Reportedly Niinimäki was disappointing in preseason and lucky to even get the third-line spot he now has. The first line Viitakoski (ex-CGY) - Helminen (ex-NYR) - Dahlman (ex-OTW) has been great and the second line center Marek Vorel is solid as well, so it won't be easy to get promoted.
Yeah, Mckeens said the same thing. Good to have some confirmation of that from another source.
Please keep us updated.
