Well I guess it's good to "wake" them up right away off the plane...it's not a vacation but a business trip

Teemu looks a little bit like he might need a little sleep





Randy Carlyle opened the press conference speaking finnish: "Good day and thank you" and he also mentioned he knows some other finnish words but it's better he will not say them (RC has finnish heritage)

You know some took a nap sometime on that flight but still that's rough.

Good to seem them having fun at least. Must be a great experience for those who weren't with the team last time.

RC smiling is just freaky.

Interesting expression...

Any word yet on possible broadcast/streaming of the exhibition game against Jokerit?

Nope. Atleast I haven't found any Finnish channel that would show the game which is very lame.

The Ducks just loaded onto a yacht called "Lucky 8" bound for Helsinki's Sauna Island. Care to guess which of them owns "Lucky 8"?

They don't have NHL broadcasting rights. At least yet. My question was directed to the North Americans actually.

Seems like Nelonen Pro 1 will air the the Jokerit game in Finland. That won't help me since I don't have pay tv. Hopefully someone will stream it unless nhl.com streams it as well.

Mind if I watch the game at your place? Just leave the key somewhere near the front door. I'll be gone before you come back, I promise.

Makes sense. I have some English heritage and I curse almost exclusively in English.
