Hello you all!
I've updated pool C 1986 and I have to especially apologize for the inaccuracy of the Bulgarian scoring stats.
Darth Yoda; I hope, that you haven't been greeted with yellow feathers and blue tar for you view - thinking about Lillehammer 1994.
OK, more seriously: I'd include the 1980-88 Olympic tournaments as serious ones. Since there was no WC tournament that year. The Olympic tournament was also a WC during 1920-1968.
Yes, I do know Johan Ollus, but unfortunately he isn't regarded that much in Finland. Finnish people consider the exhibition game in Tampere january 1928 as the true beginning of Finnish hockey. I haven't found his name from the official European Championship tournament rosters either.
I guess, that the European Championship tournament was for "nationals only", while with the LIHG tournaments the teams could also include foreign players.
All the best
