"Laakso hasn't developed as expected". What? What did they expect?
With the ice time he's been getting in SM-liiga it's a wonder he even has those two goals he has so far. The coaches also forbid him to take part in the offense.
When he had a few chances to play with the HIFK junior team he pretty much dominated and they won 4 out of 5 games he played in and that's something considering that they are like the last team in the league or second to last or something...
Not to mention he plays with a shoulder brace all the time because of the injury to his shoulder he got at the last WJC (the same kind of injury that forced Mielonen to surgery and left him out of this WJC team).
OK, I'm a homer, but... yeah...
