With Rasmus Dahlin coming into the NHL, and with the Sabres playing Elias Petterson today, I got to thinking about how strong of a hockey nation Sweden usually is, and it may be getting stronger in the next few years..with that said, does anyone think they may unseat Canada as having the best national/Olympic/world cup program in the near future? 

With Karlson, Hedmund, Ekman-Larson, Klingberg, Ekholm,  and eventually Dahlin on the D-unit, anyone might have a tough time matching that.

 

No matter what, I am looking forward to the next round of international competition tournaments.

Canada is still the best, but Team USA has the potential to ice their best team since...2002? I know they won the silver in 2010, but I think I like the 2002 lineup more as a whole. Anyway, I say they have the potential to ice their best roster in almost 2 decades because the last go 'round they decided to leave 30-goal scorers at home and have Dan Bylsma as the head coach. Hopefully they're less dumb next time.

It's a shame that it's next to impossible to piece together an international tournament that everyone cares about.  There's so much talent out there to the point that each of these teams could be a serious threat over a two week period.
