I never said that those were EHT games.

Fun fact: Juhamatti Aaltonen and Teemu Pulkkinen scored the same amount of goals with the national team last season (2). Pulkkinen had only one point less than Aaltonen, although he played 11 games less and didn't get to play on man advantage at all.

I agree. And you can't understate Euro Hockey Tour's role in player development. Vatanen and Granlund have been able to develop their game based on EHT experiences, and now you can see the results. Time to put more of our young guns through the pipeline.
