Finnish lineup: http://www.mtv3.fi/urheilu/jaakiekko...tshekki-peliin

Korpisalo (Laurikainen)

Määttä (A) - Ristolainen
Lindbohm (C) - Pokka
Riikola - Vainio
Auvinen

Salomäki (A) - Granlund - Armia
Teräväinen - Barkov - Lehkonen
Nykopp - Leino - Järveläinen
Hännikäinen - Salminen - Lamberg

Good guess, btw, only Salomäki has the second A, not Hännikäinen.


I'd say talentwise, both teams have a fair chance, maybe Finland with the edge. However, the Czech team still has quite a handful of junior players with them whereas the Finns have a full squad playing professionally among grown men. It should create the necessary difference. I don't expect an easy game and won't say the Czechs have no chance, but I'll be visibly disappointed if Finland doesn't win.
