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.
