What if Finland would still be part of Sweden or Russia?

These kind of speculations are a bit silly, since they assume that apart from one little nudge in history,
else would still go the same way. Which is simply not true.
Had history taken a different path 200 years ago (or in 1917), the odds are many current players, if any, wouldn't have been born to begin with - thanks to a lot of people ending up somewhere wildly different over the years than what they did now.
Best note that I have nothing against speculations about how would a possible unified Sweden/Finland or Russia/Finland team look like, but keep any historical reasoning out of it. It's nothing but noise in this case.
The only justified case is the unified Czechoslovakian team, because technically all of the players still playing for either jersey were born before the country was split.
