Thats what came into my mind in 30sec and thats 'nuf said. No one of them is retired from national team. Olli Jokinen is only one who keeps hes retirement.
Selänne and especially Koivu have said publicly that they will not play anymore and that they'll leave the younger generation to take the reins. Salo isn't coming into the nt anymore either he might not even play in the NHL anymore next year. Timonen is also too old to play in the future not to mention that he isn't available. If you had read my post I said that we have the best players that are available. Nummelin is far from being capable of belonging to any "dream team" anymore. Bergenheim and Pitkänen i mentioned in my post already and they are the only players that could play for Finland in future competitions. Vatanen I forgot and he would be a clear improvement tho.
