Something tells me we'll be back with the 13-7 skater model (even if Jalonen is still coaching), considering the concept of taxi squads was removed from the equation for olympic hockey beginning from Vancouver. You'll have the 20 skaters you name and if one or more of them gets sidelined, woe for you.
Anyway, here's a Jalonen version...
Niskala - Vatanen
Timonen - Lepistö
Lydman - Väänänen
Filppula - M.Koivu - Ruutu
Korpikoski - Immonen - Granlund
Bergenheim - Kontiola - Jokinen
Komarov - S.Koivu - Lajunen
No, I didn't forget Pitkänen. He will simply get snubbed, because Jalonen has the cojones to do that due to Joni not being a Meidän peli kind of guy. Leino won't get an invite for the same reason, unless he suddenly starts producing like back in Philly.
That being said, I do hope for two things for the upcoming season... 1) Armia plays the lights out and makes the WHC squad, and 2) Määttä does the same.
