Admiral William "Bull" Halsey...
There are no great men, only great challenges that ordinary men are forced by circumstances to meet.

I dont really see that it would have done much else-except prolong the war by perhaps-a few weeks-if even that.

Moscow's Red Orchestra had begun to suggest that the OKH was planning Barborassa shortly before the campaign's off-set, although Stalin ignored these because he assumed that the Germans would "prematurely".
A better question could be, given a better showing in Finland by the Red Army, would Hitler's generals have persuaded him to delay Barborossa?
And what if Germany entered wartime production in 1938? Berlin's output equated to more in 1943, under constant bombardment, than in 1939. This suggests, with emphasis on standardized models, that Hitler's quartermasters could have supplied the Rumanians, Hungarians, Slovaks, Lithuanians, Finns, Bulgarians, and Italians with sufficient artillery, armor, and motorized vehicles to form a more powerful fist against the Russians; especially once attrition began to wear down Germany's attached forces.
Meanwhile, I believe Hitler began Barbarossa too late, if anything, because the Soviets were already moving towards their Western frontier, away from the coming German menace.

I doubt Hitler would have changed his plans any had the Russiand done a better job in Finland.
If Hitler been able to supply his allies with the same weaponry as his men had,, this leaves the war up in the air as to who would have won.
I would go into more details but im being booted off the librarys computer due to time to close, I will be back.
