I don’t want to be harsh but… it was extremely disappointing the way team Sweden played in 2010 at the Olympic games. I thought it was going to be the most parity in women’s hockey, and team Sweden played one of the worst tournaments I’ve ever seen them play. And as a former player and someone who was hoping the game was going to grow and be on that big stage and have more parity, this program just let women’s hockey down. I’ll say it as bluntly as that. And Sweden is a “hockey nation” on the men’s side, they’re gold medal favourites. And to me, in this day and age, if you don’t have a men’s and women’s hockey team you’re not a “hockey nation” anymore. And that’s my true opinion, especially those top 6 hockey nations on the men’s side — Russia, Sweden, the Czech Republic… I mean it just doesn’t work that way anymore.
