Today's hockey is a speed game, especially in NHL. If you're good enough, size doesn't matter that much anymore. Just ask Nathan Gerbe. I'm pretty excited about Ikonen. At this point, I don't think Mikael Granlund's type of draft year is impossible (Full season with men, 30+ points).

I don't agree that Ikonen is the most talented Finn in 2013 Entry Draft. Not when Barkov might have even bigger upside than Mikael Granlund.
