Yeahno, that was the WJC. The World Championship starts on May 10th.

Official website: https://www.iihf.com/en/events/2019/wm

According to Swedish media both Spettersson and Markström have expressed a wish to participate! 8-)

Way too early for Elias to head out to the golf course (or juggling on a monocycle or whatever).
I need to see some more highlight reel stuff from him to keep me good over the summer.

Too early to get a grip on the rosters but both Dahlin and Pettersson will supposedly play for Sweden. Good!
They need the experience. We must prep them for a possible 2026 Olympic tournament in Stockholm..... 8-)

In retrospect, maybe LE finds his old game and comes back next year a new man. A 55-60 point man.
Is that asking too much?

No, not at all. That's what we all dream of and what he gets paid for.

In all due respect, Loui has scored 57 points (30G 27A) in 61 games playing for Sweden.
The last time he played in a world championship tournament (2015) he had 10 points in 8 games.

It's weird, he went from 63 points for the Bruins in 15/16, to just 24 in 16/17 playing for the Canucks.
I've never understood what happened. And he had proven chemistry with the twins on the national team.
It's just weird. Different system? Nagging injury? What happened?
