It's not like there's too much room for variation anyway, at least if the purpose is to prepare for the WHC.

We already pretty much know the general composition of the team. On offence, Top-six will be Granlund, Immonen and whatever NHLers are available. Bottom six will possibly consist of a leftover NHLer or two plus some Jalonen familiars like N.Kapanen and Komarov.

Add Vatanen, and the D-core from Europe is pretty much what we see here. No need to complain of snubs, save for an odd case for Karalahti.

In total, that leaves maybe one or two slots to fill, and they will be for utility roles. If Jalonen wishes to cycle through a teamful of old familiars to make up his mind on those, we shouldn't really complain too much.
