Martin Bergeron Ässät, Pori -> HC La Chaux-de-Fonds, France (B-League)
Jan Caloun Blues, Espoo -> Severstal Tsherepovets, Russia*
Miska Kangasniemi Tappara, Tampere -> Malmö Redhawks, Sweden**

*Despite Jan Caloun had a contract for next season with the Blues, he decided to sign a contract with Severstal Tsherepovets.

**Kangasniemi had already signed a contract with Leksand. In that contract he had a "relegation clause". Leksand was relegated to Allsvenskan and thus the contract was cancelled. He then later signed with Malmö Redhawks.

I could understand if I said it was something I got from a friend of my uncle's next dorr neighbour's barber but come on!

I did the interview for Pete's sake!
There was a little debate on this earlier. Could this be valid information? Well, it wasn't. Jesse Niinimäki has signed with Ilves, Tampere. His contract is for the next season. Tommi Jäminki also signed a contract with Ilves. His contract is 1+1 years.

Why did Pursiainen retire? Isn't he only like 22 years old?

Something like that, yes. He just didn't have the passion to play hockey anymore. He wanted to different things and decided to quit professional ice hockey.

G Iiro Tarkki from Lukko to Hermes (Mestis)

I can see WJC logos flasing in his eyes like dollar symbols as he strides in Mikael Vuorio's footsteps.

News from Kuopio

KalPa have signed four new players: Max Kenig (HPK), Kasper Kenig (Sport), Matti Kuusisto (Jukurit) and Sami Kaartinen (Grenoble, FRA) will join KalPa next season. Defenders Jussi Savolainen and Pekka Parviainen have both extended their contracs with KalPa.

I'm not sure if somebody has already corrected this but unlike mentioned in this thread earlier Pekka Tirkkonen won't be joining KalPa. He has signed a contract to Denmark.

Toni Sihvonen has signed a 1-year contract with Kärpät Oulu.
He didn't play at all last year, but 2 years ago he played for Jokerit and he broke Tuomo Ruutu's knee.

He had a try-out contract with Kärpät and now he got a permanent deal.

Tomas Kucharcik leaves HPK. He won Aarne Honkavaara (goal-scoring leader) and Veli-Pekka Ketola (scoring leader) trophies in 2003.

Jokerit has signed center Quinn Hancock (formerly in Lukko) and goalie Tim Thomas.

Is Langow still continueing in Ässät? I was just wondering if that was the best possible move to Nissinen because if Langow continues as a number one it means that Nissinen won't get that many games that he probably would need now. I personally was expecting him to move to Mestis and maybe to Jukurit.

Antti Boman, Ässät -> Frisk Tigers, Norway

Korhonen, at far as I know Langkow will play for Ässät next season. I think this is a good move for Nissinen, because last season proved that Langkow will not be able to play 56 games and Ässät needs a decent backup. Very probably Langkow will leave after next season and Nissinen would be the future starter if his backup assignments will go well. He is a good backup as he proved in Ilves, but last season was not that good.

Very nice pickup, I'm impressed with Lukko.. with Rautakorpi at the helm, this season they won't be swept in the playoffs..

He has spent most of his career in the ECHL, a league not as good as the SM-Liiga, so im not too sure about him. He's still young though.

IMHO he's a good leftwinger for the attack, often he's unreliable in a defense situation.

Uhh...

Lukko was 5th last season. Granted that they were picking up the pieces for some years after the Bosman decision messed their economy but they were one of the top 4 teams 8-9 years ago, constantly. Also top 4 in player salaries. Lukko is a rich team by Finnish league standards.

After finishing 5th, I would not say they have to get out of the bottom of the league. Actually, the official goal for next year is to do better in regular season and go deep in the playoffs. Better in regular season would mean 1-4.

Right now the roster suggests that its more than possible but we'll see...

I am expecting nothing less than a medal.

Lukko has my sympathies but isn't so that Lukko itself isn't rich but the association that owns Lukko and another big company is?

Basically Lukko (or "raumalaiskiekkoilun tuki") owns RTK service, a nationwide cleaning company which is quite loaded. And that companys main purpose is to support Lukko.

Let's correct this to way it should be...

Tommi Santala from Atlanta Trashers to HIFK, Helsinki.
Santala signed a contract but it has a NHL clause which means he can move to the NHL if he recieves a "good enough" contract. The contract is for two years.
