2008 Draft

Does anyone have any info on these prospects from Finland:

Joonas Rask
Jori Lehtera
Tommi Sallinen

Lehtera has good stats, and is playing in the top league in Finland, but hes older (1987), why was he passed up in previous drafts? Is Rask the consensus top Finland prospect for this years draft? thanks

I think with Lehterä, the thing with him has always been his skating/speed. I hope he does get drafted, though.

hmm, its interesting because he has been fairly consistent in the SM-Liiga, and put up good points in playoffs as well...i hope the Flames draft him with one of there 2 4th rounders. any info on Rask, or Sallinen.

Sallinen: good defensive forward, good skater, good leader (captain of Finnish U18 team last year) I think he is better physically than most players of his age too. Played quite a lot in the finals. He still needs to improve his scoring ability.
