It might work for other teams, but I'm happy Malmö hasn't been doing the same. They have tried that route many times before and it's simple not for them.
Only 2 players was added. Brian Ihnacak joined during the Olympics from the Italian league and seems to have a nose for the net at this level too (3+2 in 6 games).
Former Malmö player Marcus Olsson was added at the deadline. Most of the team already know him, so he should fit in well with the group. If there are too many injuries on defense, Tobias Ericsson will play D, so I guess Olsson will add some depth at the center position if that happens.
Sallinen and Viitaluoma sure has been a dangerous offensively for Örebro, but can they continue playing like this in Kvalserien? There are more mentally challenging moments in Kvalserien than in the regular season!
