Oh the pain.





But Sweden is clearly one of the best teams of the tournament this year. They made the Czech look like a second rate hockey nation and have won their other games with ease. If they have a problem, it's that Swedish arrogance. Tongue

That was a wonderful year, gold in both World Championship and the Olympics - the only team who has ever managed to do that. In your face, Finland! Tongue Sweden had a lot of help from NHL people that year, don't think the team has ever been that strong.

Both Finland and Sweden have almost always been up there, in the top. And to be honest.. I don't mind if Finland wins, they've always been the "broderfolk" and as long as they can keep fkn Russia and Canada and all those smaller slavic countries away from the gold, then I'm happy.. Tongue

What about Italy this year..? I didn't even know they had a team. How are they doing?

Amazingly enough, they managed to beat Denmark, despite being the weakest team in the tournament.

Regarding the Swiss, I know this has been said for many years already, but they're really starting to become a hockey nation to be considered. I also hope the good development of Denmark and Norway continues. We want more Nordic hockey nations!

I've really no idea what else happened in 1953, but they finished 4th then. They're often among the strongest teams in the "B" tournament, and periodically make an appearance in the World Cup.

The only thing I know about Italy's hockey league is that it exists -- and that things can get a bit wild there at times: fans invading the rink, ref setting players' jerseys on fire, etc. Tongue

I like to look at the human self-model as a neurocomputational weapon, a certain data structure that the brain can activate from time to time.

Finland will take on France tonight. The team will wear black armbands to honour the former hockey player Pekka Marjamäki, who died last night.

Quote:Finland's Petri Kontiola (front), Lasse Kukkonen and Jussi Jokinen observe a minute of silence in memory of legendary Finnish defenceman Pekka Marjamäki who died of a heart attack, at the beginning of the Group H game France vs Finland in the 2012 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championships in Helsinki, Finland, on May 10, 2012.

Marjamäki represented Finland in ten World Championships and twice in the Olympics, and wore the blue and white national team sweater 251 times. He was voted into the World Championship 1975 All-Star Team and named the tournament's Best Defenceman.

The first loss for Finland. I didn't see the first period of the game but I understand Finland dominated that one. During the second and third periods it was mostly dominance from Canada. 3-5 victory to the Canadians.

One of your biggest problems is your goaltending, imo.
