I can't place Ruotsalainen, Sinisalo, Skriko or Ruuttu because I haven't seen any of them play at all.

never seen Skriko, Ruuttu or Sinisalo playing... can't put them to right place..
I think Kurri, Selanne and Numminen are absolutely 1-2-3. I'd put Lehtinen next, ahead of both Kipper and Koivu. Lehtinen has three selkes and a cup, plus has put up offensive numbers close to Koivu. Then I'd also put Kipper ahead of Koivu. Shorter career, but he's had more success than Saku in that shorter time. I think Esa's value to the Oilers is being grossly understated here. He needs to be up in 5th after Lehtinen and ahead of Kipper and Koivu. Jokinen has been an elite forward for 6 years now, he should be ahead of both D-men. The rest look about right.

1. Kurri
2. Selanne
3. Numminen
4. Lehtinen
5. Tikkanen
6. Kiprusoff
7. Koivu
8. Jokinen
9. Timonnen
10. Ruotsalainen
...and so on...

That is a weird list #2 is inexcusable, 6,8 and 9 well no idea how those guys make any top 10 Finnish list.

Were is Selanne who has a very good case to be #1?

Pekka Rautakallio belongs on there somewhere. Only played five years in North America (2 WHA, 3 NHL) but his numbers were superb for a defenseman. His final season he scored 68 points and returned to Finland to play five more seasons as a point a game dman.

Add Forsberg to that list.
