Not sure if this has been posted but, Petrus Palmu is going back to Finlandia.

Came up just a bit short of success in his first year of the NA pro game.
Try to focus on 1 year from now...

Is it kind of similar to Dahlen's situation last season? The priority is to get Palmu more icetime. Going back to Finland might be better option than sending him to Kalamazoo Wings.

Exactly like that. He couldn’t crack the line up and when he did play he couldn’t stay in the line up. Both his agent and the Canucks feel it is in his best interest to play everyday and meaningless minutes. He is saying all the right things and saying he’ll be back for camp next year.

Also similar reasoning when they contemplated sending Gadovich back to junior.
The only HW the Canucks need

Bizarre with what’s going on with Gadjovich.

Probably something to do with his skating. That and his game was predicated on throwing kids around with his man-child build - something he can’t pull off against other men. He will take time to marinate, put I still hold out some faith he’ll turn out.
Love the Sport. Love the Team.

Hate the League.

Power forwards usually take a long time to develop. Gadjovich needs to spend this coming summer to improve his skating.

So.... I'm guessing he tried Absolut, but didn't like it? :|

Hah! I was across the water from you just outside Tallin in September where they had a vodka tasting contest at 10:30 AM and I was conscripted to do my duty. I'm not a vodka connoisseur but Absolut was the Absolut worst. Maybe they don't have any Finlandia in Utica. If so, the Canucks need to move their farm team to a more liquor friendly place. Anywhere in Eastern Europe will do.

Oh, and later on we did stop in Stockholm for 6 hours.

Tyler Madden makes the USA final roster. Where are all you Jack “shite” Wise heartbroken hiding now? In the HF ProTank thread?

For some wonderful humour read the first few pages of the HF Tyler Madden thread where the usual suspect Benning Bashers are crying over picking Madden. Pure Gold

We play the teams teams hard... just ask them!

I think we are about half as good as we are going to be in 3 years or so. Plan the parade because it will happen
