How Do You Say "Rebuild" In Finnish?

According to reports out of Finland, former Caps coach Glen Hanlon will be coaching Helsinki Jokerit of the SM-liiga next season. Terms were not disclosed.

"I love international hockey and the Finnish style of play," said Hanlon. And with Jokerit alums that include Teemu Selänne, (Sami Lepisto's godfather) Jari Kurri, and Esa Tikkanen, what's not to love? Other than Tikkanen, that is.

Who is Glen Hanlon?

But seriously, good for Glennie.
Maybe after some other success he will get some more seasoning and make a return to the National league.

Hey, Glenn Metropolit played for Jokerit, too!

(No, Metro isn't in those guys's leagues, but he always plays with a lot of heart, and that counts for a lot with me.)
