Tvrdon won't have played competitive hockey for almost a year so it's quite possible he starts off in the ECHL. Same here, could he be returned to the CHL as an overager? This one would make a little sense as opposed to Frk considering he just lost a year.
Marchenko, sounds like the decision will be up to him and he's positive to join the Griffins. I hope he does.
Backman will play another year in Sweden.
I don't think Pulkkinen is ready for top line minutes immediately. He hasn't been with big minutes in Finland. ~14 minutes the last 2 seasons. I think he will need one season at 2nd line role, build some conditioning and then promoted to 1st line if everything goes well.
