Everything come's to skating ability and strong lower body in NHL. Without these abilities you have to be special player to be successful in NHL, and finns have been drawing blanks on these for many years now.

To see more finnish NHL players we need to develope our prospects strenght on legs.

There are also few factors like pass receiving, shot among other things that needs to get better in a wider range.

Barkov is strong enough to play in the boards, and im sure he'll get faster in a few years. In my opinion he also has very underrated shot.

This is entirely my opinion, but im sure Barkov will be successful in NHL.
