Oh yeah. I actually didn't even remember that. I remember that bad impersonation of Ortio though which doesn't remind me of Jortikka at all. Should've seen the connection there that he was indeed U-20 coach then.
Anyways Jortikka is better option than the 2 previous ones, but easy to say now after the team is eliminated. Before the tournament I thought Rindell would be a good fit, but him & Tomek can't seem to get the players coached properly mentally and that's probably more important than anything in U-20.
Wonder if our bigger coach names are even afraid to coach in U-20 now as it may cause some damage to their careers/reputations if they fail. That certainly didn't help Rindell's career. Kari Jalonen would be my #1 pick for men's NT and he'd be the perfect choice for U-20 also, but he'll never do that I'm afraid.
