    This drives me crazy. Now and then an attacker gets unlucky and despite his best attempt to injure a player somehow the victim of the attack comes out ok. It’s the action that is the problem we don’t need to assess the damage. If you take a blatant shot with a head first hit do we need to await what the doctor said or just agree that more often than not this would result in a serious head injury?

    I hate waiting for the result of the action when the act is egregious and clearly over the line.

    They play on Tuesday.

    Teams ranked 7-10 play a best-of-3 series (7 vs 10, 8 vs 9) to get to the next round, the two winners face the 1st and 2nd ranked teams.

    Teams 1-6 get a nice break. Karpat is the #1 ranked team.

    Yeah, playoffs start next tuesday. They are now playing the 'pity playoffs' as we call them. 7 vs 10, 8 vs 9, best of three. Kärpät will face the worse of the teams that makes it to the 'real playoffs'.

    ..always too late.

    I wonder if @Tom ServoMST3K would have survived that 4 OT Bison game if he'd had to call it in Finnish. :laugh:

    Translating the main points:

    -Left HIFK in 2015. He says that HIFK staff thought that he'll take 6 years to become a player in Finnish Liiga. Vesalainen saw more potential in himself
    -In Frolunda he sucked all the information he could from different coaches. Says he grew a lot during his trip to Sweden
    -Dropped everything else at 14 years of age and decided to make hockey his profession
    -Sounds like he's been working very hard to better himself. He says many people don't realize how much work it actually takes.
    -He got confidence from WJC and thinks that's the most important thing in hockey. Without confidence you can't get anything done
    -Like Lempo said, Winnipeg scouts were at his games recently for 1 week, and he wrote a report for them from every game.
    -He'll get his ELC contract after the season is done (Not sure which season, NHL or Liiga. Probably Liiga, yeah?)

    Maybe the biggest take here is how much he believes in himself.

    Thanks for that. After reading every word in Finnish it dawned on me that I didn’t understand a single word......

    I doubt that. It happens quite easily when you read quickly (especially when you already assume something because it was told you). But the main part was that HIFK made a really bad call on this one. On their behalf, might have been a good thing for KV's future.

    "– Laukausta olen harjoitellut eniten vapaa-ajalla. Meillä oli autotallissa broidin kanssa maali, vedeltiin koko ajan koulun jälkeen. Ja kesällä mökillä, Vesalainen hymyilee."
    "On my free time I've been working the most on my shot. We had a crease in our garage, where we used to be practicing shooting all day after school. And during summers we had a crease in our summer place, where we did the same. Vesalainen says smilingly"
    Just thinking about a PP in the future, with Vesalainen on the right side one-timer spot and Laine on the other side. The jets team will be scary good!

    I doubt that is in the cards. More likely is a PP2 that is a mirror image and uses the opposite half wall for a QB to set up
