Sweden vs. Russia
--------------------------------

My prediction: 4-2 Sweden

Should be a tight game by all means. I wasn't at all impressed by the Russian team in an exhibition game last week however, but on the other hand Kovalchuk wasn't playing

Sorry guys... Sweden should have little chance over a packed team like this russian team.
Packed team? You mean they have a deep roster?

Yepp, you're right, but Sweden is a hard working team and could get the Russian players out of balance. Jonathan Hedström irritated half of the Russian team in a tournament earlier this season, and he can do it again. I belive in Sweden.

As far as I know that's exactly how the lines will be. Interesting to see what Kahnberg can do with Nyllet and PJ. My guess for the game tonight is 2-2.

4 - 3 Sweden.

I don't see how Russians would score less than three, but I see them giving up even more.

edit: spelling

Yes, it's a very interseting line. It has everything. Axelsson has speed, defensive awarness, checking. Nylander is a excellent playmaker, can hold on to the puck, do the unexpected. Kahnberg is the scorer, can do nice moves. Will be a very intersting line. If they play together that is.

BTW, we can go with five defensemen IMO. Tärnström, Hävelid, Bäckman and Tjärnqvist are used to ice-times around 23-28 minutes. Sundin also playes a lot with Frölunda. Won't be any problems. Besides, we need both of Axelsson and Nylander tonight, and if we wait with one of them, both Sundin and Forsberg can't join the roster later. Although I don't think especially Sundin won't come, due to the injurie he had, it would be stupid not to have two roster spots for Sudden and Foppa IF they both are eliminated and decides to come.

I think Johansson - Jönsson - Alfredsson is a bad line. Too many puck-kåta lirare, if you know what I mean. Johansson is a better center than Davidsson, I don't understand why he's not centering a line of his own. You might recall that Johansson was very good in the comeback against finland in the WC in Gothenburg a few years back. He is a good leader and a good center, we should make use of it.

Kahnberg is going to get a chance to play with Nylander, a fantastic playmaker, and Axelsson, a fantastic defensive player. It's going to be great to see him paired with top level NHL talent to see how far away from playing for Carolina he is. I'm predicting he has a big game.

4-3 Sweden

4-3 Sweden
they are playing former IHL star Niklas Andersson with Nylander and "Pebben", so Kahnberg will be on the fourth line with Tjärnqvist and Sjöström.

Sweden has dominated, great intensity so far. PJ Axelsson with an excellent hit on Kovalchuk.

powerplay Sweden.
Russians have started to play well now also, Yashin and Kovalchuk were dangerous but Lundqvist made two good saves.
