As for Ristolainen, he would propably have to be the first D to play in the Olympics that young. While he is the best D prospect along with Vatanen for Finland, Ristolainen won't make it in all likelyhood.
I agree with you but i would like the idea him at Sochi olympics in his 2nd home country. If he rapidly developes so why not? Barkov can be slotted in top 6 in offensive role or bottom 6 for defensive role. All depends how he developes.
