Last 2 olympics played with the best players Finland placed 3rd and both times we were playing with a washed up team, literally same players that were good in 2006. Now we have had a lot of young talent up and coming and Finland has been among the most successful countries in U20 tournaments in last decade (along with Canada and US). That has also shown in NHL. If you look at the NHL statistics there are many Finns on the top of the list (scoring and points). Maybe not this year specifically but the past few years.
