    What are your expectations for the Finland Canada pre tourney game? What would you like to see from the Canadian team and from certain Canadian players?

    How about a PP goal from Team Canada? That'd be kinda cool.

    I would like to see this game to go to a shoot-out!


    Why?....Just so I can see Dave Cameron yelling at the Canadian shooter to "GET BACK .....GET BACK!!"

    I'm expecting this game to be dominated by Canada, simply because they played extremely sloppy, especially on the PP, against Sweden despite coming out on top with a 4-1 victory. If it wasn't for Olivier Roy, the result of that game could have been a lot different.

    Finland had a long journey to Kitchener and Canada has already had two pre-tourney games. I imagine that Canada will dominate most of the play.

    I wouldn't be too upset if we lost to Finland. I've kinda got a man crush on that country when it comes to hockey.

    I think Canada will dominate more than they did against Sweden, but less than they did against Switzerland.
     
  9. 7-0 Canada.

    Any update on the starter?

    I hope I get this game on my television otherwise streaming and posting will be difficult at the same time..

    I predict another strong game by us,I'm hoping that Couturier has a strong offensive and defensive game.

    I use this to get pumped up for our national games:




    I start to get chills and feel so patriotic (lol) after 3:35

    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

    Should be fun as long as Canadians leave out cheap shots this time around.


    Patrice Cormier never forget.

    I miss Cormier and Della Rovere but we'll dominate the Finn's, the only reason it will be fun watching is the battle of Canada's offense vs Finlands goalie.

    5-1 Finland. Armia will show why he's the best 93-born forward.

    I'll be happy if we score a goal and give up less than 10. Seriously, Finland has no chance at even a draw. I just hope Pulkkinen and the rest of the offence gets its game somewhat together already in the first game, defence is questionalble and goaltender sucks. And no cheap shots this time, plz?

    5-2 for Canada is my prediciton, but let's hope Finland has a good game. Is there going to be any streams for this game ?

    Pulu the pigeon is sick. Finland's lineup tonight:

    Iiro Pakarinen - Erik Haula - Mika Partanen
    Sami Vatanen - Jyrki Jokipakka

    Toni Rajala - Joonas Nättinen - Joel Armia
    Rasmus Rissanen - Nico Manelius

    Joonas Donskoi - Henri Tuominen - Julius Junttila
    Tommi Kivistö - Jesse Virtanen

    Teemu Tallberg - Valtteri Virkkunen - Jaakko Turtiainen
    Olli Määttä - Jani Hakanpää

    13th forward: Miikka Salomäki

    Joni Ortio
    (Sami Aittokallio)

    Finland will probably win this one with a wide margin, double digits with ease. :toothless

    Now I have a good reason not to wake up at 2AM and watch the game, great! I was wondering why he wasn't in the team picture... Hope he's ok vs.USA.

    This game is definitely worth watching. Combination of 60 hours of travelling, jetlag, small ice and the toughest possible opponent will tell a lot about the Finnish players. The players who are capable of playing well in this game might actually have a chance of developing into NHL players someday. Hopefully it's not a total uphill battle for Finland.
