Maybe I am being patriotic, but I honestly feel Finland has a fighting chance. Even against the ruskies.
They' ve never been overly good at choosing an optimal team, with people actually chosen for the roles they will play in the games (meaning 8min/game checking line with PK minutes)
Jalonen on the other hand excels in that.
We got an (almost too) experienced team,who know each other from earlier tournaments.
We got a solid 3 punch off top KHL goalies.
Almost all skaters play top roles in their KHL or swiss league teams.
Even some former NHL experience with Filppula, Vatanen and Uncle-Leo :D
Oh yeh, forgot that others played in NHL aswell few games.
Lehtonen, Pakarinen, Hartikainen, Kemppainen, Lindbohm, Ma. Granlund, Säteri...

He’s literally right. The Ducks are a bad team that is overperforming right now because Gibson’s on a hot streak and Terry is physically incapable of missing the net. The same thing happens almost every year with them, but within a week or two they’ll have overplayed Gibson to the point of exhaustion or injury (again), Terry’s shooting percentage will regress, and they’ll be back to being a mediocre, non-playoff team with only a few parts of their long-term roster set in stone, and several key parts of their current roster are UFAs this summer. They should totally trade Lindholm, Manson, and Rakell, Getzlaf if he wants to leave, and while Gibson is more of a 50/50 because his contract is solid and he has term, if they did trade him they’d likely bring back a haul that would be more beneficial to their long-term prospects. If they “stay the course” they’ll likely lose 1-3 of those key UFAs for nothing as they walk, Getzlaf will age out of being an impact player, and they’ll be mired in the middle, being too good with Zegras/McTavish/Drysdale/Gibson to properly tank for a good pick to complete their rebuild, while not being good enough to actually be competitive.</div></div>
Agree totally with this. Even with Gibson being 50/50 (might not be good idea to be too horrible for the youngsters to be able to win once in a while, and the contract is pretty good)
But if Gibson fetches an total haul from a desperate contender... good riddance. There are prospects like Dostal coming up right?
