I would of rathered Niitty stayed in Philly, but if he goes to Tampa at least he will stay in the NHL and I will still have a chance to watch him play. He is one of my favorite players, so give him a good home

Hyvää Jatkoa Niitty.

So he gets 8 guaranteed starts!
I doubt they play him in both preseason games against Atlanta.

Yes, it's already been addressed, thanks.


Okay, moving on. HF poster and my friend McLovin spoke to OK at the camp and said the deal is done and will be announced tomorrow.

He hasn't signed anything yet. The team is reportedly after him, but he hasn't agreed to any deal with the team.

Now either OK is lying, Mclovin is lying, or it's a done deal.

I think I actually like this more than having Ramo. If Niitty performs the way I expect I wouldn't mind a longer contract next year and just let Ramo stay in Russia.

Yup. We stretch time between Tokarski and RIKUUUUUUUUUUU as well, which is nice for the both of them.

Well thats a step up from Ramo last year and probably better than Smith too lol. I mean you know you suck at shootouts when you make a save and they still award the other team a goal.
