They'll find better (or at least more seasoned) grinders to replace Salomäki, no doubt, but you never know about D. There are far less surefire names for those slots.

Let's not forget that both Ristolainen and Pokka are now the same age as Vatanen was when he made his WHC debut in 2010. So if one or both of them look ready to take the step... who knows.

I do find this year's squad very interesting. After all, our Sochi team is far from locked down apart from a mere handful of names. So any of those guys who end up doing well for themselves here are going to enter contention like never before. And that also concerns key roles, not just fringe ones.
