    Ristolainen - available for The Bahamas and it's golf court. Had to say it :).

    Too bad Mikael Granlund turned from likely to unlikely candidate with that Minny & Nashville trade.

    He also has a newborn. Doubt he'd join, even if he had played in Minnesota.

    Juolevi's season was reported to be over so he won't be there even if both Canucks and Comets miss the playoffs.

    Oh actually I didn't know. I doubt that we ever see him in WHC.

    Rantanen won't be available for men's worlds this spring due to contract negotiations.
    Also hard to see Luukkonen making world championships team straight from OHL and especially without any EHT games.

    Barkov says he is interested to play in the WC, not a surprise but nice to hear.

    It will be ridiculous when Team Finland once again overlooks Metsola. Guy's .963 and 1.25 GAA so far in the KHL playoffs.

    Of course Luukkonen and Vehviläinen are hot and trendy names, especially on this board, but seriously.

    He's done nothing for the national team. It doesn't matter what the players stats are in league play, no matter the position, if it doesn't translate to international play.

    I'm fully expecting Kakko to play with Barkov. Lets go. Laine-Barkov repeat from few years back.

    Yeah, he gets one game a season.

    But hey, he let in a couple of soft goals seven years ago, so there's that.

    Juha Metsola at eliteprospects.com

    Try two seasons ago. He played three games then and 5 the previous season. Far from stellar stats.

    Teräväinen-Barkov-Kakko to first line. Hintz and Borgström to second.

    Actually yes, Kotkaniemi also should most likely to be free. So Borgström-Kotkaniemi-Hintz to 2nd line.

    Why would we take Tolvanen if he hasn't been that impressive this season?

    While I see Kakko making the roster, and I also see him being a lineup regular, I don't really see him getting a spot on the top line right next to Barkov unless we're really hurting for quality wingers. For example, if both Carolina and Dallas bow out after the first round, TT-Barkov-Hintz seems like a reasonable top line. It'd be somewhat similarly roled as the TT-Aho-Claywoman line from last year.
