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.
Excuse me? Teräväinen is 2nd most creative prospect from finland after Mikael Granlund and he's not far from that level. Teräväinen has one of the best vision and creativity of this draft. His best assets is his vision and hockeyIQ. He's not flashy but he's able to do unexpected plays with his creativity and vision. Very unpredictable with the puck. If i compare his vision to Armia's vision Teräväinen wins it CLEARLY despite Armia has decent vision.
I doubt alot that you have seen him much.
