When all the best players are on the ice I just don't see Finland on paper as being better than Canada, Russia, Sweden, or even the US.
You should read my thread, here: http://hfboards.hockeysfuture.com/sh....php?t=1307791

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.
