We have more NHL players in years or maybe the most ever so far? Haven't check'd that but i bet it's close at least. Not only that but we have a lot of both young players breaking into the league and veteran players in their prime. Our national team has done well, bronze in the last Olympics, Gold at u20 & Silver in Skoda Cup. Jokerit, the first Finnish KHL team is also doing well, they have winning streaks after winning streaks in the 2nd. best league in the world. Finnish Liiga teams are also making a name for themselves in the CHL... Thought i wouldn't call CHL a proper "champions" league, at least not yet. Was 2014 the beginning of the Golden Age of Finnish Hockey? Will it last and how long & how far will we get? I think it is, and i think it we'll get more success than ever in the upcoming 5-10 years. For the first time in history we might actually become favorites to win the big tournaments. Talking about 2014 it might be one of the best sports years in our nations history, not just hockey. Including the success in hockey, for the 1st time in both Basketball & Volleyball Finland's national team played in the World Championships of both of the respective sports. 2014 might rank as one of the best sport years for Finland just behind the years when we used to get loads of Olympic gold medals back in the day. Discuss.
