... I still wouldn’t have given him four years due to our financial constraints, but Calgary’s roster isn’t riddled with bad contracts so they could afford to go four years.

It is now. In 2 years, they will be wondering why they have those extra years on those guys.
Calgary is starting to look old and slow on their back end. I saw they are talking trade with the beaners to send Hanafin and Bennett for Carlo and DeBrusk. Hanafin is their only skating dman left after Brodie split so lets hope that happens from a canucks perspective.

Well the Flames had fuck all in goal now or in the future so I can see why they blew their brains out on Markstrom. Years 5 and 6 could be ugly. Goalies are voodoo, you never know. Tanev should easily live up to his contract for the first three years. It’s all about health with him though. Two bad contracts if you think they’re bad isn’t being riddled with bad contracts. Five or six garbage contracts is what I was talking about.

He was but hasnt played a game in well over a year.

I listen to 960 the fan often and there are serious concerns with what kind of game he will be bringing when returning. The injury was apparently career threatening and he may not be the same

He’s the top scoring D man in Finland this year, over a point per game.

Even in a different league an improvement like this is notable; https://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/pdi ... pid=187366

Thanks for keeping us updated on the development of Valamaki on whether he’s an NHL player or not. Book isn’t written yet but the concerns are growing.

I just came from the Liiga Scoring Leaders Board. A whole bunch of nobodies. In fact out of the top 50 names Valimaki was one of the only 2 or 3 that were recognizable. Stop referencing Beer Leagues. What’s next? Who’s racking up points in Kazakhstan’s Hockey League?

Didn’t see him. Daniel Audette and Nick Merkely are not too far behind Valimaki in points.

You wont see him on the stat board as he has no goals and no assists through 12 games

Toni Utunen plays in that league as well with one assist through 10 games. Hes now listed at 5'11" and 169lbs though....so theres that

It’s a good league. Beer league my ass, it’s right between the two Swedish leagues for quality, probably closer to the SHL.

He’s only 11 pounds lighter than Dobson. But when you factor in that he’s 5” shorter, those are pretty solid dimensions
