WJC is skating competition, so no-dominating-Barkov shouldn't be surprise or disappointment. Finland played too slowly all in all, and it achieved big problems against typical hard forechecking junior teams. They played "natural" hockey only at times, I don't know why. Maybe Rindell knows?
Rindell is a fine coach. It's so lame to always blame the coach when the team fails.

How much do you know of Rindell's latest work? It hasn't been exactly stellar. Even good coaches fail at times, but he's failed a lot lately. You can call it a coincidence if you want to, but most people here won't. The team in the WJC was undisciplined and since we're dealing with teenagers, who else is to blame except the coaching team?

Really?

Changing lines for every game is being a good coach?

One of the coaches most important jobs is to make sure the team is ready when the game starts. Team Finland wasnt ready for a single game...

No one in the Finnish hockey media defended the coaching staff in anyway and Rindell publicly took the blame for the poor performance of the team.

Tappara-HIFK, Barkov extends his point streak to 7 games early into the first period with an assist on Nieminen's goal.

Mikael Granlund at FEL as 18-19 year old 39GP 8G+28A=36pts.
With better linemates. Was considered as top 3 prospect in hockey at the time.

Aleksander Barkov at 17 year old at FEL 39GP 17G+19A=36Pts
Against NHL-lockout players.

We all know how high-end offensive talent Mikael Granlund is.

Barkov with way better 2way game can match him being 1 and half year younger. Barkov will be very good once his legs gets stronger. I don't know many 17 year old who is 6'3 210-220 lbs with excellent skating. It's IMO matter of time once his skating gets great to very good.

Barkov finishes the game with 1 assist +/- +2 and 16.23 time on the ice

He was also 2nd star of the game.

He was born in Finland. It's impossible to fake the day of birth.

You may be able to fake your DOB in Russia, but Barkov was born in Tampere. Nice try there, though.

Reports are saying that Barkov is actually Grigorenko.

No. Also Barkov and Batman has never been seen together, so there's a possibility that Barkov is Batman?

The plot thickens, his draft stock is falling fast

I'm pretty sure Barkov wasn't boring in 1993.

And I thought "The Dark Knight RISES" meant the exact opposite.
