Watching his vids a little closer I think he may have the second best point shot on the team after Klefbom. Not a bad risk to take.

He does seem to have an excellent release.

Thanks for the link to the article. He speaks 6 freaking languages. The guy seems bright, I really hope he plays well and contributes

Yes, he should contribute more after one season in which he worked to adapt his play to the north american style and rink size. He knows what to expect this year.

He was also one of the best defensemen at the last World Championships with team France : 7 pts (2+5) in 7 games and +7 (2 PIM and 1 GWG).

He has a pretty decent one timer. Thats gold on this team.

As I mentioned earlier...I think he might be a sleeper in camp.

Looking forward to seeing what he can do.

Hopefully he can beat out gryba. Spot duty gryba is okay, consecutive games of grubs is not.

Good luck to him

I was a little bit disappointed he was demoted to Albany last year
The first reason was his contract
He wasn't the worst D on the team but he was the easiest to demote
That said his defensive play was too weak for an exposed team like NJD

Resides in Finland and speaks Finnish, yet another guy that can help Puljujarvi settle in in Edmonton. Jokinen, Auvitu and Pakarinen = a pretty damn large Finnish speaking contingent. Added bonus is that Auvitu speaks Russian IIRC so he can help Slepyshev as well.

Most Europeans I know speak at least 3 languages. It is only us English speakers who find it amazing

Seems like a waste of a contract, especially when we are so close to 50 contracts.

Should have got a guy who could compete for the 4-5 slot while Sekera is out rather than the 6-7 spot. It will be interesting to see what guys like Franson get in term and salary.
