SM-liiga 2012-13 Season Preview


 

The 2011-12 SM-Liiga season was one of opportunity for several young players – as the continued exodus of top flight veterans from the Finnish national league to the KHL or North America allowed some of the top Finnish juniors to make an impact with their respective clubs.



Once again this season, the majority of the players in Finland's SM-Liiga will be career minor league imports or older, second-tier native Finnish players.

Good preview from what I read, but I would like to correct that Kristian Kudroc was the only key defenceman Ässät lost from last season. Last season Juho Mielonen only managed to get 11 games on his belt before he was let go by Ässät during the season.

Jokerit: undrafted american NCAA player Steve Moses starts his first full year as a pro and has been showing strong speedy play in preseason. Looks to be like a top-6 forward.

Steve is creative, dangerous, fast plus quite ok balance for his size. Comparing him to Tim Stapleton when he came to Jokerit: Steve is looking more "ready" right away when it took time with Stapleton... I have huge expectations for Steve when the season continues. Top line player, no doubt.

So far 3 GP , 2 G, 1 A

Selänne still haven't made up his mind about lockout... but today Jokerit 1st line is:

Ilari Filppula - Valtteri Filppula - Steve Moses
