Cheers for that too. Thought it was his plan to return to the AHL after the Google translate, but I guess not yet.

He's under contract here. I think he has no choice but to come here unless we loan him. He could mutually terminate his contract and play elsewhere of his choice, but then he's giving up NHL contract money.

Listened to the interview again, what he says is, he is coming back to fight for the NHL spot - what that means, I have no idea. But I would say, that NHL camp a then they decide. However, my feeling is, that second departure to Europe wouldn't be seen too positively by Canucks..

 

Had a good summer, without any injuries and he has been imporving quickness and speed.

 

Canucks loaned him out. Palmu may have requested it, but it was ultimately the Canucks' decision to let him go. If they didn't like the idea, they could've requested that he mutually agree to terminate the contract so he could choose where he would want to play and save ourselves a contract spot. I highly doubt there are any bad feelings here and was simply a developmental choice. Hope to see him back and ready to compete. Him and Gadj need to rekindle that friendship.

Only if he finds one on eBay!  Not a NHL player and not even close.

He really should have stayed there last year. If he's ever going to be an NHL player (which was always a long shot), he was always going to need a few years of development.

I would have to agree that he's likely a write off at this point. Why not just mutually agree to terminate the contract though? I think he's still signed for another year too.

So either Palmu doesn't want to give up that sweet ELC money or perhaps the Canucks actually view this as a development plan.

that could be too........if they're not mutually terminating his contract, they obviously feel he's got a shot still. Interesting decision though

If Palmu wore out his welcome in Finland now can we still blame Cull?

 

 

Well that is quite the dilemma as he appeared to be doing well in Finland.  I think he’s a prospect worth keeping for another 1-2 years but maybe he comes back to NA.

What!? According to the fans on the CDC he's got an attitude problem.

 

Why would Utica want him back?

(Just to clarify this is SARCASM)

Forgotten prospect Petrus Palmu has scored 11 points (4G 7A) and is a +7 through his 8 games played this season.

 

That’s good enough to lead the Finnish Liiga in points per game (among all players with >1GP).

Well with the way his agent was talking theres a good chance we see him back here next year. But, considering how some bridges seem to have been burnt lets hope he continues to perform well enough that he becomes a valuable trade piece for us
