I am assuming this is the best place to post this. I was wondering who is more revered in Finland Teemu Selanne or Saku Koivu? Obviously Selanne has had the better career, but Koivu is the captain of the national team and has had his own fair share of success. Back in Finland who is more revered to the public? The better player or the better leader?
Even tho, got to be fair for Koivu. He is miles ahead of Selšnne, when it comes to leadership and grit. But let's just thank the media in Finland, it just so happens, it's Helsinki oriented. Koivu doesn't get the press coverage he should.
I don't draw a line between those 2 really, both have contributed so much for hockey, and for this day Finnish hockey.
