That's pretty much how it's going to end up looking like IMO. Some wildcards out there like Selänne and Leino who could be included if everything goes well, or in Teemu's case if he continues playing after next season but that's about it. Convincing Olli to return for these Olympics is pretty important as he would be a quite noticeable upgrade at center and would let us switch Granlund to wing. I don't know if he's ready to play center at Olympic-level yet and is probably going to spend his first few seasons as winger in the NHL anyways, but it seems Olli has made his decision and is going to hold on to it.
That defense looks, well let's say Rinne needs to bring his A game if we want to keep our medal-streak going.
