I am sure that he has all the tools for a breakthrough and he would not have signed anything else than a one-way deal, because the salary in Swiss league would have been 5-10 times bigger than in AHL. There were other teams after him and at least STLīs Finnish scouts like him a lot.

I promise to listen the whole production of Milli Vanilli in one day, if Koistinen is a disappointment considering his salary.
