It's pretty confusing. Christian is Ruuttu, Jarkko and tuomo are Ruutu. . So, well done still.

But but. every all star, every hall of fame, on every top list.. there's one fellow and a legend. Called Raimo Helminen. Master of the Saucer Pass. While he has only minor NHL experience, he's the must. IMO You can't talk about Finnish hockey without Raipe. The best way a Canadian could understand his legend here in Finland...

..some say, that in Tampere (Raimo's home town), they've got this chant / song:

Gretzky is Canada's Raimo Helminen,
Raimo Helminen, Raimo Helminen!
Gretzky is Canada's Raimo Helminen,
Raimo Helminen, Raimo Helminen!

(melody: Yellow submarine)
