    Like I said before, I'd have Palmu in all day long but based on what I think is more realistic:

    Tolvanen-Kontiola-Peltola
    Juntilla-Kempainnen-Hartikinen
    Osala-Koskiranta-Pyorala
    Philstrom-Niemi-Antilla
    +Lajunen, Manninen

    Lepistö - Hietanen
    Heiskanen - Jokipakka
    Lehtonen - V.Lajunen
    Virtanen - Ohtamaa

    Koskinen

    I think the Karjala went really really well. Agree above that the third line just never got going.

    Major pluses:
    The system works with these players
    Tolvanen + Heiskanan pass test with flying colours
    4th line is going to cause damage.

    Minus:
    The main one is lack of backup for Koskinen. Lets get the cotton wool out now.

    3rd line. Its, just not ironed out yet like the other lines. Its not so much a minus as something to work on.

    Saivenanen - terrible tournament. Poor fella. Needs to light up at club level now. Hope he finds some form.

    Wilcard: Korpikoski-Be interesting to see how he goes but he will certainly need to perform to make the team. No shoe in my mind.

    I hope Jarkko Immonen gets a chance.

    Probably wouldn't hurt to give Henrik Borgstrom a good look either

    When is the deadline for Olympic hockey team rosters? Also, wondering if Jarkko Immonen has any chance? What about Korpikoski? Salmela?

    January 15th.

    I guess we'll know a month from now. I don't think any name we don't see in either of these two EHT legs will make it. Well, exceptions may be no-brainers like Hietanen or Osala if they for some reason or another have to decline Channel One Cup. But if Korpikoski, Immonen and Salmela don't feature by then, then I'd guess they're out of contention.

    I fully expect to see at least a couple of them in Moscow, though.

    Thanks File!

    Let's see who ends up going to the Channel One cup.
