Only saw half the game, but the Swedish team-defence and the goalie looked really sloppy.

The Czech's had a lot of chances.

God forbid anyone trying something out of the ordinary. How about we just let players score on wrist shots, that oughta draw a big crowd..
While I realize that it's a competition, there's no need to try that. That's just the way I see it.

Totally depends on one's mind-set, IMO.

Also, I have no problem with running up the score as long as teams stay away from the "hot-dogging" kind of plays.

Exactly. Theres no mercy in this sport - if you have the opportunity to legally check a player out of the game, you'll do it, every time. Hence, caring about someones "feelings" is bullsh!t. You should embarrass people everytime you have the opportunity to do so.

The Canadian media is saying that his agent has advised him against playing and risking further injury. Tough decision for the kid, but I'd think it'd be wise to skip a game that is non-elimination. Maybe wishing thinking

What really impresses me with this team is that they really seem to believe in the system they are playing. With Mårts they tried playing it but did a half assed job and reverted to a typical Swedish game as soon as a play went wrong and they got insecure.

Wildly competitive dude. He's been commended in junior and the pros for already behaving like a pro. Sault Ste Marie coach last year said as soon as he came in he taught the whole team about professional work ethic. This guy is just very very determined, considering he's my teams prospect...I love it.
