About me

Flyers fan, JYP fan, hockey fan in general. Like to watch games from a bunch of leagues, NHL, KHL, SM-Liiga, Elitserien, Nationalliga, international games, minor leagues, junior hockey, pretty much anything I can.

Wasn't much of a hockey player myself. Had hockey sense, playmaking abilities and consistency, even excelled in goal (as any Finn should) but was a terrible skater. I guess needless to say I was more successful in soccer. Soccer career didn't exactly pan out either, but still a big soccer fan as well.

Hockey columnist, twitterer, blogger.

About my sources

I follow a bunch of all kinds of sources. Media sources, official sources, unofficial sources. I've learned to trust certain "under the desk" sources enough to go by them even if nothing is officially announced yet.

But I'm not a rumor generator. There are a lot of unreliable sources out there and I'm not forwarding everything I hear. It has to come from a source I trust for me to forward it. In the rare case I forward a rumor I make it clear it's what it is.

Usually I'm not the original source. I've talked to a few players, agents, coaches, even some GMs, but I usually go by my sources.

About my translations

It's always a good thing to question my translations and I don't act like I'm Mr. Perfect. But I have a lot of confidence in my translations. I'm fluent in Finnish, English and Swedish and I also get the best possible help with other languages. My Russian translations for example are approved by two professional Russian reporters.

About my hat

I take it off in the sauna.
