It's obvious the IIHF puts exponentially more stock in their World Championship than anything else, which is played in May when alot of the best players are competing for a little something more important called the Stanley Cup.
When all the best players are on the ice I just don't see Finland
as being better than Canada, Russia, Sweden, or even the US.
You should read my thread, here:
and learn that whichever team on paper looks stronger doesn't necessarily mean anything in reality, as you can see by the results demonstrated by Finland.
