I pretty much agree with this roster, except that I'd replace Lajunen with Nokelainen. Petrell should also be considered for 4th line wing, most likely competing with Joensuu for that spot. I'm also still hoping that OJ changes his mind after J. Jalonen's gone and joins the team to center the 2nd line (I'm unsure if Granlund will be ready for that duty in Sochi).

Not expecting much from the Sochi team, I'm afraid. We should be much better off in 2018 when the new generation's mature enough to play in the Olympics and shoulder responsibility.
