    Time for a new thread for the upcoming season.

    Jokerit depth chart currently as I see it:

    N.Jensen (option) - Regin - Moses
    Joensuu - O'Neill - X
    Manninen - Norman - X
    Pihlström - Niemi - Anttila
    Ikonen - Mäki - Jormakka
    2-way:
    Embrich - Monto - Halme

    Lepsitö - Lundin (if ok to play)
    Kivistö - X
    Jensen - Lauridsen
    Lööv - Räsänen (not sure if 2-way)
    2-way:
    Hatakka - Nurmikanta
    Reini

    Rämö (option)
    Zapolski
    2-way:
    Ratilainen

    Dependig wether Räsänens deal is 2-way or not, Jokerit has 21 or 22 1-way deals for possible 25. So couple of guys still to coming in.

    Rämö did not use his option and will look to NHL first, probably Omsk next.

    Well Omsk said they have the import goalie signed already so either Ramo has signed with them already or that door is closed.

    Edit: I see they announced it is Ramo this morning. Kinda makes no sense replacing Furch with Ramo but oh well, Russia is gonna Russia.

    A thing that's new for this year is that they've removed the 50% discount on students' season tickets. They're now only available at a lower cost in an upper bowl section and the standing section.

    Well it's a favor (maybe not intended) to cheering section (Eteläpääty) if they get more young people and students there. The atmosphere is at its best there.

    But the most important thing is, what does "I am, we are" mean?

    It's a direct translation from the Finnish slogan and chant that was started when Jarmo Kekäläinen was the CEO of the team. "Minä. Me. Jokerit." It doesn't translate well in English.

    It's cringeworthy. I don't understand why didn't they just stick with Finnish in their branding.

    They're a joke compared to the SM-Liiga days. Every Jokerit fan acknowledges that.

    In any case, do you think it's fair to compare a club vs national team?

    Not if it was the same sport but when it's much smaller sport in Finland, like basketball, and public atmosphere in matches then maybe.

    Roster is looking pretty good after signing Platt:

    Jonesuu - Regin - Jensen
    Platt - O'Neill - Moses
    Manninen - Norman - Jormakka
    Pihlström - Niemi - Anttila
    Ikonen - Mäki - 2-ways

    Lepistö - Lundin (if OK)
    Kivistö - Grant
    Lauridsen - Jensen
    Lööv - Räsänen
    Other 2-ways

    Zapolski
    Kalnins
    Ratilainen

    Still room for 2 1-way deal players. Rumor is that they'll start the season with 24 players in the roster and look for good players during the season if needed. Rumor also says that Jokerit is after Vesalainen. I think Vesalainen would be a 2-way deal since the KHL rules. Osala might also be an iteresting signing.

    And oh, Ikonen just made a two year extension to his deal.

    It's a bit useless to talk about line arrangements in July but for all intents and purposes, 2nd line should be Moses-Norman-O'Neill and 3rd Platt-Manninen-Jormakka. Platt just doesn't belong in the top 6 anymore while Norman I thought did a pretty good job in a more offensive role last season.

    But it's fun to speculate the lineup!

    I agree on waht you say about Norman but I'd like to see three offensively strong centers in the roster. Regin - O'Neill - Norman. I don't think that Manninen will play the center role much if there are no injuries in that department. Even though he played C in the WC.

    Most Jokerit fans don't eveb believe that Manninen can make it in the KHL in the first place... We'll see...

    Well he did lead his SHL team in scoring, it's quite a stretch to think he can't make it in the KHL in any role. I guess just shows how little Finns think of the SHL :laugh:

    I think it's because Manninen was bad in the WC.

    I think Vesalainen and his agent are waiting for the Jets to re-sign everyone they have to first and then see how much room they have in their cap.
