    I'd like to say it was just one game, but, to be honest, the EHT games rarely are any better than this. You have to remember that they are sort of pre-season games in the middle of the season: different players tried out in different roles and positions, trying to find chemistry between different linemates etc. These games have very little value other than giving the players some international experience and training for the World Championships.

    Eloranta apparently didn't get the kind of contract offer he was expecting, so he's having a year off (more likely two) in Europe. He could be back, I too think he still has what it takes to be a third liner in the NHL.

    That's what IIHF was expecting when they removed two-line offsides (redline). Unfortenately it's just worked the other way around. Now there is now smart way to use the neutral zone.

    So whats the format for this tournament? Each team plays each other once, then the top two play in the final?

    No, each team plays each other once.

    In Saturday's other game Finland beat the Czechs 5-1, helped largely by a strong 1st period (4-0). Finland's goalie Mika Lehto (Pens draft pick) only had to make 7 saves in the entire game. Jarkko Immonen was one of 3 Finns to score their first international goals.

    A few more stupid North American questions:
    - There are four tournaments like this through out the season right? Each country hosts one?
    - Two of these have now been played? Which ones remain?
    - Who won this tournament? I haven't been able to find the standings in English anywhere.
    - The Karjala Cup was in Finland, right?
