Haapala better than J. Ikonen...? What makes you think that? J. Ikonen is much more talented of these two. Haapala is a year (?) older but that's about it. He was productive in the start of the season but Barkov was the real contributor behind those points, it seems.
I find it hard to believe that Haapala would make the team if J. Ikonen didn't. Furthermore, Aaltonen has played with Ikonen so, it's only natrual to keep them together.
There seems to be no free slot for Haapala in the WJC squad? Maybe 13th forward.
Anyways, As I said if this team won't take a medal it's a disappointment and disgrace---. Only Canada has a stronger team on paper.
