And they said they are still looking for #1 center and a defender. If they don't lose Barkov to NHL and Mäntylä or someone else to the KHL, gonna be one scary looking roster for next season. Number one candidate for championship, I doubt anyone can get a better roster.

Agreed, they're looking very strong on paper. But if they end up losing Barkov and Mäntylä, it'll be difficult to find replacements, especially for Barkov. I've read rumors that he's leaving for NA, but we'll probably have to wait a couple of months to know for sure.

Jokerit can get good roster too if they find replacement for Kilpeläinen.

Decent looking pick-ups

Still need a quality goaltender incase Raanta does go over to NA.

Ässät:

Tuomas Huhtanen, Forward (one year contract including a try-out) - Will be an ok addition for the fourth line/depth
Valtteri Parikka, Defenceman (one year contract) - Will likely spend his time in the U20-Ässät, but Ässät are hoping for big things for the future
Kamil Kreps, Forward (one year contract?) - Right now slotted to be the second line center, but has the tools to take the first line job.

Edit. Oh, and they also made a contract with some foreigner defenceman, but name will be announced early July.

Edit2. Now a couple of talented wingers and vóila, you got yourself a nice looking team.

Damn, Lukko is going to be stacked going to the 2013-2014 season.

Nummelin and Mikkola on the same team, brings some insane experience.

Lukko 2013-14 going to be one of the most experienced teams ever played in sm-liiga + lots of leadership.

Jeff Foss-> Kalpa
Thomas Narmo -> Pelicans

Anyone got some info on Christopher Gibson? LA Kings will not offer him a contract and i think he is a free agent now? I'd think there would be some interest in sm-liiga.

Does LA lose his rights, and does this mean he re-enters the draft?

Since Gibson was born before 1st of January 1993 (12-12-92) he won't re-enter the draft, LA loses his rights and he becomes an UFA.

So Gibson's development stayed still in Chicoutimi... I guess it would be good for him to come back home now to some team with good goalie development: TPS, HPK and Ässät already stacked?

Gibson's an interesting name. He could be salvageable with good coaching. I hope someone makes him an offer. I don't think HPK has room for him (they've got Tuohimaa and Saros), don't know about TPS and Ässät.

I'm going to take a wild guess that some Mestis team signs him.

Also confirmation that Brian Willsie will play in TPS next season. Not too bad. Add a #1 center and a top-6 winger and our roster might be competitive. With no injuries that is.
