[Proposal] Jori Lehtera

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking the Canucks could use some scoring and another play making centre. I'm proposing that we lure Jori Lehtera out of the KHL, and throw a one-way deal at him. He's 26 and has 32 points in 35 games in the KHL, 25 of which are assists in a league which rarely counts secondary assists. We've seen in done before, Radulov coming out of the KHL for the Preds at the deadline, Calgary luring away Cervenka and Detroit grabbing Brunner from the Swiss league.

He's a big guy at 6'2" 201 lb, and was recently announced to Finland's Olympic roster. I think if given another shot at the NHL, he could flourish. If the rumors are true that Henrik could be injured, then we desperately need a playmaker.
