It seems likely that Mr. Fixit, Jere Lehtinen is joining the Finnish squad. Peltonen-Koivu-Lehtinen again, albeit with Mikko, not Saku.

Isn't Matthew Lombardi playing for Canada?

Sigh, that shows me for going with the lists the IIHF had on their site.

Thanks guys; I'll update this list.

Amazing that with all of the Swedish talent there is, they can only muster up 1 NHLer. I supposed if either VAN or DET was eliminated in the 1st round, that number would be closer to 10.

Agreed pj, the Swedish team is surprisingly light on NHLers. They do have Nicklas Backstrom, a hopefully soon-to-be-signed Capitals first-rounder. But as you said, many high-profile Swedes (e.g., Zetterberg) are still in the NHL playoffs; with Forsberg and Sundin declining to attend, Sweden will have a tougher road to success than usual.
