    Hopefully he will be able to find the net in international competition.
     
  4. First Jussi Rynnas is named player of the week, now Teemu Hartikainen named rookie of the month.

    Good job for Finland!

    he doesnt really have top 6 potential, his skating isnt great but he does use his body well in front of the net. a poor mans holmstrom is not a bad comparison

    From what I saw in training camp he is a hard worker, i wouldn't consider him the second coming of Clutterbuck or anything... but he can throw a hit, and he wins lots of puck battles.

    Well, I'd assume as soon as the Barons clinch a playoff spot... Reddox and O'mark are already up on the big club, and it really started to hurt them for awhile there. Losing two players in the top ten in league scoring tears any team apart, now imagine if the Oilers stole the player who was starting to step it up and fill in the holes?

    It is stupid politics, but it is how the hockey world works... It would be nice to see the guy play in Edmonton, and I would personally love to see him on the team. I personally thought he and VandeVelde could have made the fourth line this year... god knows we need players that can win faceoffs.

    from what i've seen of him, i could see him becoming a really good 3rd line guy who can put up respectable points and bring some energy. don't really see any top-6 upside there though. but never say never i guess...

    also he's got good leadership qualities and very good infront-of-net play. I could easily see him as a 3rd line guy who gets PP time aswell. If his skating was better he could be a top-6 player...

    sounds like a player the oilers could use down the road.. the wings are pretty stacked right now tho with hall, ebs, paajarvi, hemmer, etc. but i hope we get a chance to see him in a couple games with edmonton this year just to see where hes at
