That's basicly all the NHL d-men you have (Laakso and Lepistö is playing their way out of the league).

In a short tournament on big ice there is going to be a lot of teams with a real chance of reaching the finals, Finland needs to have some luck with that defense if you are going to be one of those teams.
Oh wasn't talking about Finland's chances of winning (which are slim to say at least), but how in the short tournament winning the bronze medal can be relatively easy. Finland sucked for the most of the last Olympics and still went home with a medal.
