Now that the C-junior regular season is over, would anyone care to compare Saarela and Nattinen's seasons to some other great underage seasons? According to Eliteprospects, in terms of points per game they have produced the best underage c-juniors season in 5 years, when Mikael Granlund and Teemu Pulkkinen dominated the league. Of course, there's a pretty big gap: Pulkkinen had 3.91 points per game and Granlund 2.82, while Saarela has 2.57 and Nattinen 2.33. On the other hand, I'd be curious to know if Finnish junior-watchers think that the quality of the league is better or worse now than it was when Granlund and Pulkkinen played as 14-15 year olds.
