Tomi Pettinen - Mikko Jokelä
Lasse Kukkonen - Mikko Luoma
Juha Alen - Tom Koivistu

I'd put my money on Sweden due to a much better group of defensemen and forwards. But there's a big risk that Lehtonen would win the game for Finland.

Sweden looks stronger "as is", but if each player's quality were multiplied with how big a part of the season he played in the A, it would be very even.

Better forwards and dmen on paper, -> Sweden

Most likely to win match -> Finland

With Lehtonen stopping upto 50 shots for fun, all Finland needs is 1 goal from that bunch.. =)

Pretty hard to tell who would win that game.

Not many of those swedish players are full time AHL:ers though. Weinhandl, Sjöström, Johansson, Timander, Bäckman and Eriksson all saw plenty of ice time in the NHL. Ölvestad, Hannula and Mårtensson will be back in the SEL next year.
