Recchi to join Saku in case of no NHL season

Thought you might be interested.

"He is not optimistic, though, that the NHL lockout will end in time to save any part of the 2004-05 season and allow him to don a Penguins sweater for the first time in 12 years.

Because of that, he has signed a conditional contract with Turku of Finland's elite SM-liiga, one which stipulates that he would join the team immediately after the NHL season is canceled. The deal was arranged with the help of Montreal captain Saku Koivu, a Finn and a good friend from their days together with the Canadiens.

"I've played overseas before in representing Canada, so I know the game over there," Recchi said. "But all I'm thinking about right now is that I hope it doesn't get to that.""

I remember Saku saying if he could have any two wingers he's played with in the past, he'd go with Zednik and Recchi. Looks like he meant it.

Saku would take Zednik over Jere Lehtinen?

edit: and then there's that fellow named Selšnne or something...

Recchi, the only winger that helped Saku reach over a PPG, before being subjected to an introduction of injuries
