I am almost sure there will be a surprise in these qualies, I hope it won't come from Opava Slovakia seems like a decent WCH candidate based on what I see in the Finland vs. Ukraine match. Sivula has been playing awfully lately, can't understand the decision to use him as a starter in the NT as well, Finland will have trouble against Slovakia.
I have to disagree with YavorD on Sivula. He's clear starting opp since Mikko Oivanen couldn't get out of China. And he played well today. Though I have to agree that SVK is tough opponent on Sunday.
Here are Finnish stats from FIN-UKR game:
Urpo Sivula 23/+10 (att 20/43, 2 blks)
Antti Siltala 10/+4 (att 7/22, receive 44%, 2 torj, 1 ässä)
Olli Kunnari 13/+3 (att 11/25, receive 69%, 2 blks)
Matti Oivanen 9/+4 (att 6/9, 2 blks, 1 ace)
Jukka Lehtonen 13/+11 (att 9/14, 4 blks)
Mikko Esko 4/+4 (att 3/4, 1 blk)
Lauri Kerminen (lib.) (receiving positives 61%)
