Yeah, when he first came over we heard a lot about how Pitkanen wasn't actually a weirdo, he was just Finnish. I think as his career progressed here that proved to be false, as some pretty easy going guys that have already been mentioned here had very hard times getting along with him.

Unfortunately, it seems the infamous video of him sitting on the bench looking all around to make sure no one was watching, then picking his nose and eating his treasure has been deleted off YouTube. I think that sums up my feelings on him. The guy could've won multiple Norrises with his talent, but he turned out to be the most disappointing player I've seen on the Flyers, right there with Pavel Brendl.
