Greetings to all members on this Finland board, I am from Canada, but most of the time I wish I could live in Finland, so hopefully I'll get to visit your wonderful country soon. Why so, you may ask? Well there are a few good reasons, mostly my admiration for Finnish hockey players (especially Saku, yes I'm a Habs fan) and also to meet some of the good friends i have made online as a member of the message board for Canadian rock band Danko Jones..www.dankojones.com/fanforum who just happen to have many fans from Europe in general, and several from Finland in paticular. Now back to hockey for a sec..must say it was nice to hear Flyers coach Ken Hitchcock praise the players coming into the NHL from Finland, basically saying that these players are the best trained in the basic skills, and as we all know, play with lots of heart and desire, always....I was not surprised with Finland's excellent performance in the World Cup of Hockey, heck I was pulling for them, and they almost emerged as Champs, great job.
Keep on rockin' Finland..Cheers:D
name: papa, hey I'm old and Danko Jones has a song called 'papa'
favourite team: Montreal Canadiens
music:rock, punk, metal, ska, rap
bands: Danko Jones, Orange Goblin,The Hives, Turbonegro, and a few from Finland: Flippin Beans, Wasted, Peer Günt, and a ska/punk band Evilsons

yes Finnish players have good basic skills, but sadly very rarely we see any super skills.. but heart and desire are good. I think hockey is special that way. no matter how much skill you see on the ice, I often find the match boring if it still lacks heart and desire. Whereas in soccer for example it is completely possible to enjoy a good game even though it should lack some personal extra desire from the players.

so what I mean is that a average soccer game beats a average hockey game
but a
super hockey game beats a super soccer game.
