It’s more of a fantasy line, but it could actually work. Nättinen and Elo showed fairly good chemistry in Mestis games and Hartikainen would fit their style of play well. The lack of agility could be a small problem, but it would be nice if Jortikka would give this line a chance. If this line would gain a control of the puck along the boards in the offensive zone, it could be really hard to stop them.

Donskoi played in a Kärpät-Hokki friendly match today, so he's match fit. Naturally not 100% yet, but he’s getting there. As a side note Miikka Salomäki also played in this game and performed really well, better than Donskoi actually.

... And I was so certain that Vidgren would make it.
