Please stop. You're only making yourself look like an idiot and embarrassing Sami and his family while at it. Geez.

It is still weird for europeans that the players can sign a contract for play in a league better than the one at home and with better play.. And then end up playing in a league that at best is on par but with worse travel and way worse pay.

Playing in the NHL is never a guarantee. Vatanen needs to show that his addition will make the Ducks better, and that he deserves a spot ahead of a current rostered player. He just hasn't done that yet. Anaheim thinks highly of him, though. They'll give him a shot when they feel he is ready, or an injury gives him an opportunity.

Too bad. Hopefully he gets a shot this season so that he doesn't have to come home and dominate europe.

I'm sure he will get a chance sometime this year. But he was never going to start the year with the Ducks.

Don't be too hard for a guy which either has no clue or is a troll.

I must admit, it hurts to see him playing in AHL instead of NHL (he's not ready, I know) or in our team in FEL where he was the MVP every evening. It's clear now when the team is struggling, especially on PP.

He'll become a Duck some day. I know he'll make it happen.

We have no problem with someone being a huge fan of a player but that guys has been major trolling, so it is kinda funny.

I am not trolling. There is a huge gap in attitude towards playing in the AHL between europeans and north americans. I both think and hope that not too many proven europeans are happy with playing in the basement which has been a graveyard for so many careers of really good european skaters. VERY few european skaters who have played a full season or more in the AHL make the NHL. And in many cases it is not because they're not good enough.

Playing in a worse league with way worse pay than back home could and probably should be demoralising for a player of Vatanen's ability.

If Vatanen is a decent pro, he'll realise he has to do his stint in the AHL before getting into the NHL.
