Just my two cents.
It's a realistic notion, a lot of Finnish posters say that he is being coddled too much and plays best when he's challenged by the coach, Ruff will give him plenty of that.

As for the type of player that doesn't make you a championship team, he plays best in big games, people will say he had a disappointing WJC which I agree with because I expected him to completely dominate, but he showed up in the elimination game and it seems to be a recurring theme for Armia to score big goals for his team.
