I like the idea of Ekman on the team. However I don't think Hardy will select him. If he were to be picked for the team, there are a number of options where to put him, why not use him with the Sedins, he is a proven goal scorer and has a quick release..

Haha, surely I've must have been drunk. I meant Holmström of course...

But Tampa GM is right, Holmqvist used to play for Djurgården so we never know.

I've also considered the Näslund-Forsberg-Holmström line. Could be interesting.

WC roster

What about this ?!

First line: Magnus Nilsson-Jonas Rönnqvist-Karl Fabricius
Johan Fransson-Roger Åkerström

Second line: Per Ledin-Thomas "Bulan" Berglund-Linus Fagemo
Jan Sandström-Torbjörn Lindberg

Third line: Emil Lundberg-Johan Tellström-Hans Huczkowski


The defensemen are strong enough to play on two pair of defensemen and with the experiense in Åkerström we can play him in PP, BP and 5-5 because he is always on right place in right time so he never has to do the "idiot-rushes".

The offensive players, well do we have to talk about them.. ?? With "Bulan", Tellström and Rönnqvist as centers we never has to worry !

The rule with three U22's have been taken away, why there is more room for experienced players on the roster.
I'll stick with my team:

G: Tommy Salo, Mikael Tellqvist, Johan Hedberg
D: Nicklas Lidström, Mattias Norström, Kim Johnsson, Marcus Ragnarsson, Kenny Jönsson, Mattias Öhlund, Dick Tärnström
C: Peter Forsberg, Mats Sundin, Michael Nylander, Henrik Sedin, Niklas Sundström
W: Markus Näslund, Daniel Alfredsson, Fredrik Modin, Henrik Zetterberg, Daniel Sedin, Nils Ekman, Per-Johan Axelsson, Andreas Johansson

This rule change makes room for another three players (I'll take 1 defenseman and 2 forwards).

D Daniel Tjärnqvist - Solid and steady two-way d-man that have played well lately with Atlanta, getting around 25 minutes a game. Have always played well with the national team, and have earlier been paired with Kim Johnsson and Dick Tärnström.

W Kristian Huselius - Have struggled somewhat scoring goals this season but got great potential, maybe he can be a threat with the right linemates if injuries occur among our top scorers. Have shown chemistry with Nylander earlier.

W Thomas Holmström - Could be in the lineup just for his importance on the PP, he could be one of the weapons in tight games, BUT his play 5-5 isn't as good to grab a regular lineup position. If our PP doesn't work in the first games, he would be a perfect addition in the lineup.

If injuries occur:
On defense Niclas Hävelid and Christian Bäckman could step in and do a good job. Among forwards we don't got that many offenisve threats, if Renberg is gonna play he must play with Sundin to get effective, but I think he time is done in the national team. Players who could step in and do their job include Marcus Nilson and Samuel Påhlsson, players I wouldn't disagree having on the roster. Fredrik Sjöström probably won't get the chance. Mattias Weinhandl could be an extra forward, just to play with the twins, and he has played well this year in Islanders. Both offenisvely and defensively, and never is sad about his play, he gives it all.

Looks really good. You have room for three more players as the roster can carry 26 (3 goalies + 23 skaters) players. Who would take the final spots?

I thought about that but couldn't really make up my mind. I could either go with safe picks like Sundström, Jönsson and Tjärnqvist for example. Or I could pick some promising players so they get the chance to gain some experience. If so I would probably pick Steen, Fransson and why not Wallin.

I love Hedberg! Do you think there is a chance that he will play in the world cup?? I really hope so! And I hope they will go to the final! Go Sweden!

But why pick young players who so they can get experience? I want to see Sweden win now, with the best available team - old or young. We have Euro Hockey Tour to develop young players, they shouldn´t play in big championships if they aren´t good enough.

I could see Alexander Steen at the World Championships though.

Totally agreed. Besides, it's good to have quality alternatives if for example some lines or the PP doesn't work. Thats why it's important to have som different players as the three men out. Niklas Sundström is a player you could put anywhere, perfect extra man. But maybe he and Hardy doesn't speak the same language since last World Champs.

I agree somewhat, that's why I couldn't decide which way to go. The safe way is probably the smartest move if you want to win. And like you said, a player like Sundström can play almost anywhere. What if we use him as a backup goalie?

Seems like Påhlsson is getting a ticket to World Cup after his play so far in the World Champs. If Hardy is going to play Sundin, Forsberg, Nylander, Jönsson and Påhlsson I doubt there is place for the Sedins. Sad. But Jönsson have been really good so far in the Champs, so I can't blame Hardy. BUT, Jönsson said earlier, this may be his last apperance in the National Team, he is to decide after the Champs as of what I understand.

I actually haven't been that impressed by Påhlsson, and I'm no fan of his line with Salomonsson and Hedström. A little overrated IMO. Påhlsson is a good player but I wouldn't put him on my WC team. Now Jönsson I like, but not sure if he will take a place on the WC roster either.

One player who could have played himself to the World Cup during the World champs is Bäckman though. He has impressed me from time to time. Instead of Kenny Jönsson maybe?

But Kenny Jönsson was quite good in the 2002 Olympics, except in the Belarus game, but no one were good there.

There are four locks on the Swedish defense IMO: Lidström, Norström, Johnsson and Öhlund.

The other four spots is a battle between Ragnarsson, Jönsson, Tärnström, Tjärnqvist, Hävelid and Bäckman.

IMO we need a Ragnarsson type of player, and the pairing of Hävelid and Tärnström works well so far in the Champs, Daniel Tjärnqvist is solid. At the moment I rate Bäckman last of these, but he could be with the roster to gain more experience. However, I think we should go with the best roster avaliable, and Bäckman is not a part of that team.

You're right, he's a little unproven yet and we do have better d-men. But we also have this dancing banana ->

As defenders I woul like to see these:

Lidström-Norström
Hävelid-Tärnström
Ragnarsson-Johnsson

I think those are well balanced amd would work together.

Öhlund have had his best season ever in the NHL this year, and is was considered by many as one of the most underrated defenders in the league. And remember, he is still quite young, only 28 years old this year.

Well even if Öhlund is a great player I feel that these pairs are better, they have the right balance and can play together, I rather have a good and solid team than just look at the inviduals but both he and Kenny Jönsson are great back-ups.

true, balance is important. Personally I see Ragnarsson quite similar to Öhlund, but IMO Öhlund is superior both in the defensive zone as well as in the offensive. I would choose him ahead of Ragnarsson and he would not have any problems backing up Kim Johnsson's offensive rushes. Well, that is my personal opinion of course
