That's it?  We've probably drafted twice that many Swedes during that period.

Well it's not really a secret that Swedes have been our most dominant Euro draft selection in recent years. That probably has a lot to do with our Director of European scouting (Hakan Andersson) being Swedish. Point was, "We don't draft Finns" is incorrect. 4 in the past 5 years says otherwise.

I see.  I should have said, "We don't play Finns".

So, it's not that we wouldn't have drafted Heiskanen, because we clearly have no problem drafting Finns, it's that we wouldn't have played Heiskanen, because apparently "We don't play Finns"...

Got it...

They would have likely drafted Elias Pettersson instead.  He's Swedish.

Which would have also been amazing. I think it would have been between the two. Maybe they would have gone with the big defenseman though, especially with all the Lidstrom comparisons at the time...

We need more Lebanese. Kadri. 

I actually wouldn't mind him at the right price. He's a ball of hate and a really good shutdown centerman. Basically a rich man's Glendening.

That's a deep cut right there.

All of Dearborn and Dearborn Heights, Michigan would show up to the games and celebrate on the streets with every goal.

Leino and Pulkkinen were out of Detroit faster than you can say Jack Robinson.

Maybe in 1920 when they came to work for Ford but now tis not true. Not in Dearborn. There was a large exodus of the Shiite Muslim sect after the Lebonese civil war in the 80s. You may be referring to overall population though such as West Bloomfield, Commerce Township etc which includes the Christian Iraqi's (Chaldeans) and Maronites around Livonia, Michigan. Anyways wouldn't matter; they'd still root for the dude. You ever seen Lebanese and other arabs band together for Soccer? It's insane. 

Either way, f*** Kadri. I'm not a fan. Ironically I'm meeting up Kadri's family friend this week and will likely talk s*** about Kadri to him. 

Let me know if anyone has a few words to say to Kadri. Happy to pass along the s*** talk.

Maybe he and AA can make love, which forms their offspring; A universal world baby that can actually play well rounded hockey
