We got eliminated from the elite group...:retard:

We conceded a goal in the 59th minute of our last match that relegated us.

But we should be back soon, because our group for next year's Division I WC is fairly easy. :)

Oh come on, even half of the players don't want to be there - they want to be in the Stanley Cup Playoffs ;)

That said, congrats to Sweden, clearly the best hockey nation this year :)
