Just 4 forwards from the CHL too, and hard to argue against any of them, especially their size...

Stone opens the scoring for Canada, then Sweden scores three goals in under 3 minutes, Zibanejad getting the third one. That was the 1st period. Chances are there will be a goaltending change because, by all accounts, Visentin was not very good.

And I'll keep saying it but they are gonna regret leaving Murphy out of the tournament. Sweden skated 2x better than Canada.

Mark Stone has looked incredible. His instincts are amazing, his hands are Cussing quick and his skating is more than fine. Shwartz also looks very good.
Zibby does not keep the puck very long I find, but his skating is crazy, so fast. Quick strike offense.

I actually don't think he's that fast. Or he's fast but takes a while to get going.

Just to be clear -- Stone has 2 goals in total; Zibby had two in this game (second one was into an empty net).

I'm sorry but Sweden looks better than Canada. They are a fast, hard-hitting team and have some serious depth. They have some guys that are very good in these tourneys (Johan Sundstrom, Victor Rask, William Karlsson, Johan Larsson, Zibby).

Pontus Åberg is now injured and is replaced by Jeremy Boyce-Rotevall. Åberg was Zibby's line mate.

Fredrik Claesson was solid defensively last night. He was out there in key situations. I couldn't find him at first because he isn't too noticeable and I didn't know his #.

Their goalie Gustavsson looks like he wears illegal equipment like Markström but he is a mammoth in the net and is one of the best goalies at this tourney IMO. 4 shutouts in the SEL this year.

John Klingberg looks like a very confident offensive d-man. Looks like the Stars got a good player in the 5th round. Good hockey sense and size.

Rickard Rakell plays with Stefan Noesen in Plymouth and you can tell he is used to, and loves, the North American style of game. He's on Zibby's line, so watch out for him in the coming weeks.

Sweden will medal for sure.

Also, Devante Smith-Pelly needs to stop focusing on hitting and start actually using his offensive abilities. Stop running around out there. Some of his hits were borderline dirty as well.
