It looks like in 2012, a Finnish player making over 70,000 euro pays 29.75% in national income tax plus another 16.25% - 21.75% in municipal tax. So a player is probably losing about 50% of their income.

Since the AHL and NHL affiliate are in Texas, he'd only lose 28% to 33% (Wikipedia) depending on how creative they get with gross income (most people in his tax break only pay around 20%) as well as how many if any NHL games he gets in (up too a max of 35% if he plays several NHL games).

It doesn't really matter, but I was just curious if a guy jumping from Finland to the AHL was taking a major cut in pay.

Emil Molin dressed today for Brynäs, 3-0 away victory over Färjestad. Played only about 5mins but got an important assist for the game winning goal.

Nice ... hopefully that will earn him even a slightly bigger role ... which had previously been no role ... lol.

Ilves avoids relegation, winning 4-0. Jokipakka with an assist on the PP again, played over 21mins.

Klingberg's team beats Nemeth's team 8-2. Klingberg with 3 assists.
Molin's team made it to the Finals. He only played just over 3mins.


Klingberg was attacked by the opponent's goalie (#70, black jersey, 4th goal)

Nemeth played just over 18 minutes (3rd on his team), but he somehow managed to only be on the ice for 1 of the 8 goals. It was a PP goal in the middle of the 3rd that made it 7-2.

Klingberg almost seems like an agitating defenseman.

Hopefully he'll unite with Nemeth down the road here in Dallas. I even think they could make a great pair eventually.

Getting him out of Finland is looking like the right move. I don't think he was wrong to give it a try in the first place as Frolunda is notorious for not giving young players much responsibility, but it just didn't work out.

Absolutely. I see Klingberg as a long-term project, which is quite rational, giving the fact that defensemen need some time to mature. Even if it didn't work out, I'm sure it was a great experience for him, being away from his native country for the first time, by himself. Learn to cope with setbacks. There's lots of potential. He made tons of defensive errors, but still Jokerit wanted to keep him for another year. It was his decision to go back. So there's still a lot of hope that Klingberg can form a great defense with Nemeth & Oleksiak in Dallas one day. Jokipakka's high-end potential isn't as great as with the other three prospects, but you also need those kinds of players in a team.

AIK forces a Game 7 with a 2-1 win.

Nemeth and Klingberg get at least one more playoff game, and the winner goes on to play Emil Molin's team in the finals.

I'm pretty sure that article covered everything. However the condensed version is two of their top players (including the captain/leading scorer) were dismissed from the team after being charged with sexual assault. A third top player on the team left the school in December to join the QMJHL.

They're about to present the Hobey Baker award. For those of you who don't know, Austin Smith is a nominee and has a great chance at winning.

I can't even tell Connolly and Smith apart. They all look so bored.

Thanks, that's what I was thinking.

I've always identified him by his mo-hawk (or whatever you call it nowadays).

Strange how they kind of played up Smith not being a big guy in that video yet he's bigger than the other 2 finalists.

Has Spencer Abbott smiled once...?

And am I the only one who thinks Smith looks like Morrow from the side?
