I'm sure that Rinne will still be the best Finnish goalie in 4 years time. Just because someone is younger doesn't mean that they'll automatically reach/pass the players older than them. It's almost dillusional to believe that 21 year old Barkov, 21 year old Ristolainen, 22 year old Maata and 24 year old Armia will be the best Finnish players in their respective positions. Maybe 6-8 years time, but the only players who could realistically be seen as the best in their position in Finland are Granlund, Vatanen and possibly Rask if Rinne declines.

Not saying you're definitely going to be wrong, but it's highly unlikely that a group of 21 and 22 year olds will be the top players in Finland.
