I'd say it's doubtful, as they are the only big (or even 6'+) top-6 caliber players on the team. Perhaps a possibility on PP, though.


Could be interesting to see Teräväinen, Salomäki and Armia together, in which case top-9 would slot into something like:

Lehkonen-Barkov-Haapala
Teräväinen-Salomäki-Armia
Granlund-Aaltonen-Ikonen.

However, that would only make the third line even smaller and less talented, which I'm not happy with. Of course then again, if Granlund proves to be solid centerman at this level, or Teräväinen can play center as well as wing, you could move Salomäki to 3rd line C, which would at least bring some grit there.
