    frolunda has signed ari ahonen. my question is why??? gistedt has proven himself as a very good starting goalie in the SEL. so why sign such a big name??

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought Ahonen played as a back-up keeper in Finland. He got brought in as the starter and got palmed off cos he couldn't nail down the starting role.

    Another possibilty is maybe he is coming to north america thru the euro draft maybe his agent and himself got something worked out with a junior team.

    Rumor has it Gistedt is somewhat of a couch potato. He outplayed Salo easily last season and now they want a better opponent for him on the bench.

    Last season they gave him way too much ice time. My opinion was always to start Salo as soon as possible so Joel wouldn't feel so comfortable in the net. They didn't do this and as a clockwork you'd have Gistedt let in 2 or 3 softies in one game.

    He justed signed what I'd guess is a very generous contract with Frölunda for the next season.

    A junior team in the CHL? Why would he go there? He'll get his ice time in the SEL.
