A hot goalie in Saros and some good forwards if all the top guys are available. Otherwise the team doesn't seem too promising, one or two good D's would make that team clearly more competitive.
Marttila didn't mention Saarela as a candidate prior the most recent U18 tournament and he hasn't tested/added hardly any new players during the season. Remains to be seen if that has changed now.
Kasperi Kapanen hasn't provided much scoring for the U18 team, would be interesting to see what his role is if Barkov, Lehkonen, Ikonen, Mustonen, Tanus and Saarela are all in the line-up.
