Been a little while since the last Olympic roster, so we'll resume the parlor game today with the Finns:

Saku Koivu
Mikko Koivu
Antti Miettinen
Tuomo Ruutu
Valtteri Filppula
Teemu Selanne
Jussi Jokinen
Olli Jokinen
Niklas Hagman
Ville Peltonen
Petteri Nokelainen
Jere Lehtinen
Kimmo Timmonen
Joni Pitkanen
Toni Lydman
Teppo Numminen
Ossi Vaananen
Sami Salo
Niklas Backstrom
Miikka Kiprusoff

* This roster is based only on current NHL players.

* The team's strength is clearly between the pipes. Either goalie could carry the team.

* Nokelainen might be a stretch, but we'll throw him in for some additional Boston flavor.
