Granlund and Teräväinen are capable of dishing the puck better than Salomäki, but that’s just one area of the game. Salomäki has been playing as a 2nd line C lately and I’m sure he could fill that role at the WJC’s as well, if required. Interesting to see what Rindell decides, he has a good amount of alternatives if all are healthy.

Some possible roles for forwards;

Barkov (1st/2nd line C)
Armia (1st/2nd line RW)
Teräväinen (1st/2nd line LW or C)
Lehkonen (1st/2nd line RW seems likeliest)
Granlund (1st/2nd/3rd line LW or C)
Haapala (1st/2nd/3rd line LW seems likeliest, depends on whether he's lined-up with Barkov or not)
Salomäki (2nd/3rd line C or W)
Aaltonen (2nd/3rd line C or W)
J.Ikonen (2nd/3rd line RW)
Järveläinen (2nd/3rd line LW or RW)
Nykopp (3rd line W, 4th line C or W)
Leino (3rd line C, 4th line C or W)
Lamberg (4th line RW)
Salminen (4th line C or W)
Hännikäinen (4th line W)
+ possible surprises
