Sami pulls out of WC...

Looks like Kapanen's out of the World Cup of Hockey this fall.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but Gags and KJ are the only Flyers left now?

Kapanen pulls out of the World Cup of Hockey (TSN.ca)

Forward Niklas Hagman of the Florida Panthers will replace Sami Kapanen, who feels is unable to play on top level at this stage after the tough NHL season with the Philadelphia Flyers.

Amonte = Team USA
Pitkanen = Team Finland (I believe)
Esche = Team USA
Seidenberg = Germany (I believe)
Handzus = Slovakia (I believe)

That's all that I remember right now

Pulling out might be a good idea so he can rest up more if he plans on returning to the Flyers next season(whenever it may be).

Radivojevic and Somik are also on the Slovak team as well, and I beleive Ragnarsson is on the Swedish team but I doubt he will stick around.

Finnish tabloid Ilta-Sanomat is speculating if Kapanen will retire, or if he will be playing the remainder of his career in Finnish KalPa (top team of tier 2 level), which he owns with O. Jokinen, K. Timonen and P. Kuivalainen.

I have understood that his family is aware that living in Philadelphia is a lot more dangerous than in his hometown Kuopio and they don't want to come back to USA.

Who knows what will happen, I bet not even Sami will know yet...
