Seems really weird. Supposedly he has used the same allergy medication for seven years...!
Was it just recently banned? Are there two versions with different content?
Regardless, the team doctors should be on top of this, and players at this level need to know which substances they are/are not allowed to take.
This definitely helped ruin our chances. I mean, the team still put in a half decent effort, but we don't really have the depth to afford to lose our three best centres. We can compete with Canada when it comes to top end talent, but not when it comes to depth.
Still. I doubt just adding Bäckström would have helped put us over the top. Canada played a terrific game. Sure, Nyqvist hit the inside of the post early on, and a goal at that point would have led to a different game, but Canada hit the post two or three times as well, so we can't even blame the puck for not bouncing our way...
Canada played near perfect defence and had forwards that could convert three mistakes by Sweden into goals.
