    Wiki says it's an Icebreaker Tarmo (1907 icebreaker) - Wikipedia
    The new icebreaker was launched on 9 September 1907 and given the name Tarmo, meaning "vigor" and "spirit" in the Finnish language.

    Johnson? Yes. Hajek? No.

    Hajek has been quite good lately. Very steady and very unnoticeable. The only time I notice him is when he's getting trucked by someone which seems to happen once a game. And that's fine. If I can't tell that he's on the ice, he's playing well enough.

    But that's typical for non-elite defense prospects. These guys take a lot more time to develop. Hajek has been playing quite well since he got into the lineup. I am pleased. Hajek looks like he'll be a decent 2nd pairing defenseman or an elite 3rd pairing defenseman.

    I was hoping he'd be a 2/3, which I think is starting to look like a lost cause, but he's still got the potential to be quite a valuable player. The type of guy teams need on decent contracts.

    Tarmo is a quite common name in Finland, and i never associated the name with the Swedish word tarm. Rather, seeing the name Tarmo makes me think about icebreakers, not intestines :). So in my book it is a good name. His whole name is so typical finnish, especially compared to Kaapo Kakko.
    I like Kaapos name too, it is cool, but in my mind not as typical for a Finn.

    For sure. I was just saying, if we're judging readiness for NHL action by what you've done in other leagues, Hajek shouldn't be doing what he's doing now. A guy struggling in the Czech League should have no business even near an NHL rink. But, that's not how it always works, as you said.

    Reunanen will get his shot. I'm just not a fan of the whole, "Player X is clearly better than (name your NHL player); how could they be worse?" That's been said countless times over the years and then we find out the prospect is definitely worse. :laugh: The guy may be better in the long run, but the jump from the AHL to the NHL is still a big one an even productive AHL guys often fail to make it.

    I think Hajek is just that type of guy that must be more comfortable on the NHL-sized rinks.

    I kind of love 51 for a defenseman tbh. Always been a fan of this kid, hopefully he has a solid game. Talk about a glow up.. from Mestis to the bestest :laugh:

    I swear to god he better get as good of a chance in this line-up as Hajek. Reunanen makes-up for a lack of physicality in the defensive zone by actually being a decent professional-league player.

    He didn't look out of place from my untrained eye, the same eye that saw #79 out of place an awful lot.

    I wonder if by any chance he stays in the lineup and maybe someone like Miller who can use a seat. nothing wrong with a mental break as a young player especially when the player tends to struggle. I wonder if Tarmo stays and makes Jack Johnson a memory.
