Dammit Teemu. I have been watching the last regular season home game two years in a row so that I could say "I was at Teemu's last (RS) game at Honda Center." He's denied me twice. It's unlikely I'll be in town next season.

But kidding aside, I'm glad he's back.

Congrats again guys.

That place is going to be electric (at least I hope it will be), goose bumps for sure.

Seeing this on the TV in the mechanic's lobby made my bill sting a little less. Can't wait to get another opportunity to see the Finnish Flash

Great news for everyone, especially the team!

The youngings can be brought along slowly and into the 2nd line for later years.

Thank you, Teemu.

A little off tangent, but do you think the KHL crash may have helped make Teemu's decision to play a game that those players now don't have a chance to play? Considering that one of those players, Rusty, was a team mate. Could be his tribute to play for those guys as well.

Or I may be reaching. Just a thought.

I am a lot happier about going on the European trip, now. Teemu in Helsinki is worth much of the cost.

So you're the one sending me all those chocolates and roses?!?!?



The team is now complete.


Time to once again let the old man loose on the League's goalies.

Does that mean Teemu is healthy and ready to go opening night?

It will be. Probably the second biggest game here this season, second only to the regular season home opener. Jets fans have a standing ovation or two waiting for him. Teemu was always a class act when he was here. I remember seeing him a few times around the city, and he was very courteous to everyone that approached him. I don't think he ever turned down anyone for an autograph. It's going to be great seeing him on the ice, even if it's on the opposing team. Even though I'm a Jets fan, I'd love to see Teemu pot a few goals while he's here.

I think that is just your emotions speaking now. I think all the friends of those players will have their own way of appreciating and honoring them. But this is, i think, just Teemu having "one more" year left in him.

I keep thinking of the scene in the Hangover when they're gonna get "Doug" and they keep saying "WE'RE GONNA GET DOUG BACK".... except I picture it as RPG in the car and they're saying "WE'RE GETTING TEEMU BACK!!!!!"

Bobby Ryan is of course the one singing in the back "And we're the 3 best friends that anyone can have, the 3 best friends that anyone can have...."
