Sweden is still carrying 27 players on the roster, so I guess they need to cut a few.

Looks like a strong team though! 8-)
Out of the 27, 21 are already drafted by NHL teams, 5 in the first round and 5 in the second, and three are slated to go in the first round in 2018 (Rasmus Dahlin, ranked #1 by most scouting reports, Isac Lundeström, ranked #15-30 and Jacob Olofsson, ranked #20-32.

The most interesting players to watch are probably those already drafted in the first round, plus Rasmus Dahlin:

#7 Timothy Liljegren (D) 6'0" 192 lb, drafted # 17 in 2017 by Toronto
#8 Rasmus Dahlin (D) 6'2" 183 lb, has been playing in the SHL since age 16, predicted to go first in the 2018 draft
#24 Lias Andersson (C) 5'11" 198 lb, drafted #7 in 2017 by the NY Rangers
#26 Erik Brännström (D) 5'10" 181 lb, drafted #15 in 2017 by Las Vegas
# ? Alexander Nylander (RW/LW) 6'1" 192 lb, drafted #8 in 2016 by Calgary (now belongs to Buffalo)

and of course...

#14 Elias Pettersson (C/RW) 6'2" 165 lb, drafted #5 in 2017 by Vancouver ! :D

I think it might be an idea to put this tourney up to CC Chat because we have so many teams to watch and players
to comment on. Just a thought. I don't want to make the call.

By the way, Merry Christmas !

Probably not a bad call to move it to the front page for a couple weeks. That way Dud won’t forget to comment in the proper thread after one of his legendary red wine and flap of bump benders

I wonder if the province of Ontario is getting to see Liljegren play while they give the bird to the west

Moving from the boards towards the centre, just as a Belarussian player blocks the goale's view, a quick release and the puck touches the gloveside shoulder on its way into the net. Great vision, great shot.

I love this guy! :D

Btw, Blob, it's Pettersson, with an O.
Danes and Norwegians have names ending in -sen.
Swedes, Icelanders and Scots end their patronyms with -son.

"Cut backs", fucking cut backs. You pay extra to get 3, 4 and 5?
Last few years, they gave a week or 10 days free for all bout this time.
Simple fact of the matter is, they just don't have people hired to cover it. :?: :?:

What's the deal with Gord Millers missing chin? It's all throat right to his bottom lip? I wonder if Reefer sports a similar non-chin?
