Also, looking through the list of Finnish players in the IIHF HoF, I wonder if Timo Jutila's name has come up yet. Keinonen and Marjamaki are also in there, apparently, but unlike Jutila they never played over here.
If Eliteprospects isn't lying to me, Jutila led the FEL or SEL in scoring from a defender 8 times, but he only won the FEL Best D award once. Hannu Virta only led defensemen scoring twice, but he won 4 FEL Best D awards in this same time. That makes me wonder if Jutila had some challenges defensively, or if Virta was just better. Hopefully we can get some more insight.
