On a somewhat related note, I hear Todd Warriner will play in Finland this year, for Jokerit.

Isn't his name Swedish?

Wish he could have finished his career in the NHL. Podien is one of the NHL's good guys. I wish him the best.

This is actually insane that a player of his calibre plays in the swedish 2nd-league, but we don´t complain. He had offers from SEL-teams but he wants to spend more time with his family since there is less travelling in Sweden... :)

Apparently Shjon and his wife have roots in Sweden being from Minnesota.
