SM-Liiga Projected Line-ups 2012-2013

Thought this would be of some use for some of the users here, the ones who don't follow the league frequently enough to keep on track. Why not for the more active followers as well. The title might be a bit misleading though as these are for most part just depth charts (I basically just threw the better names to the top lines and grinders to the bottom lines) so the actual lines will probably form out to be a little bit different.

Switch Jani Rita and Steve Moses and put Rita on right wing for Jokerit 3rd line.

You have listed Santeri Arousva for Blues lineup, but not Jesse Jyrkkiö for Tappara. I am 100% sure that Jyrkkiö is much much closer to regular place than Arousva.

My idea was to list seven d-men for each team and to me it seems Arousva is the seventh best d-man in Blues while Halme in Tappara is most likely - atleast at this stage - a higher ranked d-man in Rautakorpi's eyes than Jyrkkiö making Jesse 8th in ranking. Still, you're right, Jyrkkiö will most likely see more ice time than Arousva this season so I might as well through his name into the mix.

So far in the preseason (4 games, seen 3) Halme has been by far the worst D, right now I think the bottom D are Jyrkkiö 6th, Leimu 7th (been very average) and Halme 8th.

Then the forwars:
You had Ahtola twice, probably meant Peltola.

First line has been very good, if nothing major happens seems to be lock for the season.

Other lines, based on the preseason, I see like this:
Ahtola - Makkonen - Kaksonen
Nieminen - Barkov - Peltola
Männikkö - Malinen - Venäläinen
Haapala
Palola
Järvinen

Henrik Haapala (born -94) has been very good, 3 goals. He should get a chance in SM-Liiga. Männikkö and Malinen first ones in danger of dropping out of the lineup.

Both Nieminen and Venäläinen have minor injuries, out for a week or so.

No official word on captaincy, but it looks to be:
C - Mäntylä
A - Nieminen
A - Kankaanperä

Halme will probably spend most of his time in Mestis this year.

Thanks! It's actually good to hear Jesse has climbed up the ranks. That guy stilll has the potential to become a very good offensive d-man for SM-Liiga level if not even higher.

I'll probably add the captaincies later.

You are missing Hakanpää from Blues defensemen. He's injured at the moment, but certainly will be in the lineup when healthy.

I thought he was going to the AHL for this upcoming season as well, but it seems that's not the case.

He made a 1-year deal with KalPa in July. You can see KalPa roster here: http://www.kalpa-hockey.fi/joukkue

Koskinen was recovering from injury and didn't play in first few European Trophy games. Should be with KalPa this season.

Unfortunately yes, and Pakarinen did not play today and Ortio is obviously injured too. As a HIFK fan, this does not certainly look good...

Hit defenseless Peltonen to the back of his head multiple times when Ville was laying on the ice.

My thoughts exactly. I'm expecting Ben-Amor to get crucified in the season opener by Melart/Pakarinen/Liivik, and justifiably so.

I guess there is no way he can get suspended in the sm-liiga, since it's a different competition?

Some thoughts about Saturday's Jokeri-HIFK:

Prologue

- Friday's game: Jarkko Ruutu delivered a suspicious hit on Iiro Pakarinen, who apparently twisted his wrist and got injured. Ruutu got sent away, though I think 2+10 would have been enough. But that's what you get for wearing a Ruutu-jersey.

Episode I
- Saturday: After two minutes of playing, Ilari Melart attacked Ruutu from behind and started hitting him on the back of his head. This went on for a while, even when Ruutu was down on ice. Melart got sent out, Ruutu laughed and kept playing.

- At the end of the 5-minute-PP, Jokerit's 17-yo forward Aleksi Mustonen was ready to make his debut and jumped on to ice. For reasons I dont know, he immediately turned back to the bench, allowing Semir Ben-Amor to get on the ice. Jokerit was starting their last PP-attack from behind their own net, but Ben-Amor rushed straight towards Ville Peltonen, tackled him, Peltonen got up quickly but was instantly hammered down by Ben-Amor. The beating went on for few seconds.

When this happened, IFK's defenseman Mikko Jokela tried to save Peltonen, but he was stopped by Jokerit's forward Jani Rita. They fought for a while, even though Rita never dropped his gloves and tried to wrestle his way out. Both got sent off, so did Ben-Amor. Peltonen was blurry and had to be carried away. He didnt play for the rest of the match.

Episode II

- Still in first period: puck wasnt near, but IFK's young defenseman Juuso Salmi attacked Jokerit's star-center Ilari Filppula from behind and started hitting him on the back of his head, while Filppula was on the ice. Luckily, Jokerit's forward Steve Moses was aware and jumped between them, no-one was injured.

Meanwhile, Jokerit's captain Väänänen was wrestling with some IFK-player and the referees, and suddenly IFK's Siim Liivik dropped his glove and punched Väänänen on the back of his head. Väänänen was more furious than anyone has ever been, but couldnt do anything.

At the same moment, Jokerit's Niemi and IFK's Åsten fought a little.

Penalties:
IFK: Salmi got sent away, Liivik 2+10, Åsten 2 minutes for roughing. Coach Sormunen got sent away.
Jokerit: Väänänen got sent away (not sure why), coach Lämsä got sent away.

Episode III

- Jarkko Ruutu has had it with Siim Liivik. After suckerpunching the captain, in second period Ruutu takes action. Gloves are dropped and Ruutu mold's Liivik's face into a new shape. 100-0 for Ruutu. Both got sent off.

Bonus

- In the third period, IFK's Arttu Luttinen hits Jokerit's Jeremy Dehner in the numbers, rushing him to boards. Dehner wasn't injured, so no major penalties. While goalie Frans Tuohimaa heads to the bench for the extra player, IFK's Joakim Eriksson tackle's Tuohimaa lightly. Jokerit's assistant captain Riku Hahl has a word with the referees about this, but no result. Jokerit wins the game 5-1.

Conclusion

So, what do I think of this. Mostly, I think Jokerit was ready to play ice hockey, IFK wasn't. Melart's action after few minutes says it all. I don't think that attack was justified, because Ruutu's hit causing Pakarinen's injury was mostly bad luck. Melart want's to prove everyone he is a badass, and has been humiliated by Ruutu before.

Semir Ben-Amor. One of my favorite players, he plays hard, he is super-strong and can play ice-hockey. When his teammate is attacked, he always takes action. Always. When he got to ice, he was like a raging bull, locked on to IFK's best player and captain, then blasted full steam ahead without stopping. The punishment was too harsh, but in general, the message was 10/10. IFK's boneheads have been provocating Jokerit for a long time, and they were asking for this! Too bad for IFK, Jokerit has a bit tougher goons than they have.

I had a little orgasm when I saw Ruutu destroying Liivik.

Ben-Amor's attack = wrong
Was IFK asking for it? Yes.

That's about it.

Here's Semir Ben-Amor. I'm glad to have someone like him in my team.

Apparently V.Peltonen was unconscious (laying on the ice) when when Ben-Amor started hammering his neck.

And about that Melart-Ruutu case: Most likely Ruutu has been saying about dropping the gloves, but he didn't drop them.
We've seen that before, that time Melart didn't do anything. This time he did.

Melart was stupid/ did the wrong thing when he stared hitting. Should have just taken the penalty about dropping the gloves, but not hitting.

I don't think so...lots of crowd said no discussion between them two and Melart just attacked Ruutu from behind.

IFK has been calling this for years... now somebody answered the phone hard.

Ben-Amor was kinda expected to give message after the Melart case and the message was unfortunately too hard... it just seemed like Jokerit were tired of IFK's actions (from many years) and wanted to give a hard message back.... no more Erkka on the bench and assistant coach Tomek Valtonen doesn't offer another cheek when hitted.

Question is can they start the season clean? or will this turn out to be Crips vs. Bloods kind of drive-bys...vendetta after another... I hope not.

P.S. Can somebody remember when Toni Mäkiaho attacked Petri Varis and Trevor Doyle attacked 16 y.o. Jani Rita..?? This is not definately the first time when the "goon" attacks skill-players.
