Kim Johnson says no to Olympics

Just confirmed today that Kim Johnson will stay with his family because his wife is expecting a child during the Olympics

Today Niklas Hävelid was named as his replacement



horrible news for the Swedish PP, i was expecting Lidström and Johnson..

dammit!


Johnsson hasn't been *so* great with the PP this season. This year, I'd say the Swedish PP is better off with Lidstrom and Ohlund.



His wife better have the kid or else I'm pulling it out myself!

Exactly, Kim Johnsson is replaceable. Sweden is loaded without him.

Johnsson has been pretty bad this season. Not a big deal.

Maybe it's not a big deal but he's still better than Hävelid.

That's not the truth. He struggled a bit early as he was battling through a groin issue, but the last 6 weeks he's looked like the Kim Johnsson of old.

how come we're the only country that is replacing players for injuries or no thanks? We're cursed.

well yeah he is, on the other hand Hävelid plays 25 min a game so the coach must like him.

I think Sweden will regret suspending Tallinder and Lilja. What if Kronwall cannot play either?
I understand all the charges against them have been dropped, and they have been cleared to play for Sweden again after the 2006-2007 season. Why are they still banned from Turin??

What do you mean? Finland has already replaced T.Ruutu and Kipper with J.Jokinen and Nitty. And it is possible that Sami Kapanen or/and Pitkänen are going to miss the Olympics, too.

Tallinder could have been useful, but not Lilja.


The real shame is that Doug Murray isnt even on the list, so he cant be selected.

I don't want to see him play. I don't consider him good enough. And I think he is a disgrace that shouldn't be allowed near the national team. But that, alas, is a different discussion.

but seriously. It looks like Kronwall can't play and then we have to choose magnus johansson or rhodin from SEL. Don't you want to see tallinder then? Where is our depth chart now? That's what I meant.

There are a load of good d-men in the SEL, losing a NHLer isn't the end of the world...

No, I don't. Going purely on merit, I'd rather see Hävelid and Tjärnqvist. And I just might prefer Doug Murray over Tallinder - I like what I'm hearing about him - though I can't say for sure, since I haven't seen him play.

But even if Tallinder was the best player available, I wouldn't want to see him on the team. There are more important things in life than putting out the best available hockey team. Such as representing your country with dignity and being a role-model for children.

no he hasn't. I don't agree with my countrymen here. If kronwall can't play tallinder would have been useful.

That hurts

Johnsson has been finding his stride of late, especially on the PP where Sweden would have paired him with Lidstrom. I think Ohlund would be their number two minutes guy, anyway, but this is not a small loss. Good for me, I dont need any more Flyers going over there and getting injured. I am already worried Foppa comes back with an injury, let alone all these other guys we are sending (Knuble, Nitty, etc).
