not a chance. I am not 100% cofident that BÅG will be able to solve this... Could be his first big misstake.

Lidström's game is 75% positioning. For him to go from the NHL to a international icesurface is like Brett Hull shifting from shooting from the right to the left overnight... (almost )

Yeah, but that doesn't change the fact that he played bad.

No. Like about 90% of the other players from the World Cup team he has declined to play, due to injuries I believe.

Any ideas on how the lines will look like? Will Paahlsson Alfredsson and Axelsson play together? That line was nice for Froelunda.

Yeah, they will.
Hedström-Zetterberg-Weinhandl will play together, too, I think.
Nordström-Jönsson-Höglund.

My guess:

Axelsson - Påhlsson - Alfredsson
Hedström - Zetterberg - Weinhandl
Sedin - Sedin - Samuelsson
Nordström - Jönsson - Kahnberg/Höglund <- hopefully Kahnberg IMO

Thats exactly what I think too. Except that I don't think Höglund has a chance to make the team.

Zetterberg was very good yesterday. He surely is a big part of your team.

BTW, Chara had 4 penalties yesterday. 3 were cause of Swedes taunting him, and 1 for diving (but IMO, he didnt dive after a Hoglund holding penalty).
