Koskinen is exactly 2metres or 200cms tall so that would make him 6'7 in the incredibly stupid and outdated imperial system.

Clearly Wang's investment in developing Asian sumo wrestling goaltenders can be written off as a failure now that they are having to draft big Euros.

It's possible. It just depends on when DiPietro goes down for the balance of the season.

Yes. I just suppress these comments, though. Makes for a brighter light at the end of the tunnel. I think there's a light. I see something, well.. is it a light?

Ben Bishop, 6'7" is already the biggest goalie. Koskinen would tie.

according to Chris Botta, the Isles rushed this signing as Mikko had some sort of agreement with his Finnish team that if he didn't sign by 7/15 he would play the year in Finland.

Atm the Finnish team Blues is in financial problems and every player can leave if they want to so that 7/15 wouldn´t been a problem I guess.

It´s very interesting to see Mikko´s career go forward and I think he has all the tools to become a starter in the NHL.

Well I guess they are expecting DiP to miss time again.

NHL
Roloson
Munroe

AHL
Lawson
Koskinen

They could be, but I see it more as a contingency plan. We really had no goalie prospects in the system aside from Poulin who is a longshot and not really ready to turn pro.

I realize how it looks but we needed to get some depth there. Also Munroe is likely to start at the Bridge.

What would happen if Tavares didnt sign?
