Also, the organization would like to bring over two dmen from Finland. Adding a native Fin who has been in the US will help with the transition.

Finally, I think many organizations will do right by their players. Ford spent a lot of time w/ the Admirals, and since there was no chance he would make the Blues, St. Louis may have returned him to his home team. Something about having roots in a city.
Just out of curiousity, who??
And if that's is the case, they better hope Lajunen actually stays. I wouldn't be too surprised if he goes back across the pond.
