Pikkarainen Goes To Finland

Hannu Pick-your-anus

Hannu Pikkarainen has returned to HIFK Helsinki, the Finnish team he's spent most of his pro career with (thanks to Pack Attack for the tip).

The question now is, how with the Wolf Pack replace this huge hole in their defense?

Glad I didn't have him autograph anything...

Shoulda had him autograph a bunch of pucks-- one for every goal scored on him.

Random thoughts on players from Finland.

Pikkarainen - dang, I invested the time learning how to spell the name.

Jarkko - there are too many "k's" in Finish names.

Wiikman. Why did they double the "i's: and not the "k's"? Perhaps this will give him a chance to do well. I'm sure they love him in Charlotte (double t). And Packk fans will hate him when he is called up at some point in tiime.

Finland is the land of the Finished to me.

Oh, Korpikoski. He does not have a name which sounds Finish. It is more Polish.

He should continue to do well.

Hah. And he'll star in the Man from Uncle too

Nicknaming Miika Wiikman "Four-Eyes", that cracks me up.

As for Korpikoski, and as far as I know, "koski" is some sort of a waterfall in Finnish ("korpi" means wilderness?). Nothing to do with the suffix -ski in Polish, that indicates nobility.

I thought "ski" was because he lived on a mountain.

You post shit about every fucking obscure band known to man, and i take you to see a real band and this is the thanks i get.
i can't fucking belive you even wasted the time to put up something about the bigest taint of a defenceman to wear a pack uniform.

I am the "proud" owner of a Hannu Pikkarainen autograph.

You're not supposed to say that aloud, though.
