    Europe is officially the worst country on Earth
    According to Jatkoaika this is estimated line-up for Finland:

    Jere Lehtinen - Saku Koivu - Teemu Selänne
    Ville Peltonen - Olli Jokinen - Tuomo Ruutu
    Niklas Hagman - Niko Kapanen - Jukka Hentunen
    Mikko Eloranta - Mikko Koivu - Jarkko Ruutu

    Kimmo Timonen - Teppo Numminen
    Janne Niinimaa - Sami Salo
    Aki-Petteri Berg - Toni Lydman

    Miikka Kiprusoff (Kari Lehtonen)

    This will mean that Riku Hahl, Ville Nieminen, Antti Laaksonen, Ossi Väänänen ja Joni Pitkänen are healthy-scratches.

    Mikko Koivu played well against Germany, but there are still many people who question his right to be in this tournament and in line-up. I`m one those people.

    No Nieminen !! Crap.

    At least I'll be able to cheer for Lydman & Kipper.

    2-1 Finland.

    Looks good but the fourth line should be imo
    Ville Nieminen - Riku Hahl - Jarkko Ruutu

    I'd dress Ossi Väänänen over Aki Berg any day.

    Agreed on Berg, he's horribly slow. I'd start Vaananen or Pitkanen over him.

    I'd also throw Nieminen in there for Hentunen or Eloranta.
     
  11. Thats a prediction right??
     
  12. Do you guys know any link where I can listen to the game? thanks

    Yes. The game doesn't start for another 6 hrs.

    Not sure about Radio but the game is on CBC.
     
  14. Well the problem is that im not in canada right now so I cant watch the game on tv.
    I was wondering if anyone knew a website where you can listen to the game.

    This game airs on ESPN, not ESPN2. You're in luck!

    Unfortunately the USA vs. Canada game is on ESPN2 (tomorrow).
