RE: 2012 IIHF World Championship
After the dust has settled, a couple of points: Finland played atrociously in the USA game, yes. But at the end of the day, our players aren't supermen. On paper, at least Canada, USA, Sweden and Russia have better teams. And it shows. Our second line-up has not lived up to the expectations set by the championship last year. Granlund is a shadow of his former self.

I sincerely hope Jalonen & co. will come up with some creative solutions to the line-ups. But I fear its too late to realize that that the teams we played in EHT games aren't the same we're playing now, and that we simply can't play like this against the major hockey nations.

Btw, Slovakia - France at 3-3, lol.

What an upset! Looks like Slovakia is going to beat Canada and advance to the semis!

I'm so happy for Slovakia! Canada shouldn't win anything, especially not after such sneaky ugly playing.

Great game! Smile

Now Finland and it'll be the first time teams I'm rooting for are actually doing something. Big Grin

Wow, what a crazy day Eek 3/4 underdogs advance to the semifinals, and even though I didn't see the game it looks like Norway put up an impressive fight against Russia as well.

I feel kind of bad for Team Sweden, though. Alfredsson, Bäckström, Enroth, Ericsson, Eriksson, Franzén, Hedman, Hjalmarsson, Hörnqvist, Karlsson, Kronwall, Krüger, Landeskog, Silfverberg, Stralberg, Zetterberg - the Swedes really meant business this year after last year's defeat. And then there was also the fiasco with the ticket sales, which was apparently even worse than in Finland: according to Aftonbladet, they didn't even sell out Globen in the quarterfinals...

But only kind of, since Finland is in the semifinals anyway cool Let's barbecue!

cool

Still can't believe it.

Too bad for Sweden, I really didn't see them dropping out at this point. Then again, all my expectations were smashed today, and Finland managed to squeeze a victory out of that fight!
