    I'll hide this funny tidbit here. Was looking at Pajuniemi's recent stats and noticed Google Translate turns Kaapo Kakko into Crap Cake.

    BTW Pajuniemi has 2 goals and 3 assists in his last 6 games averaging about 16 minutes a night for TPS.

    13 points in 35 games, 5 in the last 6 in Liiga. Looks like a solid prospect, nice pickup in the 5th round.

    Look at the leagues draft history on http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/draft/index.html

    The draft is littered with guys just like this that never play one NHL game. It's not just the Rangers it's just a numbers game. Very, very few actually make it and the later the round the greater the chance is that they don't make it. I'd imagine that we never hear from this guy in the NHL.

    well, he was a 5th rounder, so Im obviously not expecting anything. Still nice to see him progressing and playing well in a tough league. Most likely he wont turn into anything (like most 5th rounders), but you never know.

    Realistically, they need to get lucky on at least one late round prospect to help this thing turn around.

    Ugh, jeez. Fast is a warm body. Hopefully some of these late picks are more than that.

    Cant really hope for more than a warm body with a 5th round pick.

    We've had 5 1st rounders + 3-4 2nd rounders just the last two seasons. Those picks are supposed to be something more than just a warm body. Getting Fast for a 5th rounder would be a huge win.

    Absolutely, but I'd rather they hit on a depth scoring type of guy than a grinder if that makes sense.

    2 goals and 1 assists today in Liiga. Up to 8 goals, 10 points in 17 games. 3rd on his team in scoring.

    I really think this guy has potential to be an NHL player. He’s still just 20 and seems to improve every game. Looks like a really nice pick in the 5th round.

    Another two goal night for Pajuniemi in Liiga today. 4th in the league with 11 goals in 19 games. Lead all players U21 in goals and 3rd in points (13).

    Keep him over there 2 or 3 more seasons. Man, the progress he's made.
    I thought we'd eventually see him as a Fast-like replacement, but this offensive outburst has been great... even though I think the team has had some issues this season

    Yeah, the good thing about him being a 5th rounder is that there is no reason to rush him over. Give him 2/3 season, let him dominate the league before coming over.

    His progress has been amazing. In a redraft he would definitely go in the 2nd or 3rd round. Still a long way to go for him, but looking good for a 5th rounder.

    Scored his 15th goal today. 3rd in goals in the league as a 20 y old. His closest team mate has 8 goals. All this while averaging 13th most ice time on his team.

    The Pack can be funny next year with him and Barron on the PP.

    Two goals and 1 assist so far in todays game. TPS up 4-1 in the 3rd.

    17 goals, 25 points in 28 games. Tied for 2nd in goals in the league - as a 20 y old on the 2nd worst team.

    At this point, I think the Finnish league just kind of sucks. Not to take away from this kid's potential, but perennial NHL failure Puljujarvi is lighting it up there. Kakko lit it up last year and has been, for the most part, unimpressive in the NHL.

    I think you bring him over next year and see what he's got. Staying there against far inferior players won't mean much.
