Well the story "Mikko on tyytyväinen" seems legit.

So they are only going to have news/videos related to Finnish players on the site? That's pretty good marketing aimed at non-hardcore Finnish hockey fans, but for us it's quite useless and clearly a downgraded version from nhl.com.

Do they have like some finnish guy interviewing finnish players or is everything just translated? Cause if they do I might check it out for random interviews every now and then, but classic nhl.com seems better to me

You can't watch even online. NHL got ass****ed by Medge Consulting.

"Saku Koivu kertoo pelasi veljensä Saku tänään vs. Wild."

Say what?

They've apparently been doing some interviews in "Finnish".

I just watched the video where the Ducks players tried to pronounce Finnish sentences. Apparently they used Google Translate to get some of the sentences. "Ojentaa minulle kiekko" is what Google Translate gives for "Pass me the puck". D'oh. I did wonder why the attempts were so different from Selänne's "hei, syötä se kiekko mulle" (or whatever it was) example, but then one of the players managed to pronounce the word "ojentaa"...

I also hope the NHL is not paying anyone for those "Saku Koivu kertoo pelasi veljensä Saku tänään vs. Wild" type quick so called translations because if they are, they're being scammed by someone who doesn't have any knowledge of the Finnish language. Now that I mentioned it, I do hope they're being scammed because it's comical if the NHL is so cheap they just throw the English into Google Translate themselves and think it's going to result in something even remotely correct in a language with a very different structure from English.

The articles seem to be correct though, so they must have paid someone for those. They don't update the site much now -- which probably explains the Google Translate "Fingrish" in the titles -- but you'd expect them to have plans for the future. Otherwise it doesn't make much sense to set it up in the first place. They'd have to hire at least one person if they wanted to expand the site to include translations of feature articles from the main site, which would certainly make it look more professional.

Exactly.

NHL needs to stop wasting money on something what isn't needed. And by money, I mean the time some lone employer spends with google translator.
