Up front Teräväinen and Barkov are crucial, hopefully both are available. Most of the top 94- and 95-born forwards are small and lightweight, in the early going this looks problematic. Hopefully some new guys with power game potential emerge, would make for a more balanced roster.
I'd rather not see Vainio in a team Finland jersey again... I'm almost positive he's related to Niiinimaa or Arto Ruotanen in some way.
