Also Teemu Pulkkinen was one of the last to be cut from the final squad, and right now, Salomäki is as dominant player as Pulkkinen. And this comes from Jokerit fan.
Unfortunately for our young guys, this years WHC is held in Finland. So obviously there will be many big-name players available. But i'd rather see a guy like Salomäki in the lineup than a guy like Jarkko Ruutu.
