It's a traditional Lenten meal amongst the Finnish population in Minnesota. I would assume the word comes from the time of heavier immigration to the state (late 1800s, early 1900s).
Cool. Kalamojakka. You learn something new every day

And yeah, old Finnish then indeed. I've always been fascinated by Finnish emigration to US and elsewhere. Are there any Finnish language newspapers published in Minnesota these days? Or any other such institutions? Mods can feel free to move this to some other thread as we're getting quite far from the topic of Granlund (unless he particularly enjoys fish stew/soup...)

I heard Granlund invented the "kalamojakka" while solving a paradox.

I'm not that happy with some posters just coming here to hype around MG and not really giving **** about the team otherwise. Fairweather FBJ fans, lots and lots more of them next year.

I hope you aren't pointing me here, but don't worry when the weather turns bad they'll leave at last when they find out how boring we.

EDIT: Oh you meant FBJ fans who don't care about the team. At the moment who wouldn't like him? The kid is a star in SM-Liiga and in Finland. Heck he is probably going to be best finnish forward next season. And most of the Finns spamming in here do not even write on the board that much, which means they are purely MG fans. I don't see them doing any harm.

Oh man, I'm truly sorry I'm a Canes-fan but also a MG-fan, he'll take a Teemu's place in my heart when The Finnish Flash finally retires.

The only question is, will MG retire sooner? The way things are going, I just don't see Teemu retiring in foreseeable future. I mean, he is basically a cyborg after all those knee operations...

This thread is about hyping MG though, no? I don't see anything bad about people posting news and stuff about him. Indirectly they all have something to do with the Wild.

Teemu vs. Lidstrom. Finland vs. Sweden. Which country can produce the better ironman? It's always a competition between these two.

I personally have nothing against people dropping by here just hyping giving updates of Granlund, but there is a MG hypetrain thread on the general prospect forum area too.

Granlund is now 16+22 in 30 games, those stats start to look like a goal scorers stats more than playmakers.

He sure is a very interesting player...

Granlund also assisted the 3-0 empty netter (secondary assist) but for some reason didn't get a point.
At least it looked like that.

Edit. Video of Granlund's wristers: (Not sure if viewable outside of Finland, but give it a try)

After the game the head coach Seppo Hiitelä of today's opponent Ilves had this to say:

"-On Tuesday I will call our centers to me. I will not say anything about the goals but I will talk to them how much work Granlund does without the puck. I will show a slow motion replay to them about what you really are supposed to do on the ice, Hiitelä said.

-Granlund scored two really beautiful goals today but his true value is also in many other parts than goalscoring. I admire his attitude to play without the puck and how he works for his team. That is the greatest thing in him, and that is what makes him a world class player, a ****ing good player."

Not only does Granlund play well, but he spreads his gospel around the league.

So, FBJ single-handedly killed my team with his fluttering shots. What's even worse, I actually cheered when he scored. I can't wait for him to come to Wild and get the hell out of HIFK.

Gotta admire the kid. Just before he scored the first goal I was thinking that Mikke hasn't been very good tonight and then, once again, the guy steps up and wins the game for his team. He also assisted the empty net goal, or at least it would have been an assist in the NHL.

One thing I don't understand is that opposition never seem to try to heckle Granlund. He's their best player. Why aren't you hitting him, annoying him, rubbing glove in his face etc.?! It's almost like they gave up before the game even started. "You can't beat FBJ so why even try?"

Mojakka. That's my new favorite word! So much better than "keitto", which is kinda formal and ugly word, or "soppa", which is Swedish. Mojakka. Sounds very Finnish...

There's an interesting article with a theory about the origins of the word:
http://willielahti.blogspot.com/2008...orld-finn.html

Quote:
One such adjective from the Central Ostrobothnian dialect that has fallen into disuse in modern times is the adjective mojakka, which had the same meaning as tukeva (sturdy, solid, hearty, substantial). The Finland that the emigrants left behind was not the land of plenty that their future homeland would prove to be. Meals were often sparse, and meat was eaten rarely. Soup was generally thin and watery. Muhennos or stew was a culinary concept virtually unheard of in working class households. It is quite possible that when the emigrants arrived in North America and encountered the more substantial stews available in the lumber camps and boarding houses, they described said stews as mojakka keitto (hearty soup) or perhaps as mojakampi keitto (heartier, more substantial soup).
So the article suggests that the adjective mojakka eventually turned in to a noun meaning soup/stew among emigrants. You can find some uses of the word in Finland (for example from the Ulkokalla Lighthouse Island's restaurant menu you can find "Majakkamestarin mojakka" (Lighthouse Master's mojakka)) but, according to the article, "it is actually highly probable that in the above instances, the term came to Finland with those migrants who decided to return to the homeland".

Sorry about the off-topic but I'm pretty sure MG likes good soup. I'll leave now to prepare some hearty mojakka.

Great find! This explanation is elegant and makes sense. Mojakka. Yes. Now carry on, I got a craving for fish stew too...

Wow, those were sick wristers. Maybe FBJ is just pissed at Zaborsky leading the goal scoring race by so much.
