Jokerit seems on the other hand to suffer a bit from the "Karlsson left syndrome".
Any oppinions about Lukko's chances for getting a playoff?
With this pace its expectable. The defence system works extremely well, letting others keep control of the puck and scoring from counterattacks and PP. Despite the two TPS games Vehanen has been extremely solid, he and hard working team has managed to keep goals scored against them in 1 or 2. And they have done this without 3 of their top wingers - 2 of them are expected to return soonish. Also Azevedo and Nurmi are currently in flames. But somewhere during the time the danish trio was here (or left) the group of players has evolved into The Team and plays like it. Not the pretties hockey, but definitely effective.
