I don't care if the U20s don't play Meidän Peli, but I can't believe Rindell would make the same mistake as Helminen last year, which was not having a real strategy. The material's more than fine, but without a game plan we're gonna be screwed.
Just play the game. You don't need any of these simplistic game plans, they are just the biggest myth in hockey. Hockey isn't soccer or football, it's much simpler and more straightforward game. Too much "tactics" just kills the game intensity. I don't think these youngsters need any sophisticated "game plans". Just dumb and chase, keep it simple kind of high intensity hockey.
