Ive seen a lot of goalies across Europe and the NHL, and i would say Kari is second only to Hasek, i know its early and SM-Liiga isnt as good as the show, but i honestly believe Kari will become the greatest Finnish NM of all time, ahead of Myllys and Tammi!
When Hurme and Nurminen sucked in MM2003, i thought Kari could have done a job in 'that match' vs Sweden.
Kari rules, and hope to see his NHL debut before this season is out...! :yo:

It's looking like Kari's NHL debut will be this Saturday at home against Washington.

Not 100%, but it's solid conjecture. He played Thursday night for the Wolves and I doubt the Thrashers would want to have his debut come one night after playing a game in the A. The Thrashers themselves have back-to-back games starting tonight, so it makes sense to put Pasi in tonight and Kari in tomorrow.
