Simple Question - Canada Or Sweden?

What's your gut/heart/brain telling you, Canada or Sweden in the men's gold medal game tomorrow?

I am torn, my head tells me Canada but my gut says Sweden.  If forced to make a decision, I say Canada with a late goal from Getzlaf.

Your thoughts?

The Swedes against Carey Price looks way more promising than the Canadians against Lunqvist.

I like Babcock and Holland plenty, I love Canada as a country & I want them to earn all of the “symbolic” national victories they can… except for this one. I want Kronwall/Ericsson playing over 20’min each and being Sweden’s backbone tomorrow, I want Alfredsson to be the nation’s hero with the game winning goal, and I want Gustavsson & Nyquist to listen to their national anthem with a medal around their neck.

(If Canada lost the Gold in Vanc. I’d probably root for them this time, but since they got theirs I want to see Sweden get their 3rd.)

I wish Seabrook was in this game, then if could call it Kronwall with game winner via a deflection off Seabrook. That would be a wee bit of redemption for Kronner.

Brain says Canada.

Heart says Sweden.

Gut says that I got make sure I’ve got enough snacks and adult beverages to survive the game.
