    I feel that while Sweden has more talent on paper, the Germans will want to rebound from their close loss against Russia. Should be interesting to see what happens.

    I think the Swedish team is skilled enough to avoid the hardworking physical playing Germans in this game and secure the win. Probably wont be a high scoring game so if the Germans can keep the score low they might have a small chance.

    I expect a clear victory for team Sweden. After the bitter loss against the czechs they want to finnish with the bronze medal at least. Germany will play their defensive hockey style again but it will not be enough to beat Sweden. I don't care much about the result today. It was fun to watch the german team during the last two weeks!

    The live ticker on IIHF's website calls Sweden-Germany Gold Medal Game... Oh dear... I wonder if they manage to fix it during the game.

    Indeed, a great tournament by team Deutschland - Viel Glück in spite the loss in Bronze game.

    Congrats to Swedes too, even though the move by Bengt-Åke Gustafsson to take a timeout and change the goalie at the last second in the Bronze game was absolutely tasteless. I don't know which point he _tried_ to make there but the only point he really made was showing what he is all about.

    Looking forward to seeing Swedish national team with new coach next year. I'm sure Swedes will have better success coming up compared to the past couple of years, making it up in medals in the upcoming years on continuous basis.

    Congrats to everybody !

    To Sweden for bronze.

    To Germany on excellent tournament ! If they had few more of their NHL-ers maybe they could reach finals or take bronze, but still great performances by Germans.

    I think he tried to get the most out of his last game as national coach and celebrate with his players. I agree that it could have been handled better.

    But a more successful run... I don't know if 9 straight semi-final showings can be anything but a successful run...

    Apparently the timeout was his response to criticism he received in the Swedish media
    for calling...or not calling, I'm not exactly sure ...a timeout yesterday against the Czechs. with 15 seconds to go.
    If that was the reason, it was a bad move on his part.
    All it did was rile Krupp, his team and the German fans.

    Yes it was because the media have always criticed the coach and blamed him for everything that goes wrong, the time out with 15 secs left in semi final become very big and his timeout they say was the reason sweden loss.

    Now in Bronzemedal game he did his last game as a coach, 0,7 secs left 3-1 in scoreboard and a one-time oppurtunity to prank media.

    Of course he couldnt resist that, i guess the swedish coach is the only one who could have a enough strong stomach to do that.

    Im glad he did to the media, coach got the last word.
