Right now i'd put the D as following:

Olli Määttä - Juuso Vainio
Ville Pokka - Julius Honka
Mikko Vainonen - Esa Lindell
Niklas Tikkinen

Actually feels like i missed someone..?
Karri Kivi spoke very highly of Mikke Levo when he was a Nelonen's studio guy on Ilves game so i'd imagine he will be on the team over Lindell.

Also i think there is no change Ristolainen is available, given how well he has played on the pre-season. Määttä will probably go back to London when Letang is healthy.

So something like


Määttä-Pokka
Vainonen-Honka
Levo-Vainio
Tikkinen

Tikkinen can also play as a forward so he is the ideal guy for 7th d-man role

Goalies also look great as we have 3 guys who are sm-liiga regulars with Setänen,Saros and Juvonen
