5.  Mikael Granlund

At one time he was the best player not playing in the NHL and a top prospect for the Minnesota Wild.  He was in the middle of a decent season, but not standout, before he went to Sochi.  All he did there was lead the undermanned Finnish team in scoring with 7 points in 6 games and get named to the media all-star team.
