Sweden and the Czechs look pretty good. I also think Slovakia is going to do alot better than they did in the World Cup since they should have a healthy team. The Czechs are the team i'm worried about the most though. They always give Canada a run for our money and this time should be no different.

Slovakia, has a very good team. They`re defense is pretty good. Forwards are very strong and their goalie is the weakess part of the team.

Sweden, always has a good team, and this line up keeps the thread.

Czech have 2 very good goalies, they should push eachother for the starting role, but I still think Hasek will have it.


All in all these Olympics coming up should be very good and entertaining.

I'm really surprised Hamrlik didn't make the Czech team.

the czech squad looks like a medal bound roster. hasek and jagr.

as do the sweeds, they have a goalie alone that can win it all. very internationally expoused in the nets. plus forsberg can win it on any givin day

I agree. That duo easily matches Canada. You don't really have to count the 3rd goalie because the odds of him playing are slim.

Team Canada will have to be at its best to beat them. They play them in the final round robin game. That game will more than likely be a battle for 1st place in the pool.

Niklas Kronwall made the team? I though he was going to be out for almost the whole season with an injury.

interesting rosters. some big names were left off: palffy, nylander, holmstrom. and it looks like the czech roster went with youth, leaving sykora, hamrlik, and holik at home. strange, though, that they would undergo a youth movement and not pick ales kotalik, who in my opinion has been better this season than erat, hemsky, and prucha.

Exactly what I was thinking. Hamrlik is a great "D" and could be very valuble agianst Jarome Iginla when they play Canada.
