You don't have to be a sick dangler like Armia to be considered a top prospect.

The amount he's improved throughout this season is incredible. His progress has been astonishing.
I have actually seen him many times every season since he played in jr C including this season. I agree that he is a smart player with good instincts and efficient stickhandling. I don't think he's vision is as good as some people are saying here. Also he lacks that certain flair and creativity that make some players special. He's going to be a good player no doubt, but I think the hype is going a bit overboard as usual with Finnish prospects.
