The Forwards are very talented. I wouldn't want Armia personally, but he does have high end skill. Markus Granlund will definitely be a national team player one day, although his NHL prospects rely on gaining physical strength. Barkov obviously will be a potential Top 5 selection next year. Teravainen is an interesting Forward too from what i've heard.

I think the Finns can medal under the right circumstances here. All of the big 4 have their weaknesses and with Junior hockey (and short tournaments) consistency can go amiss. You'll just need consistent Goaltending, the type of D you got today (which was very good, though with such a young unit it may be difficult to maintain) and consistent output from the big Forwards.
