No, he's fine staying here. All the travelling he's done over the past summer (4 trips to the US) and the training missed due to that is showing. He'll be better next season after a "normal" off-season(which means he's not ready to come to NA a year from). He and Pulkkinen just have not clicked at any stage and in yesterday's game he center Jarkko Ruutu and Jani Rita. Pulkkinen's new line scored two goals and he opened his scoring for the season with an assist.
