The teams were pretty even talentwise, did you look the team Finland's roster, this was pretty much Finland's "team E" or something. You can't expect a team whose top player in the game is Ville "vitun" Vahalahti to compete against a well formed national team...(yeah, even if it's "only" Hungary)

Pretty even talentwise? Come on how many Hungarians would have had a shot to make SM Liiga roster?

That's said, result means nothing, as Riddarn pointed out, Sweden lost to Hungary 2 years ago. Doesn't change the fact that Hungary will most likely get trashed at Worlds.

All in all, even though the match was fairly insignificant, wins like these could be important for the development of Hungarian icehockey. It always helps with the popularity of the sport if you win as an underdog.

Oh oh, better press the panic button! Fire the coach, disband the entire Finnish hockey program because they lost one game to a bad team.

Get over it! This was a team that would probably have lost to any mestis league outfit on a good day.

Sweden lost to Hungary 2 to 1, but came back the next day and won 7 to 1.

Finland plays Hungary again today in Miskolc.

As mentioned, this was not Finland's A-team or even their B-team so this was a pretty meaningless game from a Finnish perspective. From a Hungarian perspective, it was quite eventful and will likely have a postive effect on the continuning development of the sport in Hungary.

It's not like we lost against a subpar team in the quarterfinal of the olympics.

I hope that Hungary gets a major uplift from playing in the A champs and hopefully gets back there one day (this year looks grim, tough group). I want both Hungary and Estonia in there!

It is 6 to 0 for Finland in the third period.

Hungary will have a tough time this year in Switzerland. I think the hope is that the next generation of players (those born in the 90's) will be more successful.

Hungary is indeed a cool nation, for the ones who like football (soccer as the uncivilized people call it ) and know a little history about it Hungary were quite a good team in the 1950-1960's. Would be awesome if they could manage to create a good hockey team aswell.

The most surprising thing to me here is the number of spectators in the arena - 8600. Would never think it could be that popular in Hungary

We should fire Jalonen.

Finland must win HUngary every time and every team, even if I play in the left wing we should win. Period.
