Far from awesome, especially in that form, since Pihlström isn't a centre. Komarov could adopt that slot, but even he is more familiar with winger duties in NT.
I think Komarov is a lock, whether as a centre or a winger, but unlike you figure, we do have quite some candidates for 4th actually. Joensuu is definitely making a case for himself, and if we're to presume Komarov is slotted for a winger rather than centre, I'd put Jesse ahead of Pihlström ATM. Then there's Hartikainen and I guess Petrell too from NHL side. And if the top-line picks have surprises in them, even someone like Bergenheim or Korpikoski could slink down to 4th.
So... no. Pillu is a solid candidate, but he still needs to beat a handful of players to make it. Not an insurmountable task for him, but not a cakewalk either.
