Are Swedes the New Russians?

After gutting it out for the gold medal in Turin Lunqvist, Lidstrom, Kromberg, Holstrom and Alfreddson were short a ventricle in the playoffs. The only Swedes that distinguished themselves were Zetterberg and ol’ Floppa Forsberg (kinda’).

Meanwhile, Silver Medal Finns like Selanne, Niiemene and Numminen continue the charge.
