The national team is in a state of flux but AHL players joining Tre Kronor isn't a common occurrence, is it?

I agree that he's played well enough to get an invite, but don't agree about him being a shoo-in.

I thought OEL played well in thursday's game and think he has a good chance at that 7th or 8th defenseman role as well.

The team are not the strongest Sweden team but its one of the most interesting teams they ever put on ice. Its full of young upcoming players.

The no-sayers? Not good but I think the team will do good with out them, many of them can we both lose or have on the team and if they feel no pride to play in the Sweden national team, the team are better with out them.

Most of the Sweden top core in the NHL plays in Detroit and Vancouver. And they play to good in the SC so they will not be able to come. If Bäckström show up it will be a blessing.

Considering that Karlsson is young and that BÅG is BÅG, there is no shot for him to be on the first pairing even if he would be the best guy out there.

He tried to give Edler a shot not long ago, mostly to please the fans I guess... When that didn't work out at all and Edler looking pathetic (to say it kindly) he probably smiled as he now has even less of a reason to give young guys loads of ice time.

Nicklas Backstrom will not play WCH in Germany. A injury stop him.

I think this team is weak but very interesting with all young players. It will be very exciting to watch them play.

You'd think that, but historically it hasn't been the case. Each time since 1998 when the NHL allowed players to participate in the Olympics we've had plenty of Olympic returnees for the WC team. Also, the "no-list" has been growing steadily each year the time Bengt-Åke Gustafsson has been coach. I see a clear connection.

That list is not the longest one. One time in the late 90s or early 00s there were 35 or 40 nos I believe.

And I'd think quite a few of those would've been there if it hadn't been an olympic year, both those who were unhappy at not being selected and those who are exhausted.

I think swedish NHLers and other veteran players grow tired of their national team coaches quicker than in other countries where the players see it as playing for their country and not a certain coach (to some extent).

It was the case with Hardy and I think it is the case with BÅG as well.

I like this list!
With these players I feel we have a good chance!!

Oh, wait, these are the nos?

Seriously, there are some pretty interesting line combinations hidden above.

What i DO like about our team is there is finally some youth added which gets me interested. We will just have to do with what we got!

Are either Marcus Kruger or Gustav Nyquist going for Team Sweden?

I know both had huge seasons in their respective leagues and was looking forward to seeing them play internationally.

Gustav Nyquist? Sweden doesn't take in AHL players. There is no chance whatsoever on them having a NCAA player in the World Champs. This is not a jr competition.

Krüger is not on the roster for the LG hockey games and he has virtually no chance at making it.

BÅG should seriously swallow his pride and give Viktor Stålberg, Niclas Wallin, Fabian Brunnström, Andreas Thuresson, Oscar Möller and Mikael Backlund invites. Heck even Anders Eriksson. This team needs all help it can get.

Unfortunatly, none of those would make this team stronger, what we really need is some more offensive firepower and solid defensive D-men. I am worried that we have too many all-out-offensive d-men (Johansson, Rundblad, Fransson, Karlsson) and no-one who can "clean up" after them and should ideally be paired with a stay-at-home defenceman but in the current squad only Lindström could be classified as one

More players used to north american hockey will help this team to play a more direct, physical and effective hockey. Even if they are AHL or borderline NHL:rs they are to be prefered over low tempo peripheral players like Weinhandl.

I share your thoughts about the defense. Not enough good defensive specialists. We have really only one defense-first player, Lindström, and he's not nearly good enough.

I'm Canadian, and will obviously be rooting for Canada. But, I'm going to faithfully watch the Swedish games. I love Swede hockey players. Good luck guys.

What happened? Something against those players, or not wanting to much NA/NHL content?

BÅG's "policy" is if two players are equal, there is no point in bringing the NA guy over.

Btw, Nic Wallin was traded to San Jose, he's still playing.

The final roster, officially? I hope the way MPS plays helps the Oilers decide whether they should bring him over this year or let him play another season in Sweden.
