So it seems that the three danish NHL'ers will debut for Lukko tonight. So it will be interesting to see if it will make any difference. What do you finnish fans think?
Defence and goal keeping certainly hasnt been Lukko's strong side (according to the stats) so far. One of Frans Nielsen's really strong points are his PK and defensive responsibility, while Philip Larsen is a smart but not so physical defender he is a great prospect on PP for Dallas. Mikkel Bødker is a fast scater and seem on the verge to get his scoring really going. But will they be put on the same line, or spread out over the team?
Simon Nielsen's save percentage (though only 2 matches) looks pretty bad compared to last season, so will he play with his brother tonight or will he be benched?
EDIT: Both Frans Nielsen and Mikkel Bødker will certainly boost any shootouts. Last season Frans Nielsen scored on 7 out of 11 and Mikkel Bødker on 4 out of 9 so they are both regulars on their NHL teams.
