I think that NA hockey will suit Armia well especially in a game with lots of counter attacks. Not sure how Buffalo plays though. But definetly seen this season how puck controll game destroys Armia's unpredictability.
Armia is at his best when he gets the puck to full speed before opposite blue line, haven't seen much of that this season since Ässät plays all attacks very slowly from the defence. I see very bright future for him in NHL if he can adjust to the game and culture.
About yesterdays Tappara-game. Armia wasn't good but not bad either. Brodin is not an ideal linemate and Uusikartano's game is very defensive compared to Dixon's. Of course Tappara defended mid ice very well and made it hard for Ässät to build. Team definetly needs 1 winger.
