I don't know man. I would imagine qualifying into World Cup or even Euro Cup would generate a much bigger buzz in Finland than winning Olympic gold in hockey. Not to mention the difference of what type of impact they would have on the respective sports in Finland. The former would draw a lot more Finnish football fans, a number that is quite limited compared to the number of hockey fans.
