Rasmus Ristolainen WILL NOT be an #Amerk this upcoming season. Says he has contract with his Finnish League team. It's #Sabres or Finland.

With regard to Rasmus Ristolainen, the NHL or Finland is his interpretation of his contract status. Waiting to learn #Sabres viewpoint.

Random thoughts:

- He can develop in Finland like Armia did.

- What do they make in that league? Is it more than the 70k salary and 92.5K signing bonus if he plays in the AHL?

-Wait until the KHL has teams across Europe. NHL teams will have to consider the "Russian factor" for ALL European players.

Salaries aren't really published, but numbers that are usually thrown out there are in the $100-200,000 range.
The way it usually works, AFAIK, is the NHL team pays the minor league salary and signing bonus, then the European club covers the remaining difference on what they committed to paying the player.

Also, this shouldn't really be news since it's just the way things work.

Yeah, I agree, lots of players stay over (ie Armia, Selanne). But then Hampus Lindholm (Swe) came over last year to play in the AHL.

So Rochester still needs one more veteran Dman then.

From the looks of everything, the Lindholm situation was a fluke due to the lockout.
Anaheim signed him with the intention of having him try for a spot at camp, then stashed him in the AHL while they waited for the lockout to end, rather than sending him back to Rögle where they would not have been able to recall him.

Idk, I'd wait to hear the clarification from our staff first; ie. is it their preference he play in the AHL over SM-liiga and just need to dictate that to him, etc.

Hoppe has the quote:
Quote:
Amateur scouting director Kevin Devine said last week Ristolainen had no European commitments and could play in the AHL with Rochester next season.

Ristolainen wasn’t sure, though.

“I think no,” he said about playing with the Americans. “I got a contract to my hometown team.”

Stay tuned for more information on that.
The contract extension there isn't news.

Let him stay home for a year or two.

I know the Sabres probably would like him closer (a la Girgensons) playing in Rochester for development but he will develop in Finland too.

At least let him stay this year, him leaving would make a difficult gap in our defense to fill.

Won't Rasmus have to do the military service thing like Armia did?

He has a longer time to fulfill it because he plays hockey. He can complete it over his summers.

He spent long stretches of last season as a healthy scratch. Why is it unreasonable to believe he could be assigned to Rochester?

Because it's not going to happen. If anyone gets waived to Rochester, it'll be McBain.

I could see Sulzer or Tallinder losing out to McNabb in camp and being waived. Tallinder at his contract hit is much more likely to pass through.

Back to the issue of the Sabres chief of scouting not knowing Ristolainen's contract status for next year... Color me disturbed.

Admittedly I have no idea how thier mandatory military service works, but doesn't Armia play hockey too?

why do you say that? he said "Rasmus has no obligation to finland next season"...

which means he isn't obligated to play there, which is in fact correct.

EDIT; just saw that tweet, hmm

Because of salary talinder would clear waivers to Rochester McBain wont.

If Buffalo buys him out of the contract then Buffalo can send him down to Rochester.

They didn't bring in a $3.775m player to play in Rochester. If anyone goes to Rochester, it's going to be Sulzer. But given the lack of depth at forward, I wouldn't be surprised if they carry one spare forward, and two spare defensemen.

Re: Ristolainen in Rochester/Finland, I wouldn't be surprised if the organization's position is that the Sabres can buy him out of his Finnish contract, and, at that point, can do whatever they want with him. Whether that's a good practice or not is another question, but Pegula may be applying the "If I pay you off, why do you care?" card. Quintessentially American that T-Pegs.
