Hello, i'm a Canadian living in Vancouver and ever sinse a few months ago, i've been obsessed with finnish hockey players...and I dont know why.

I'm sure all of you know alot more about Finnish players than I do so please tell me if my top 30 list should be changed and why. The list is based on the players' performance last year in the NHL.

1.Kiprusoff
2.Koivu
3.Jokinen
4.Timonen
5.Lehtinen
6.T.Ruutu
7.Pitkanen
8.S.Kapanen
9.Niinimaa
10.Selanne
11.Salo
12.Nurminen
13.Vaananen
14.Toskala

If you are basing this on JUST last years performance then i think Lehtinen should be lower on the list, he had injury problems but still i would expect alot more from him.

Hurme shouldn't be on that list. Berg is too high. Laaksonen is too low.

There was 37 Finns who played in NHL last year if I counted right. Hurme didn't play because of his injury.
