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.
I agree seems like TheRocket87 was watching someone else

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.
I really don't see this, but you're entitled to your opinion of course. Also depends on what you expect of him. Right now he looks like a bona fide top 15 pick, there's no overration in that imo. If he were to have Datsyuk dangles ontop of his skill set he would probably be going 1st or 2nd overall.
