Looking at how he's played, I don't think he's gonna get the contract. With Kolanos Blues has now 5 foreign players and because you're only allowed to dress 4, someone has to go. And it's probably Malone if not Donald MacLean. Both of them have been huge disappointment but Malone also has been acting like a little brat taking some stupid penalties.

Krys isn't much better. Maybe a change of scenery will do him good.
Ever since his concussion 2 years ago, he has never been the same on the ice.

Malone seems to be the odd man out. I don't speak Finnish, however, so I can only guess what the following article means. Could anyone, who speaks Finnish, sum up what it means?

Malone USA:han kuntouttamaan lievää nivusvammaansa

Kuukauden mittaisella koesopimuksella Bluesissa ollut Pittsburgh Penguinsin hyökkääjä Ryan Malone ei toistaiseksi pelaa lievän nivusvamman takia. Malone pelasi viimeisen ottelunsa eilen keskiviikkona JYP:iä vastaan, jossa hän saalisti yhden syöttöpisteen. Malone ehti pelata kaikkiaan yhdeksän ottelua viimeistellen tehot 2+1=3.

Ryan Malone osallistuu USA:n joukkueen mukana marraskuussa pelattavaan Deutschland Cupiin ja on halukas palaamaan turnauksen jälkeen takaisin Espooseen. "Hän halusi hoitaa vammansa kuntoon kotonaan ennen Deutschland Cupia. Malone ei myöskään ollut täysin tyytyväinen omaan peliinsä ja kuukauden koesopimuksen puitteissa hänellä oli mahdollisuus lähteä," toimitusjohtaja Christian Ruuttu sanoo.

Bluesilla on Malonen lähdön jälkeen neljä ulkomaalaispelaajaa.

I'm especially interested in the part about the Deutschland Cup. It'd be great if someone could translate it!

Malone to USA to heal injury

Malone who was with blues on a one month contract has left for the US to heal an injury. He played his last game yesterday against JYP, where he got an assists. Malone played 9 games for Espoo 2+1=3.

Ryan Malone will participate for team USA in the Deutschland Cup played in November,and he wants to return to Espoo after the tournament. "He wants to heal his injure at home before the Deutchland Cup. He is also not completely satisfied with his own game, and since we had only a one month deal he had this chance to go," GM Christian Ruuttu said.

after Malone's departure, blues have 4 foreigners.

Considering how horrible Kolanos looks at wing... (at least in the NHL) this could be good news for Tukonen.

Not really, though he is listed 4th line today. Malone's departure could give him better opportunities later on.

Judging by Tukonen's PP goal in text-tv stats, it opened up pp time for him?

Every goal for him at this point is manna from heaven as it'll serve to improve his confidence and turn him into what he can become..

Kolanos has played great in the first 2 games, much better than expected.

Kolanos 2+1 so far tonight after 2 periods against Lukko.

You can't really say that Kolanos has sucked big in the NHL because he's hardly played. He was injured for a year and a half and was recovering all last season in the AHL, while also developing.

So far he has 3 goals and 3 assists in 3 games, so you can't say that he's been disappointing so far.

Kolanos has now 3 goals and 6 assists in 5 games, and he just signed a contract during the lockout with Espoo Blues

Nope. He has 5+7=12, +6 and 24 penalty minutes. Nice game for today though. 2+1 and three stars.

on a line with Kolanos and Maclean... :) But I'm sure everybody got your point anyway.

In the game against Ilves Kolanos appeared a little lazy but somehow scored those goals, very effortless skater with deceptive speed, good scoring touch.
