Now this is a fucking roster. Christ on a bike.

Cash or Czech?

That defense is sick. The starting goalie is pretty good too.

It's Canada, and then the US when it comes to rosters on paper.

But, with goaltending, Olympic ice experience, and systems...Sweden will be very difficult to beat.

I don't think either other team is going to put out a defense as good as that.

Off the top of my head - Doughty, Burns, Weber, Keith and Subban

Both will.
It's the forward group hay Sweden can match the US

Drew Doughty
Duncan Keith
Mark Giodarno
PK Subban
Chris Letang
Shea Weber
Brett Burns
Alex Pietrangelo

I'd saw only Karllson would even make the Canadian roster on the backend

I always forget Doughty is Canadian for some reason...so there's that.

But I think OEM and Karlsson both would, maybe even Hedman. I don't think there's much to separate guys like Letang, Burns, Pietrangelo or Giordano from them.

Lundqvist on Being Named to Team Sweden (http://www.blueshirtsunited.com/video/lundqvist-being-named-team-sweden)

Warning: You may not pay attention to the interview, and just end up zoning out on Lundqvist in that suit.

I listed 8 defenseman.

Canada has 3 of the best 2 way defenseman in the league in Keith, Weber, and Doughty. Those 3 make any team.

You partner that up with 3 offensive defenseman
Subban, Karlsson, and Letang are probably the next 3 best in the world.

That's why I said only Karllson.
Hedman not OEM bump any of those 6

I'm surprised Klingberg didn't make the cut

I think Hedman and OEM could bump Subban and Letang....especially Letang. I don't think you need to partner a 2-way guy with an offensive guy, especially not when you're going to be playing against the best collections of talent in the world and both OEM and Hedman who are so much steadier than Subban could be more useful on a team that already has top-end talent.

Hedman is probably one of the most overrated defenseman in the NHL. I mean the stats are impressive, but then you watch the guy and holy fuck does he make and absolutely obscene amount of mistakes on almost every shift.
