I think the appreciation for Liiga should be higher than it currently is. Especially when people cite things like NHLe to compare leagues with eachother. Just this year Laine, Aho, Auvitu, Nutivaara and possibly Puljujärvi broke into NHL lineups straight from Liiga. Three of those players are special talents, but the cases of Auvitu and Nutivaara are something that shows the top end talent in Liiga can definitely be NHL material. Maybe this year is just an anomaly, but this is a very positive sign for Liiga either way.
