I think Barkov will drop in the end, just like Teravainen.... You have to consider the Finnish-factor. Then again he has Russian blood flowing through him, no wonder he has at least some talent.
You seem to be happy, no, even delighted about the fact there are so few finns in NHL, and things generally going worse for finns, and yet, you are a finn too? Do you wish ill for all future finn hockey players?
