</p> The 2014-15 season has been a difficult one for Finland‘s U18 team. Both at the 2014 Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament in August and in the most recent Five Nations Tournament, the squad has been uncharacteristically charitable in giving up scoring opportunities and have left their goaltenders out to dry at times.

Finland has a reputation for having small but talented skaters who play a strong game collectively to give teams with elite NHL prospects fits. This year’s U18 squad has a few of those prospects of their own in players like Puljujarvi, Julius Nattinen and Patrik Laine, but cohesion will be a challenge.
When you mention those three, do you refer to the "small but talented skaters" or "elite NHL prospects" in the first sentence? Well, when you know those guys aren't small it's pretty easy to deduce, but a less knowledgeable reader might end up making the mistake.
