A bit of information overload but I'll keep it as a reference.  What comes to mind is the Russian hockey coach Anatoly Tarasov and his approach to posession and shots - shoot only when you have a good opportunity to score... a very high scoring percentage will deflate an opponent's confidence...

Got the following info from a Finnish hockey fan that I worked with on a trip to Finland a few years ago:

Kontiola is our leading center forward of all current Fin-born players. Done really well on Fin national team and been a key figure there.  He is a really good team player, knows defensive duties, not just goal scoring. I would think he is more assistant than leathal finisher but those you have plenty ;-) He did so well in Russia/KHL that I believe he succeeds well in NHL. And he is not a rookie anymore, been in NHL at least a short period, so some things are familiar to him.

Leo Komarov you have seen. Hasn't change much from the days he played in my home town team "Porin Assat". And I liked him a lot at that time and he was young then, just about started his career.

Finnish goalie Jussi Rynnas, played in your organisation 2-3 seasons, you may remember him too?
Came back to Finland last season and did well being best goalie in Finnish hockey league. Now he signed a contract with Dallas Stars and is returning NHL.  Just saw him yesterday in the town :-)  He is born in my home town, Pori and has a summer cottage in Luvia.

@wendelsway1 @Mind Bomb @Armchair GM I judge him by his actions more than his comments... in getting a goalie like Bernier and a young exec like Shanahan I feel more confident than with previous executives like Peddie, Dryden, Burke...

@Mind Bomb @Armchair GM With Shanahan's hiring I think he's half-way there... I see his skill as recognizing organizational deficiencies and addressing them quickly...

I like Burke and his blarney and a lot of his moves, but he took too long to get a goalie.  Say what you want about Leiweke, he pushed Nonis to get an effective goalie right away and hired Shanahan when he saw things slipping backwards... I have confidence in Leiweke...

@MaxwellHowe I agree that a 1C is typically drafted... amateur and pro scouting is so important, but you need to have a 1st round pick to begin with... Getzlaf and Mike Richards were late 1st rounders in a year we gave our 1st pick away... Tlusty picked ahead of Giroux...
