Finland 2010 Olympic Roster

By Matt Paul; Dec 30, 03:06 PM

Latvia 2010 Olympic Roster

By Matt Paul; Dec 29, 11:28 PM

Not much to talk about with Team Latvia aside from the fact that 15 of the 23 players are from Dinamo Riga. Oh, and apparently there is a team in Germany called “Grizzly Adams Wolfsburg.” That alone makes this roster worth looking at.
