I am so proud I can Burst... After the Olympic Game Gold not many NHL professionals joined the SWE team for the World Championship. All sport journalists in Sweden talked down this team and said they wouldn't make it to the quarter finals...


To play 6-0 ag USA, 5-4 ag CAN and then play the pants off CZE in the final with 4-0, with this team is HUGE for me.

This is historical, never has a country won the Olympic AND WC gold the same year.... We rock!!!

Congrats to Sweden. The best team won.

Both the Final and bronze matches were... well... not as close as i would've hoped. Swedes crushing czechs 4-0 and finland beating canada 5-0.

All credit to Sweden, they've ruled this year.

Hi, I'm Czech and I must say that our team didn't play very well in the finals. We were beaten square and fair. Good play on Sweden's part though.

However, the Czech team didn't have many experienced players either, our 'golden generation' (gold medals 1999 - 2001, 2006 - Jagr, Hasek, Ruzicka, ...) is slowly leaving the representation team and new faces are showing up. These guys aren't half bad though, so 2nd place was much appreciated.

These are new talents, still unexperienced in such big matches. Watch out for them in a year or two http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif.
