Hertl is a nice player, i envy San Jose for getting him.
Sweden is the same old, bad in the first game but only getting better. I can see that we actually will be playing for a final this year as they always is better when they don't have any winning pressure on them.
Joel Lundqvist must be the better looking part of the Lundqvists, i think king Henrik evny Joel.
Well, this is a whole lot more comforting than last nights debacle. Good intensity.
But someone seriously needs to remove the master of platitudes Leif Boork. How can he be rehired year after year? He's totally pointless.
I'd say we deserved that game. Interesting to see us clogging up the neutral zone, I think that's how this team needs to play going forward.. Less flash, more trap. We can't go skill against skill versus Canada or Russia.
Landeskog was alright today, he's still being misused though in my opinion. As is Gustafsson.
I do agree with this. I usually ***** about Canadians always getting away with stuff in internationel tournaments, but in this game we could've had 3-4 penalties where the refs decided to not make the call.
Agreed. I think the team will benefit alot from this win, and should they keep this up, things are looking good.
E: @Joe89 How would you like Landeskog to be used?
Landeskog is being used in a shutdown role on this team, he was used sparsely until Sweden scored 2-0. He's not the biggest creator on this team but he's top5. He should at least be used in front of the net on the PP, and arguably play on a skill line too. He's strong on the puck and creates space for others.
Happens in every game to every team, but c'mon, something as obvious as this? At such a key point in the game?
Sweden deserved to win that one, no doubt.
Looked as the penalty on Tallinder was more like him turning around and shielding himself though and not a X-check. Hertl hook was a penalty, but arguably that other one wasn't, so maybe it evened out.
