And the magic of course was in the world champs of 02, where he was named best forward, ahead such guys as Palffy and so on. As the text in my previous post points out, it was about the national team ^^
I agree, he is good enough! When he was with Florida, he was our best player to fight for the puck along the boards and forecheck. I wish he was still in Florida. Although he wasn't a big scorer when he was with us he hit about 20 posts each season he was here. He adjusted his game after being traded to Dallas because he is scoring more now(Had a Hat trick this week and is up to 25 goals so far).

And Hagman's first season I heard some announcer say that he broke the NHL rookie record for number of posts hit?

Might have been a touch of sarcasm there He has been known for his hands of concrete since the rookie days. Nowadays, he's about the best (not with the other foot into retirement) sniper that Finns have.

I hope he'll get more icetime with Richards, as those guys seemed to complement each other (at least in that hattrick game).

Hitting the posts that often would rather suggest bad luck ^^
