Peter Forsberg held nothing back when being interviewed by a Swedish television station. Forsberg told TV 4 that Canada decides to run things in the hockey world, reports the Swedish TV 4.
"They determine the practice hours, they run everything," Forsberg told TV 4 (translated to English).
Forsberg also pointed to what he sees as being a questionable call in last year's World Championships Final against Team Canada. While Sweden led 2-0, Forsberg received a dirty hit from Team Canada's Rob Niedermayer.
"Had any other player, from another team than Canada done the same thing, it would have cost him five minutes and a game misconduct," Forsberg said.
Team Canada went on to beat the Swedes in the final and many experts pointed to that incident as being the turning point in the game.

I say Peter can suck a fat one, theres a reason Canada has so much push when is comes to hockey. And as for blaming the World Championship loss on a hit, well thats just sour grapes, and shows the true sportsmanship of the guy. Great players, thats about it.

Forsberg is a whiner and he'd take a cheap shot if he had the chance...

I really really really really really dislike Forsberg.

He's just bitter that Canada has had more success then Sweden in recent years.

Agreed. Forsberg has always been a whiner.
And he is one of the cheapest, dirtiest players I've ever seen.

I guess he's never seen what happens when Canada plays with a European Ref, eh?
