It seems like there's a massive break in the Finnish schedule for some reason over the next little while so we may not have an answer until then.
How massive? Like a week or ten days?
If so, it's customary for European leagues to break during major tournaments - usually Euro-centric tournaments - to allow players to leave without missing 10% of their season schedule (don't want to lose 5 games of a 50-game schedule, ya know?).
Upcoming now, I believe, is the Karjala Tournament - a four-nation tournament.
Gaglardi was just on the ticket. He said that he hasn't been very close to the negotiations. Talked about a bunch of dumb Norm hockey points. Best part of the segment was the minute he spent confirming new jerseys.
Bit off topic but Friedman seemed very sure of himself when naming hard liners, and he's a guy I have a hard time doubting. That being said Gaglardi doing some minor PR on local radio seems to be a calculated appearance to remind everyone the Stars still exist, maybe in preparation for the start of the season.
Philip Larsen currently has 4G 4A in 14 games and a +8 statistics.
He leads Lukko in playing time basically every match. Has an average of almost 26 min.
The three danes have +8 (Larsen), +8 (Bødker), +7 (Nielsen) statistics whereas only three other players on the team are in plus (+4, +2, +1), with 18 players in minus (3 on -7 as the worst).
So he is getting lots of responsibility and also PP time.
The break in SM-liiga was because of the NT matches (Czech, Finland, Russia, Sweden - ranking order of that tournament).
