I am not so sure that this team Finland really could manhandle the likes of France and Kazakhstan

Well to be honest this doesn't look that bad... a goal would be nice though.

I think it was on a Yahoo column where I read after the Olympics, "Oli Jokkinen has announced his retirement from international hockey. Which automatically makes Finland the favorites in Sochi 2014."

Yeah it doesn't look too bad... for now. If everything goes like we're used to, we'll struggle to score and USA will score the winning goal in the 3rd period and win the game.

You can't say that. Burke is the American GM, not Finland's.

USA creating a lot of good chances, too bad they're not scoring on any of them.

It doesn't look good for the Finns, unfortunately. They don't give me impression that they are able to score.
According to the commentator in german TV the last time Finland played relegation round was 1989!

Shoulder injury, think it was operated on already.

Injured. I saw him in the studio as an analyst for Finnish tv. If we had him on this team things could be different.

They needed him more as a commentator in the studio...

Actually, he had shoulder injury and there was (will be?) surgery.

Ahh thank you. We could really use a player like Tuomo Ruutu right now. Too bad he's out.

Is this tournament Jussi Jokinen's way of showing that he wasn't good enough for the olympics anyway?

No hustle and very little quality play...

He must be very tired. He should at least be tried in the middle again.
