So they are giving Marjamäki the "Jalonen treatment" with only exception that they didn't come public this time with the fact that after one year Marjamäki takes over
because of the bad reception it got last time
. After this decision Westerlund was the only Finnish "high-caliber" coach who was ready to agree for a 1-year gig job.
Bad reception last time perhaps had more to do with Shedden. Also, contrary to "last time", seems like Westerlund has a real option to do a 2nd year, maybe depending on how ready Marjamäki feels like.
