You wasn't talking to me, but i still answer. I have seen two game's by JMA, on the other game he was absolutly stud, two goal's and dangling all over the o-zone, but on the other game against the same team, when they putt little pressure on him, he just dissapeared, turning pucks over and making mistakes and that is his problem.
When he can play against those weak opponents he is doing just great but when those big countrys are starting to defence and holding the puck, he is useless.

I admit I haven't seen him play a single game in NHL or KHL this season.

When JMA is on his game he's awesome, nobody can deny that. Skating around his opponents, dangling, drawing penalties, all that sweet stuff. But if he doesn't get enough pucks or those veteran Dmen can apply pressure and nastiness on him within the rules of the game, he completely disapreas. He has no hockey IQ and he's not gonna win many puck battles against NA players.

And the only Liiga Dmen he's gonna see in the Olympics are on his own team.

The risk of playing JMA isn't that big when you can expect him to be able to have fun out there. That means the first two games. After those games he should be removed from the lineup permanently. Same goes for Lehterä.

Salo injured, limping his leg. PERKELE

Ristolainen to the rescue? Luckily Nummelin is also injured so they can't pick him.

Well I hope that it's not serious but knowing Salo's injury history his season is over.

Think it wasnt that bad. If he had been carried out, he would miss Sotsi. He has like 5 weeks to get in form.

Salo is righty so a righty will replace him. I think we have to go with two lefties in 1 pairing. Best pairing we have for that is Timonen-Määttä.

I just pray they pick Risto/Jere to be that Righty replacement of Salo. I dont want Hietanen even as 7th dman.

Risto is the best pick IMO, i watched some Buffalo games and he was doing fine, he wasnt their best Dman and so on but overall he was pretty solid and was sent to AHL mainly to gain lots of icetime and especially PP time. He is our best pick to play in that 3rd pairing, we cant go with one righty D and play Erkkas hockey.

Timonen Määttä

Väänänen Vatanen

Kukkonen-Risto

Lepistö

I'm guessing Erkka will bring in Karalahti if Salo can't go. Hope Salo's ok. We can't replace Salo with anyone really. We can only give Määttä (and possibly Vatanen) more minutes. The others can't be trusted with more and Hietanen can't be in the top 6. I would bring in RR instead of Karalahti if Salo is out.

Concering Salo, we shouldn't start slitting our wrists before we know whether it's major or minor. If it's the latter, it's actually good news. Less chances for him to break himself again as the games draw closer.

This doesn't sound too good.

I was watching the game and I would say this could be another ankle injury.

Agree. I think Jere and Risto are both capable playing top 6 minutes.

I'd give a PP spot to Jere but no RR. PK:RR-maybe? Jere-No. If Risto goes to Sotsi, i'd give Kontiola a chance on blueline at PP with Timonen.

We arent doomed if Salo doesnt make it. Määttä is more than able to play in top pairing, if he is healthy and rested. We just need solid effort from Risto or Jere.

I would pick Jere if Salo is out. He is still very good dman even though he has slowed down plus he has tons of experience. Though would be also cool to see more youth there in Risto.

I dont think blocking Coburn wristshot should take over a month to heal

It's Salo who are we talking about. You never know.

Look at his injury history, pretty sad.

Karalahti is too slow, I'd give more mins to the other guys and bring in Ristolainen instead.

In all honesty, in the case that Salo heals on time, he will more than likely get injured during the tournament again.

I am to this today surprised he made it through the whole tournament in 2010!

Doesn't sound good. Hopefully they'll call Risto up if Salo won't be able to play.

As many have already indicated, Ristolainen appears to be the best replacement right now. Certainly far better than Karalahti or Nummelin, probably also better than Jaakola.
