Kossila and Aaltonen have both played in national teams. When Granlund played in jr A. He was sometimes centering the third line and he maybe had to do more for his points than Ikonen. That been said I think too that Ikonen is the most talented kid since Granlund. Only flaw is his size... If I remember correctly he was listed 169 cm last season and now 170cm... I really hope that he hasn't stopped growing...
in 08-09 when Granlund played in the World Juniors the team was alot worse than what we are able to put together this year, and he was taken mainly because there was not enough players with SM-liiga experience. I doubt that Ikonen will make the team with only Jr. A experience, even though it seems that he is really dominating there right now.
