Yup, average and not explosive. It was more notable at the WJC (even Jääkiekkolehti noted it in the latest issue) where the play is more North-South and not as organized as Finland's top guys were used to in their club teams. It's no secret that Meidän Peli has had a slowing down effect on the tempo of SM-Liiga games and that has helped Barkov because it hides his skating fairly well.
