Janne Lahti to Flyers? (from Jokerit, FEL)

Hellou !

Just wanna make a thread what you guys would think about signing Janne Lahti to Flyers. Currently he is playing at Jokerit Helsinki.

He has been more or less injured on last two seasons and this is he's first season for a while when he has been able to practise full summer before season starts.

And man, he is having beast season atm in Finnish Elite League. He was FEL's best goal scorer in this season (59gp; 37g + 22a = 59p) and now on playoffs (4gp; 3g + 5a = 8p).

He is quite strong (6'2" 196lbs) with the puck and typically he's goals are made in front of the net. Good wrist shot (389 shots, shooting percentage 9.5%). Also he have been played all season with two prospects, Kerälä and Pulkkinen (Detroit's prospect).

Flyers have some salarycup issues next season and we do not have picks so maybe he would fit in? Would be great third liner (and maybe more?). There is rumours that he has received lot of offers from KHL and 1 one-way contract from NHL. I guess he will be 500-800k@1 year player in NHL. Low risk - high reward I say.

nice-to-know: years ago he was Leino's linemate and in FEL their play clicked well.

Pity that there is not much video material of him on Youtube.
