I still remember that season... I was a young man when Teemu came to Winnipeg.

I remember meeting him before his first game. He was with a woman that was acclimating him to Winnipeg and he needed a cordless phone. I just remember how shy he was and quiet. I remember wondering if he would ever turn into something.

(This story actually reminds me of when Zhamnanov came in the store to look at something and ran out... weirdest Jet I ever met. But I still have his McDonalds' Russian Hockey stick! Anyone remember that?)

I was at that Teemu game last year and yelled until I my throat was raw. He is a rare real deal. There is no posturing or B.S..... There are fans with current Jets 2.0 jerseys on at the arena with his name and number.
