And scoring in Elitserien usually translates into KHL pretty well. Only D who failed to repeat his Elitserien numbers in the KHL was Puistola. Others - Kronwall, Niskala, Hietanen, Maenpaa, Jaakola - were as successful. Obviously he's not going to be a PPG player but 30 points - no problem. I think he was the best D on the market without a shadow of doubt so it was a great job by Magnitka to get him.



How many hockey transfers of this kind - where 18 year old supertalent is being transfered from one team which just made it to the Cup finals to the other - do you know about?
pardon my langauge? how did the guy look last year? lol He looked good on a very weak team. NIskala? not good. Of these Kronwall is the only guy who's able to do this for two years straight being a top level player.
