I have no idea why Jalonen did not take Barkov and Nieminen in this team :help:
well this is what you get when your national team head coach gets his money from KHL. Leijonat is only his B-team now he does not watch sm liiga games anymore hi should take hot players in NT but he just looks a scoreboards nowadays.
example: ilari filppula he only has 2 points in his last 6 games and what I read has not played very good overall either.
+ taking guys like kuusela and koskiranta over barkov and nieminen is just sad :shakehead
okay jari kurri said that they want take barkov but Tappara didnt let him go but Kurri didnt tell did they ask nieminen in NT too if not its probably becouse his personality hi does not sound like robot in interviews he actually talks to reporters more than just: we just play our own game let see where it takes us. :)
and usually those flashy personalities do not make in NT when was the last time when that hapenned???
According to Kurri, they had Barkov in sights, but Tappara asked 'em to give him a rest.
A good call, IMO. He's been under heavy load, and there's still games left on spring.
As to Nemo, it's merely a rumor, but I heard somewhere that he's been systematically refusing these calls in the last couple of years.
One name I hate not seeing there is Pulkkinen. He's been in decent form lately, and we really should turn every stone for potential scorers.
I don't understand why Pulkkinen isn't there, either. Why wasn't he picked now when he finally deserves it again?
That being said, the man's NT career is just strange. I mean, he's a two-time olympian and was in the World Cup as well, but has not played in a single WHC.
Nieminen said to YLE that hes always interested for playing in national team but nobody from NT has not take any contact to him.:cry:
So reason must be really bad scouting or they just dont like him.
i hope that it is just bad scouting becouse i really want to see Nieminen and Barkov in WC at Finlands third line.:nod:
Was just coming to post the same.
Such is the nature of rumors. Sometimes they turn out to be true, sometimes not.
I'd definitely be interested to see as well what Nemo could bring to the NT.
To bad, was hoping for Barkov or/and Teräväinen to play in this tournament. I think that would have been a great experience for them to play a couple of games with the NT.
That kind of criticism isn't going to win him any points with Jalonen.
