Finland was part of Sweden for 700+ years--they lost Finland to Russia in 1815 (or so) and Finland became independent in late 1917. One thing the Russians did was move the capital to Helsinki (which had been a pretty small town) because it was closer to Russia--hence the Russian looking architecture in the pictures above. Ask any Finn how they feel about their neighbor to the east and it's a very short answer (usually not printable).
Anyway, I'm surprised at how few Finns have been drafted recently. Sweden has spent a lot of time and effort improving their youth hockey and it shows. The Finns need to get back on track.
