while we're at it, lets add a few years to Klefbom, Marincin and Musil and have them on our blueline come October!

Only caught the first half of last nights game but Bunz looked really good and apparently got better as the game went on!!! Tonight should be a decisive game for us , even with RNH being held out. I am gonna put my eye on Antti Tyrvainen again tonight. I have really liked him in both games , especially his work in front of the net that lead to a goal yesterday against the Jets.

Yah I like Tyrvainen too. Hard working bastard. We could have an all Finn line going maybe to complement the all Swede line. lol

Wow, I just noticed he's only 5'10... unless his height changed. That surprises me, cause he seems to play big.

Wow!! Add fighting to Tyrvainen's list of skills. Nice. Handled himself VERY well in a scrap.

Yeah I have watched a lot of clips from him in the FEL and the guy defiantly has good fighter on his resume!!!

Sweet scrap by Tyrvainen!

That was a serious bullshit call on Hamilton...

Even though he is impressing the hell out of me I doubt we see him make the opening game roster but the good news is that he is signed for 2 more years and we own RFA rights to him after his contract expires. He has plenty of time to work his way up to the big club and I think he will!!!

Nice goal by Lander on a pass from Rieder

But Bouma just scored to make it 4-2.

Lander looks amazing...

I know I may be getting way way way ahead of myself, but is it just me or does Lander remind anyone else of Zetterberg?

They have similar defensive games and he seems to be showing some really nice offensive arrows...man, if he could be awesome defensively and even put up half of Z's offense I'd be stoked!!!

Not sure how he gets demoted to the AHL. Normally players get sent down for reasons of development, but his game is sound. He shines in every aspect IMO. Where there was once famine, we now have a feast. Horc, Gagner, Belanger, Brule, Lander, and RNH. Looking forward to see how things fall into place as TC begins and the pre season unfolds.
