OT: I see. But, I don't think many Swedes know this. Maybe I'm making a mountain out of a molehill here, but I never liked the word "Finne", and I don't think it belongs in the media. As you point out, Peltola and Niskanen probably don't give a rat's as long as their team mates respect them. I just think the Örebro media should recognize and appreciate the caliber of players ÖHK just landed and be a little bit more respectful.

OK... I'll get off my soapbox.
