One of your prospects that I thought was kind of interesting is Hartikainen. It seems like he has good size on the wing, and puts up points. Is there a problem with his game that he isn't talked about as a good prospect or is it just because he could stay in Europe?
He wasn't able to stick with the big club. We want a guy who is physical and will hit players now and then while having an offensive flair, nothing fancy, just someone who can throw the puck at the net and crash it now and then, Hartski wasn't doing that for us. He was throwing the puck on net but he wasn't checking the opposition enough and playing the 3rd line role. So because of those reasons, he is in Europe. He will come back, but was frustrated that we weren't giving him a 'chance' when we gave him tons of chances.
