This Ericsson hate is reaching ridiculous levels.

I would like to see someone score 30+ goals, it's been way too long now.


In Topic: #73 OA - Defenseman Vili Saarijarvi

Second day comments from Malik: 

 

Vili Saarijarvi 71: I shrug my shoulders and go, "Pro pace, pro pace." I have seen Vili for the sum total of about an hour, and I already understand that the Red Wings didn't overreact by signing him to a pro contract some eight days after he was drafted. He's not big at 5'10" and he's not massively physically imposing, but he is an elegant puckhandler, a smart, slick passer and a superb skater who just does everything well. Tyler Wright called him the "complete package" and that's not off. He's really, really good and I don't know how the Wings got him in the 3rd round, either, because he plays like a 1st round pick.


From the 2015 draft thread.....

 

 

 ... we been bitching forever that we need defensemen but we get a 5;9 dman that didnt look good in his short stint at ushl and returned back to finland....

 

The clear implication in that sentence is that he couldn't hack hockey in NA so he's going home

There are many other reasons to go back but either way he seems to be playing for Flint next season.

Massive overpayment for a guy who is a constant danger in his own zone and doesn't put up points either.
