Welp, turns out that Canada is a little better than Denmark.
I wish to hell I’d never said "Winning isn’t everything it’s the only thing". What I believe is, if you go out on a football field, or any endeavour in life, and you leave every fibre of what you have on the field, then you’ve won.

Holmberg ( 29 ) and Sandin ( 8 ) are both on Sweden's second line/pair, so they'll be working together quite a bit.

Carlton's favoured child Erik Brannstrom opens the scoring.

Hate to say it, cause of national pride and whatnot, but I found the diving and embellishment from Comtois in both games disgraceful.

That’s not what I envisioned when I was told the game featured two Swiss misses.

Team Canada finishes the Preliminary Round in second in Group A.  Russia takes top spot.

Team Canada has been the tournament's highest scoring country while allowing the fewest goals against of any as well.

Team Sweden finishes in first place in Group B, while Team USA grabs second spot.

In reference to your post, yes there are others who share that viewpoint on Comtois, mainly his diving more than even his embellishments.  So much so that it got the ire of Team Russia's Kim Kostin:
