J. Jokinen isn't coming and same goes for Pitkänen. They both are without NHL-contracts and Pitkänen even got some kind of head injury in the ending minutes of the last game.

Pulkkinen is a beast. Boy that shot in his second goal...

Pitkänen was born with a head injury.

MTV3 hockey specialist Mika Kortelainen thinks that Pulkkinen isn't ready to be in the WC team - yet.

What do you think?

In the worst case he could be added as an extra forward to the roster, play him in the opening round robin games, if he sucks, bench him.

Regardless I don't think it would be too much of a gamble adding him to the final roster.

Fun fact: Mikko Koivu and Tuomo Ruutu have always won a medal when playing for men's national team.

I definately agree with that. He is still a really good player. But if he had an easier time adjusting to high-pressure situations (be it on the ice or off it), he would be one of the 5 best defensemen in the world.

Not really, he lacks defensive abilities. Half the time he gives up on the play, have you seen any canes games?

I agree that he is highly skilled (offensively) but otherwise he is not the most responsible d-man out there.

No. I hope finishing badly. Quarterfinal exit or relegation round so hopefully coach will be fired.

True


One more year next year I believe (according to his contract), and apparently he doesn't want to continue after 2012 anyways.

Not too many quality finnish coaches out there ready to take Jalonen's spot. I would rather hold on to him for few more years and then ask Suikkanen.

That game against Germany was brutal. Some horrible plays in defensive zone...
