I've just watched 8 periods of such hockey, it rarely works at this level, especially if one of the top lines has an off night.



Teräväinen is promising kid, but I have doubts of him being physically ready for the WJC's. He looks slim as a cord and the tournament is played in North America. Would be good if that Mr.Someone would have some muscle.
Yeah, Salomäki and Barkov both have big bodies, they could make room to Teräväinen. Teräväinen and Barkov have played very well together. Is there anyone in the pipeline who is bigger with good offensive skills?
