    How much he's benefiting from Troy Terry?

    I would guess they both benefit.
    But watching Borgstroms highlights he seems to create a lot himself.

    I think he could be invited the Olympic camp. Finns are kinda short after Kontiola and Kemppainen.

    I feel like Borgstrom isn't getting enough hype. His numbers are impressive.

    I also think he is underrated as a prospect.. it's not just his numbers that r impressive.. his offensive skill set and toolbox are elite.. needs a bit of work on picking up his pace away from puck and in defensive zone and needs to engage himself more in those areas but he knows what to do and where to go and when he does engage he is very effective... sky high potential and very high floor as well imo

    I would love to see him in the pacific division as a linemate of Troy after ANA traded Vats to Florida ;-)

    I don't think this would be a concern. Maybe if he were a big forward who just kinda stood in front of the net and tipped pucks in or sat on a certain spot and sniped pucks but Borgstrom is like a human highlight reell.

    His coach said that he is essentially 6'3 tall Gaudreau.

    I would like to see him take the next step either at the end of his current season with Denver, or next year.

    Why is that? He has one of the best set of hands I've seen, is elusive and agile and he relies on those skills to play the game. Sounds a bit like Gaudreau. Borgström is also 6'3, so I fail to see the silliness. He is strictly a finesse player despite his size.

    I find the 6'3 Gaudreau to be a fine stylistic comparison. Borgström is perhaps a more of a goal scorer and he likely won't be a Gaudreau level star in the NHL, but nobody has claimed that. I believe the coach was a giving a stylistic comparison.

    Very late bloomer physically, he has had to catch up with his body.

    Damn, it might be exciting year next season for the Finnish hockey fans. Borgström, Heiskanen, Heponiemi, Tolvanen... Sounds like a good rookie class.
