Hi, wow i was surprised to see laakso on the line-up, i've totally forgaten that guy, does anyone know if there is any chance that he makes the team. I just checked that he has put on some weight and he is a solid 2-way D that has a hard shot. Any info on how he has been doing in the camp?
Actually, Laakso has lost some weight. He was something like 93 kg a few seasons ago and now he's below 90 (87 I believe). Someone can convert those to lbs if they will.
It's weird because he never seemed like the kind of guy that had something to lose in that department. In fact I'm pretty sure that when he was playing in Finland for HIFK he had one of the lowest fat percentages on the team... yes, even below the goalies... He's one of those gym training nuts...
EDIT: Who's Crispy? And who did Laakso actually pair with today? It looks like he got a ton of PK TOI, which to me is always the biggest sign of trust.
