It's kinda funny how things changed, I was pretty certain Finland's time in hockey world would come to an end after Selanne, S.Koivu etc retires, but It looks like there will be new generation ready to take the glory. Barkov, Granlund, M.Koivu is pretty solid for center position. Now we just need new Selanne.
I keep thinking Sundin when I look at him. He's got that ability to play both a playmaking or shooting role and that dominant size and puck possession ability.
