That Latvian coach hadn't obviously done his homework. Finland has a grand total of
CHL player in their roster, Määttä. The rest are SM-liiga regulars, and playing in visible roles, nonetheless. Of course, Määttä is supposed to be our best D-man so I guess that makes CHL a tougher league than SM-liiga...
Okay, Laurikainen is another CHL player, so I guess the Latvian coach figured the Canadian junior system has given him some mad hatch-opening skillz which made all the difference for us.
