I disagree. I don't think we have seen the last of Teemu Laakso at this level. The coaching staff really like him and I think now that he knows what he needs to do, he can go back to Milwaukee, spend the rest of this season fine-tuning his game, and come back next year and challenge for a roster spot. He can probably get one, depending on what goes on in the off-season. If Hamhuis goes un-replaced, he'll probably be penciled in to start the year.

I just hope he doesn't sulk in the minors, play like crap for a year, and then bolt for Europe next summer. He has the potential to play at this level, he's just raw.
