Yeah, I'd like to think that scouts don't look at other individual players solely based on their nationality. I guess you might have an argument about success in FEL translating into success in NHL, but again, would be ridiculous to base anything on just one player's performances.
I'm personally more curious about Barkov's chances breaking into Finland's WHC roster next spring, as NHL players should be completely out of question. Are underage players even allowed to play in men's World Championships?
