It's hard to nominate a "stand-out" hockey town from Finland. Tampere is the one with the biggest traditions, but it has been a mediocre place at best in the last decades in terms of success, attendance and player production.
Turku was pretty dominant in the 90's, but they're in a really difficult situation at the moment.
Oulu is a sound choice right now. Lots of good homegrown players and a successful decade behind them.
I wasn't aware that in order to be called a "hockey town", the local team(s) must be constantly winning and successful.
"S***w culture and traditions and fanatical followers, if the team is pish, the town is pish."
