Damn...Finland could be a nightmare in the quarters/semis, was hoping you would win this one. Would rather play any other team than Finland.

I have a bad feeling about Team Finland. No semblance of Our Game, woeful powerplay, offense consisted of individual efforts.

If they continue like this, we wont go very far in this tournament. Hopefully this is a wakeup call for the team

Assume Sami Kapanen's boy, Kasper, would have been slightly out of his depth in this tournament do you feel?

Next year's tournament is a possibility if he develops well.

Yup, he's too young and not good enough physically, He hasn't even debuted in jr. A yet, while all the rest of the team have been playing there in big roles and some even in SM-liiga.

Next year he could be a force though, for example he's a lot better now than Artturi Lehkonen, Joose Antonen, Aleksi Mustonen (all underagers for the tournament) were at the same age.

I think that last season Lehkonen was as good if not better than Kapanen this season (At least in some areas of the game). Different kind of players so not easy to compare.
