Niinimaa leaves team Finland!! Niinimaa leaves team Finland of his own willingnes, because he`s not cabable to work with head Coach Raimo Summanen. People chemistry between Niinimaa and Summanen just doesn`t work. yle text tv (only in finnish) This is huge, I can`t remeber when was the last time finnish hockey player didn`t want to play in national team because of the coach. Altough there has been a lot of converstion about Summanen`s way to lead national team. It has come from board of finnish hockey federation, but also players have wondered Summanen`s hard demands in practises etc.
