I see him becoming a new Antti Pihlstöm and Finland is producing too much of those brainless speed skaters already. I'm really concerned when I see the junior national team selections for Finland as most of the forwards are really small and their only weapon is skating (of course there are exceptions like Salminen and Teräväinen). Why not take the bigger guy that has the creativity and vision and try to work on their skating like they do in the big hockey countries.
