Players who have played in the NHL this season who have played in Ässät also:
Tom Wandell (LW/C) - If comfortable playing wing, but I'd imagine he would pick Sweden though.
Jason Williams & BJ Crombeen (W/C) - Would probably stay in the AHL, but there could be a chance.
Jussi Rynnäs (G) - We already have Järvenpää and Raanta for next season.
Crombeen would be awesome, but with Assat's new signings (Ryan and Brodin) probably not likely? I think the most interesting pick out of these guys is Jason Williams. I've followed him somewhat closely throughout the years (due to his playing for Assat and Blackhawks) and watched lots of interviews, and you can really tell that he thinks that he is 1st line NHL material but has never had a fair shot. At this point in his career he is a fringe NHL guy who is there to provide scoring for an AHL team and also to be a reliable call-up when injuries hit. He has history with Assat, and when compared with spending a year in Wilkes-Barre, PA versus traveling to Europe and playing for a GOOD Assat team this time, you could really make a case for him returning to the Spades. I'm sure that Assat fans loved him when he played for them in 04, and I think he is exactly the kind of guy who loves to have the glory of the spotlight and the assurance that he is a team's top player. This is all theoretical though, who knows what will happen.
