Team Finland @ 2014 WJC

So next year Raipe(not confirmed) is coaching again. And there has been some rumors that Valtonen is assistant coach. So basically this department sucks.

Our goalies look good with two returnees. Also guys like Saros and Husso are year older.

Defense is maybe the best finnish defense of all time. Four returnees including two first rounders: Määttä and Ristolainen(imo lock to first round). Vainonen, Lindell, Tikkinen, Lehtonen, Saari and Mäkinen are candidates for the team.

Four players will return: potential first line and fourth line center. This time Haapala, H.Ikonen and J.Ikonen will be on team. We lose some size in offense and we lack good centers.

List of the players who are candidates for the team:

G Joonas Korpisalo (-94)
G Janne Juvonen (-94)
G Juuse Saros (-95)
G Ville Husso (-95)
G Kaapo Kähkönen (-96)
