Well, I have written it before many times that Jonas Jerebko opened the door for so many nordic players in getting signed by Detroit in the second round of the draft 2 years ago. He has shown the way....it can be done if you really want it.
A few days ago he changed that open door to a huge gate when signing a 18 million dollar deal over 4 years with the Pistons.
Who will be next?
Leave the excuses at home and start polishing your god given talent or go play floorball and fix your hair instead for more hours than you practice.
