So? Hyypiä is old too, so may be we should write him off too? Johansson plays regularly for Finland, i think he should be in the squad...

Niki Mäenpää is out. He got injured in a street fight :?. Otto Fredrikson is taking his place.

I updated the squad a bit. There has been some changes because veterans like Jääskeläinen and Tihinen retired and next generation is going to replace the old players soon.
Guys like Kallio and Kolkka are unsure and now they wasn't even called for NT duty. Captain Hyypiä is unsure too, but I'm pretty sure that he will still play for NT because Tihinen retired.
I just watched interview of GK-coach Antti Niemi, and he said that right now Otto Fredrikson is 1st choice to play goalie.
