    Hello!

    I have a memory about TPS signing a third link to a superb first line prior to the 01-02 season.

    The season before they had signed Maestro Niko Kapanen.

    For the 01-02 season they signed Timo Pärssinen in april 2001.

    Both Niko and Timo were lost to north america before playing together. But I have a recollection there was a third guy who was supposed to be the third link in the sign who also left for north america. I tried to find old news and stuff but to no avail!

    Does anyone else remember who it was? I thought it was someone in the Antti Miettinen mold, a pretty big name with some two-way skills...

    Yeah, it was him! What a dominant line that would have been!
