Pesonen - Immonen - Granlund is such a staple line at this point that it's a good point to fall back to if nothing else works. Still, I'd like to see if that line could be made even more dangerous by replacing Pesonen with some other player. EHT is all about experimenting and finding good combos to me, good results are nice but secondary in the big picture. So I'd still love to see 'em together maybe just for a game or two. Rest assured, I'm definitely not a huge fan of "staple 'em together at WHC and pray it works" type of deals.

Though I have to agree, that Joensuu - Kapanen - Pulkkinen -line sounds pretty dynamite too. Definitely more promising than any of those they built around Kapanen last year.
