Yes, according to the Danish foreign ministry, all Danish ice hockey players must play the rest of the season in Finland. This will allow them to participate in the Olympic qualification tournament, which is more important than the NHL will ever bee.

Highlights from the match JYP-Tappara for those who wants to see Eller's debut in SM-liiga.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A9SbXsE1U9k

As danish you really hope for a lasting lockout until after the olympic qualification, especially since our NHL'ers play so well right now in Finland. Denmark has little depth and removing our top6 players will make qualification a lot harder. Denmark-Belarus-Slovenia-Ukraine for one spot in OG is really a group-of-death (it's 6-3-2-2 NHL'ers for the 4 teams, so Denmark has most to lose in case the lockout ends).

Nope, as a Dane you don't just automatically hope for a lasting lockout.

I would rather watch six Danish players on a daily basis in the best league in the world than watch them in a second tier league all season and then for three days in olympic qualification.

Denmark will be able to make the Olympics with or without them and eventhough it would be cool having Denmark in the Olympics, we really don't have a place there. We will lose big time when the big countries roll out the entire arsenal.

And since this is the situation I really love NHL too much to offer up one whole season just for that Olympic qualification.

Belarus team got 3 very good nhl players in Kostitsyn brothers and Grabovsky .. I'm not sure you want those players to play in this little tournament ..

I just realized besides the goals, Eller had 7 shots on goal.

Beast.


JYP is currently playing Joel Armia's Ässät, they are down 1-0 in the 1st.

The infamous Janne Lahti is playing in the KHL this season, it's Miika Lahti.

OK I fully understand your point (I correct it to this Dane )

I would off course prefer see tham in NHL and then having them allowed to play the olympic qualification and then going back to NHL. That is sadly wishful thinking.

Why I deem it so important for Denmark to qualify for Olympics is the TV factor. It will be a lot more prime time than a WC. Also for egoistical purposes I would rather see Denmark being beaten in Olympic Hockey than having to watch 6 hours curling every day on danish television during olympics (because that will be the only other danes participating - thank God for swedish, norwegian and german television). These 6 hours could be transferred to hockey matches, interviews with players and eventually might get more kids to play hockey. An olympic qualification might actually also persued "someone" to build more rinks. If you need to convince the money-men you need an Olympic Qualification!

As with Belarus and Slovenia and their NHL'ers. They will only lose half as many as the Danish squad. Denmark will be hit the worst depthwise. Anyway we know we can be beating badly at WC, so we can only surprise positively and that is always when Danish teams are at their best. But in Olympic Qual we are favourites, so we need all the skill we can get with NHL'ers used to play under pressure.

Odd how no one really talks about Halak anymore. Latly I couldn't even remember who we traded for Eller. I am liking him more and more, the kid is turning into a home grown powerforward with a mean streak. We need him to play with Cole.

edit: Anyone have a recent weighing of Eller? I am curious as to what size he is playing at.

Hes super beast mode from the last time I can remember, not the exact number but it was well above 200 lbs and it showed. Check out the thread where he is posing next to Army, Prust, Moen and Price.

I really like the idea of Eller taking the year or at least the lockout to dominate offensively against men, especially when NHLers are playing in the FEL. Nice to see him get some offensive minutes to fully utilize his toolbox (I understand why he doesn't get top 6 minutes in montreal obviously).
Hopefully he can move into the top 6 next year and force Montreal to make some moves for a top 6 winger.
