    Why aren't the Hawks giving him a legitimate shot?

    He did get a look with talent. And yes, I understand you're being facetious.

    The old guard has dwindled.

    Mostly because most the people who had to watch Arnason-Bell-Calder as a first line offed themselves.

    At least the ABC line offered hope at time (False hope it turned out)

    Look back on the defense back then. Dempsey , Poapst , Berard , Quint , Strudwick and then youth that never were all that good in Burke Henry , Jim Vandermeer and Lasse!

    I miss your single season GDT (Or did it extend multi years when I joined ,, Cant remember all that well)

    He didn't get a fair shot either. Played 4 games as a winger when he plays center.

    Averaging 39 point in the KHL now.

    Kontiola was lazy and didn't want to put the work in needed to be a successful NHL player.

    Is it sad that when I read his name, I got a smile on my face?

    So much nostalgia.

    Jeffrey Hamilton was also deserving of more time in the organization.

    Lasse Kukkonen was good and should have been kept. Really, Niklas Hjalmarsson is just a slightly better version of him.

    Youngin. :P Drew LeBlanc reminds me quite a bit of Kontiola. (in terms of his skill, not Konti's unprofessionalism)

    Lasse was more Oduya than Hammer, but I'm also surprised he's not bouncing around the league somewhere. He was solid at both ends of the ice.

    He was too inconsistent to nail down a fulltime job in NHL

    After his consistency issues continued in Philly his best bet was to return to Europe for employment

    Kontiola had a great WC last year. Just sayin... he draw some attention with this.

    Funny to think about it... I see Hendry, Stewart, Lalonde and the great Danny Richmond in the DEL and last year Bell was here too :laugh:
