you not think he will need the same work Ekholm needs as far as playing on the smaller rink?
i had laakso over ekholm for next season. i always thought laakso really wanted to make it in the NHL. ekholm will have to get acclimated real quick and jump over a couple of guys.. this jarvinen guy sounds like a 3rd pairing guy so that may take another slot. but honestly I dont know squat about this guy
I'm pretty sure Ekholm has already decided to play in NA next year. It's possible he makes the team as a 7th D. I guess it depends on moves Poile makes (or doesn't make), and how he and Blum look in camp.
