Which players from the final teams do you think will join for LG Hockey Games? I would guess Liv, Davidsson, Nilson, Ragnarsson and maybe Ölvestad

And Engqvist.


Ölvestad - Engqvist - F Pettersson

Very good checking-line.

Now that Ottawa is knocked out, Alfredsson and Karlsson are available. I would be surprised if Alfie accepted, but Karlsson would probably go if invited. Should he be invited?

Karlsson is fine to come and play for a spot at LGHG imo, but he is not an NHLer to go right into the WC squad. Alfie is injured so forget about him.

Engqvist from the finals, I think he has a really good chance to take a spot. The old guys I dunno about but a few of them will probably get a camp spot at least.

LGHG preliminary roster(a few SEL final players probably incoming):

25 GK Markström Jacob Brynäs IF SWE 31.01.90 Gävle 194 84 L
35 GK Lindbäck Anders Timrå IK SWE 03.05.88 Gävle 198 85 L
50 GK Gustavsson Jonas Toronto Maple Leafs CAN 24.10.84 Stockholm 191 82 L

3 D Ekman Larsson Oliver Leksands IF SWE 17.07.91 Karlskrona 188 85 L
5 D Bäckman Christian Frölunda HC SWE 28.04.80 Alingsås 191 93 L
6 D Johansson Magnus Linköpings HC SWE 04.09.73 Linköping 178 82 R
7 D Rundblad David Skellefteå AIK SWE 08.10.90 Lycksele 189 89 R
8 D Lindström Sanny Färjestads BK SWE 24.12.79 Huddinge 187 96 L
10 D Fransson Johan Luleå HF SWE 18.02.85 Kalix 186 89 L
11 D Gunnarsson Carl Toronto Maple Leafs CAN 09.11.86 Örebro 188 86 L
77 D Hedman Victor Tampa Bay Lightning USA 18.12.90 Örnsköldsvik 198 100 L

9 F Mårtensson Tony Linköpings HC SWE 23.06.80 Märsta 184 89 L
12 F Pettersson Fredrik Frölunda HC SWE 10.06.87 Göteborg 178 83 R
18 F Bergfors Nicklas Atlanta Thrashers USA 07.03.87 Södertälje 179 88 R
21 F Ericsson Jimmie Skellefteå AIK SWE 22.02.80 Skellefteå 188 92 L
22 F Persson Niklas HC Neftekhimik, Nizhnekamsk RUS 26.03.79 Nynäshamn 188 93 L
23 F Omark Linus Dynamo, Moscow RUS 05.02.87 Övertorneå 179 78 L
24 F Harju Johan Dynamo, Moscow RUS 15.05.86 Övertorneå 190 95 L
51 F Wallin Rickard Toronto Maple Leafs CAN 09.04.80 Stockholm 191 91 L
71 F Andersson Jonas Dynamo Minsk RUS 24.02.81 Stockholm 188 95 L

Troublesome news, Davidsson misses the WC due to knee injury:
http://www.hockeysverige.se/news_sho...tml?id=9764873

IMO Davidsson and Mårtensson are the only two Swedish centermen outside the NHL that is playing at a high international level.

I wonder what defencemen are closest to being cut. Fransson, OEL, Rundblad, Lindström?

As I see it with Karlsson coming, him, Bäckman, Johansson, Gunnarsson and Hedman are locks. Rest will probably be decided in the exhibition games and/or NHL additions.

I hope Lindström will be cut, but it will probably one of the other three since they fill the same role as offensive D-mans, while Lindström is more of a stay-at-home defencemen

Talking about stay-at-home defencemen, what are the chances of Tallinder joining the squad? I guess they're quite slim since he has never played WC at all

Tallinder hasn't declined but is doubtful. Only Olympic players in are Gustavsson, Johansson and Weinhandl so I don't expect him to come. In that regard Sanny probably has a big chance to stay.. There will still be one or two more spots though depending on 7 or 8 D, and I guess Rundblad would get the first spot out of the other three.

Yes, but he had been playing with a broken hand in the playoffs.

I'm kind of surprised Oscar Moller and Henrik Karlsson aren't going.

As an Oilers fan, I'm excited to see Omark and MPS.

Oscar is still in the AHL playoffs with Manchester.

Sweden has locked down Gustavsson, Markström and Lindbäck as the three goalies.

Is there any chance to see MPS at the WC? Or do you think he's going to be cut? Hopefully Backstrom will come too. It would be nice to see him playing with Bergfors, whom I remember he played with in his junior days at WJC.

MPS has a great chance to play the WCs, and he should.

This is a sad state of affairs. Remembering the days when Sundin and others was happy to play the world championship. This has to be the weakest Swedish team in many years.

Good news is that the last time Sweden had close to no NHL players they did quite well, the bad news is that Kenny Jönsson isn't sporting the yellow and blue this time.

I'm way out of the loop so I'll just ask; Is Junland an option? Has he been invited and declined, or not been invited at all? He's coming off a great year in the AHL, and has already played for Tre Kronor. He should be a shoe in on this roster IMO.
