Same feeling. Canada is the better team and especially the first couple of games with jet lag and all that will suffer the lack of Granlund for Finland... I didn't see this a couple months ago but we're very weak at center position. It's sad because we have world class wingers.

Those who see the game, please give reports on Vatanen... And of course Armia.

I will. My eyes will be all over Armia, relative unknown among the top 10ers but right in my teams wheel house. Comes off like a guy that would benefit from a high end playmaker at center.

I'm interested in getting a look at Finland since that's Team USA's first opponent on Sunday.

My guess is 6-3 for canada. Armia 1+0 and Pulkkinen 1+1 Vatanen best player for the Finns. Ortio sucks again this year... (he's very medicore imo)

Couturier with a storng game 2+1

oh, and i hope there is going to be a stream for this
Great video, thanks for sharing.

You Swedes... Always hoping that your Finnish friends get massacred. I doubt it will be 10-2. Canada will win but with a closer score.

Yeah that's what I mean...just pointing it out because it could really take away from how Armia looks at this tournament. You may get a better look at his ability as an individual. If he's able to create offense without that center he becomes a very enticing prospect at the 5-10 area. If he struggles and looks like he needs that set up guy...that may be perceived as a limit. But obviously conclusions won't be made after one game.

I think this tournament is pretty big for Armia, this tournament can really "make" a prospect like him, but I doubt it has the potential to "break" him.

Don't wanna be cocky but I'm pretty sure Canada wins this one, I'm gonna say 7-1.

Sweet video.

Should be a good game. Finland will be finishing their hits.

Probably 4-2.

I see Granlund isn't in. Is it because of his injury? Will he be able to compete in the tournament if he's cleared by Saturday?

He won't play in the tournament. He's not available because of his concussion.

Ah, I thought he had a less serious injury for some reason. That's unfortunate, I was hoping to see him play. Good luck tonight! Hopefully it'll be a good game.

Isn't Finland supposed to be better this year for the first time in a while?

Yep. I would say this is our best team since 2007 or 2006.

Yes. Almost every player is playing in men's level and there are couple of 'future star' players Vatanen, Pulkkinen and Armia. Sad Granlund have concussion.
