Quick note on the Swedish Olympic roster which was just announced. Lidstrom, Kronwall, Zetterberg, and Holmstrom have been named to the team. Noticeable snub? Mikael Samuelsson. According to @sportsnetmurph (host for Canucks’ broadcasts), his reply to that was:
“I’ll probably regret saying this, but they can go fuck themselves.”
Right wings who were picked over Samuelsson were Daniel Alfredsson (injured), Loui Eriksson, and Frederik Modin.
