Sweden will enter the 2014 Winter Olympics with a chip on its shoulder after a disappointing bronze medal defeat three years ago in Vancouver.

The Swedes were the defending gold medalists in 2010, but they became the fourth team from the Scandinavian country to not medal since 1980 (nine Olympics).

Since the 2010 Olympics, Sweden has developed some of the finest young players in the world, especially on the blue line. Many of these stars will play important roles in the team's success in Sochi, where the Swedes will attempt to win their third ice hockey gold medal since the 1990s, which would be the most of any nation (Canada also has two).

Let's take a look at a roster projection for Sweden, predict the best lines/pairings and determine where it will finish in Sochi.
