Google translate isn't bearing out what I'm reading here about Reijo. Is it a slang term, or are you guys just being PK Subbans?

Sorry, I still don't get the Reijo thing.

Are you saying that 'reijo' is Finnish for 'drunk'?

Ruotsalainen is the reason for rule that players coming from European league has to go through waivers if they are not in the NHL roster before 1 January.

Apropos, I would probably not have Ilkka Sinisalo on my all-time Team Finland, even if it was an NHL-centric one.

I think it would win the Cup. Hell, Rangers have a shot a the Cup, and they are miles worse

They may be, but i have thought for years that they had it in their future. They have a pretty deep D, an even deeper F, and the G is a no-brainer. If they get hot, they was destined to go deep.
