To the point of "how strong the Finnish league is", I think you can perhaps take some direction from what has been the experience over the past few years. There are certainly some (particularly goaltenders) who have risen in the NHL, but I think perhaps the Slovaks and Czechs have been making greater impressions of late.

That's not to say there aren't some like Pitkainen...

As to Korpikoski, almost all the scouting reports that I've read about him have mentioned his lack of finishing...if he figures out a way to score then that will go a long way to fulfilling his projected 2nd line expectations and at 18 he has plenty of time.
