My "point" is that the dream team you and others spoke of doesn't exist anymore. Generations have changed. Timonen, Salo, Koivu and Selšnne will never play in the NT again. Nor will Peltonen or Lehtinen who already quit. And then there is Jokinen who said he quit, but he just might come around yet. Just because they haven't directly said they won't play anymore doesn't mean they will.
