    based on limited sample (World Jr.’s and Hawks Prospect Camp)… TT is the best Offensive player in system by far…

    I don’t know how he will hold up on boards or w/ some of the cheap shot guys in the NHL… but this guy has some serious skill!

    What are chances of Hawks bringing him in sooner than later?

    Teravainen will finish his season in Europe this year, wall. It’s possible he gets a call when their season ends (like Kruger did in 2011). There’s no question he’s an elite offensive player who will be A LOT of fun to watch in the not-too-distant future.
