Sure when you see the forecheck they were doing at the beginning of the game they didn't take any risk and playd defense above everything. Are some of you actually watching the games?

They are just stupid and wrong. Swiss is NOT that kind of trap team. It's SWEDEN who traps the centerice, swiss have many times to take slow start behind the net. Probably they just copy something that they heard about Swiss hockey 5 to 10 years ago.

And I would think that Swedes are like Finns in that matter; They see someone famous, they don't bother them. Maybe few whispers to a friend "You know who that is?".

Only exceptions are teenage girls and their idols.

Why is Hockey so unpopular in Stockholm?! Is it just because everyone is so tuned into Football and ignorant about Hockey?

We can then steal a few American goalie coaches.

Damn even Jamaican coaches would probably do better than what we have.

The Globe isn't sold out at the WC Final? I see a bunch of empty chairs there. Perhaps some business ölfettos sitting at the bar...

loui eriksson does not play the cycle game with the sedins, which is another reason why I think it's working, teams are having a hard time predicting what they are doing.
