BTW you can compare Färjestad to perhaps Montreal or Detroit.

a classic team with a lot of winning history in their franchise, and always good players that will always be in the hunt for the title. I think that's the main reason he said yes to them..
I don't blame him at all and look forward to watching him play full-time for The Blues down the road sometime. The SEL is a better league than The AHL, but at least Junland got two season's worth of experience and knowledge of how tough it is to play in North America. Players here are ready to take your head off if you're not careful. He's starting to understand the tenacity and energy it takes to play in North America. I think he learned a lot about what it means to be a "professional".

Junland can develop as much as he needs to..."Whatever it Takes!"
