[FIN] Finnish transfers, "summer" of 2004 *No rumors*

Once again, I copied an idea from the Swedish board: in this thread we list and discuss all transfers inside, from and to SM-liiga, Mestis and U20 SM-liiga. Only confirmed transfers with a reliable source should be listed, this shouldn't be turned into a rumour mill.

So far:

Juha Pursiainen SaiPa -> retired
Pekka Tirkkonen Linköping (Sweden) -> KalPa (Mestis)
Teemu Kuusisto Sport (Mestis) -> Jokerit
Aleksander Barkov Tappara -> retired
Vesa Viitakoski Ilves -> Brynäs (Sweden)
Simo Vidgren KalPa (Mestis) -> Ilves
Tero Leinonen JYP -> Habarovsk (Russia, tryout)
Tero Paappanen Pelicans -> Habarovsk (Russia, tryout)

Tapparan edustusjoukkueesta varmasti ovat siirtymässä muihin seuroihin tai lopettavat Petri Varis, Mike Stapleton, Dale Clarke, Miska Kangasniemi, Aleksander Barkov ja Arto Kuki.

Ossi Louhivaara from KooKoo, Kouvola to JYP Jyväskylä (2 year contract)
Arsi Piispanen from Jokerit, Helsinki to JYP Jyväskylä (2 year contract)
Sinuhe Wallinheimo from Färjestäd, Sweden to JYP Jyväskylä (1 year contract)
Pauli Piippo for Jokipojat, Joensuu to JYP Jyväskylä (3 year contract)

Louhivaara was drafted by Ottawa Senators round 8 #260 overall 2003 NHL Entry Draft.

Piispanen was drafted by Columbus Blue Jackets round 5 #138 overall 2003 NHL Entry Draft.

Pauli Piippo is very promising player. He will be playing with the JYP A-junior team.

Wallinheimo currently plays in the Swedish Elitserien finals.

Wallinheimo is pretty good too.
I am. Piispanen, Louhivaara, two very promising young players. Both players chose JYP according to a press release and that makes me happier. Piispanen could have stayed in Jokerit but he wanted to come to Jyväskylä. Louhivaara could've chose HPK or TPS instead of JYP.

Wallinheimo is going to be our number one for next season. Damn good goalie I might add.

Oh, so that's how it goes, send the juniors to be developed by other teams, then steal them back when they're ready to contribute?! Can't Holtari be persuaded to take Latvala and Vertala instead?

This complicates - or simplifies - the situation in Jokerit. There is no one in juniors who could be called up to play center, so they'll have to acquire a fourth line center now. Whether it would've been smart to have Piispanen play that position was unclear.

Well, Piispanen went to Jokerit at C-junior age because his father went to work in Helsinki. He has been wanting back for sometime now. I think we can take Vertala also if he is available.

Marko Tuulola HPK -> Rapperswil
Mikko Eloranta TPS -> Rapperswil

Both players have been captains of their respective teams so this is a huge blow to each team imo.

It also means that we don't have to worry about players missing league games because of the WJC, because we probably won't have any players in that tournament. Now, whether that's a good thing...

I have been told by the Edmonton Oilers that Jesse Niinimaki is likely to sign with TPS Turku. (Excerpt from my interview with Kevin Prendergast below). My question is if this would be a positive move for Niinimaki.


While Mikhnov appears headed for North America, the same cannot be said for Jesse Niinimaki.

“He’s in the process of signing with TPS Turku and I think from the standpoint of, ‘if there is no NHL next year’, I think he has to get back playing again,” confessed Prendergast. “His agent is going to let us know, they’re in the negotiation stage and when it gets really serious then they’re going to talk to us and see what our plans are for him. I hope to talk to him when I’m over there on this trip.”

This is what many posters in Finnish boards have been wondering: was Mr. Prendergast really trying to say that Niinimäki is about to change team, or could it possibly be that he just didn't remember correctly where Jesse plays? I believe you could know this as the interviewer.

Would it be a good move? Who knows, Ilves has also very good coaching staff. But maybe move to Turku where he would be a lesser known guy would make him concentrate even more to hockey.
