He's leeching off Ellison. Ellison is a real spark plug and will surprise people.

Interesting to see Jonas Nordquist on that list. He is having his best season in Sweden so far this year and often plays on the topline in Luleå with Jonas Rönnqvist and Thomas Holmström. Lately he has more been used at center.

He started out the season on fire an averaged a point per game. His production have dropped somewhat, but the team as a whole has slipped in the standings after a great start. Nordquist is an excellent passer and has a quick release. He has improved his skating, but will never be a fast player. If he had had more speed I wouldn't hesitate to see a future NHLer in him. However, I think Chicago will sign this kid when/if NHL starts up again.

I watched the kid in every prospect camp he participated in here in chicago and was always impressed with his hockey sense. Just seemed to make things happen.

Buffs size and weight can be compared to those of Georges Laraque of EDM and Chris Dingman of TB.So I would say at 6'2" and 250LBS the guy must be built like a brick **** house dont need to see why he has to lose weight, if so maybe drop to 240. Lindros 6'4" 245lbs its only 2" not 7 or 8" so whats the big deal.

Georges Laraque Left Wing
Born Dec 7 1976 -- Montreal, PQ
Height 6.03 -- Weight 240 -- Shoots R

Chris Dingman Left Wing
Born Jul 6 1976 -- Edmonton, ALTA
Height 6.04 -- Weight 235 -- Shoots L

That was being compared to Chara not Lindros.

So there's two players 6"3, 240 and 6"4, 235.

Buff has a long way to go at 6"2, 245-250.

He still has a shot like everyone else but he's far from a sure thing.

Nordquist have been moved to second line center with Carolina player Justin Williams and swedish agitator Per Ledin. The line have been Luleås best for a couple of games now, and Nordquist scored two goals in one game last week. He has a very good shoot and sniper intincts which he showed. He also played both on the PP and the PK.

I haven't seen him play. I know that he was playing well early w/Nemo... but it looks as if he has dropped off a little bit as the season has progressed.

Definately looks to be a solid pick though.

Pete is also in the army at the moment, that is surely slowing him down (has kept him out of few games too). Nemo raised him "the best young center in Sm-league" during the fall, and yes Kontiola has tools for playmaking.

Taze-

Why wouldn't Ruutu return home and fulfill his military obligation during the lockout? There was a lot of hub-bub about a year and half ago about him not being able to come over because of it.

From an outsider's point of view, you guys have a 'problem' that a lot of teams would probably like to have: how/when to bring your young D along: Babchuk, Seabrook, Barker ... So how do you?

That I don't know. Maybe because of his shoulder? He wasn't healthy enough to go into army? Just a speculation...

All I know is that, if he can avoid getting into the service until he's 30 (or 28?) he doesn't have to go into army after that.

This, unfortunately is the hawks we are talking about.... so very poorly.

On the serious side of things, Mgmt loves Trent Yawney and feel that he is a real good coach for young dmen. I don't necessarily share that belief (how do you turn Steve McCarthy into a guy with absolutely no offensive output?), but that's what the hawks believe.

Next season in norfolk, you are probably looking at a d corps like this:

Barinka/Keith
Seabrook/Kuiper
Byfuglien/Wisniewski

And that's with Babchuk, Vandermeer (24), McCarthy, and possibly Barker in the NHL next season....

Uuuhhhmmm, no. Then he'll go to prison the next time he'll step on Finland's soil, if he's not liberated from duty (which hardly ever happens) and doesn't agree to come to fullfill his duties in the army. Of course, he can always apply for american citizenship.

Since when do people go to jail for living abroad age 18 to 28?

They don't. They just go their, if they don't complete their military service before that.

You might want to ask Shefki Kuqi for further details.
