The Possible Return Of The Mika

With the Swedish Elite League regular season drawing to a close Tuesday, an interesting question must be raised by Senators management. Mika Zibanejad’s (and Fredrik Claesson’s, obviously, but for the purpose of this debate, he doesn’t really matter) DjurgĂ„rden are finishing up a terrible year with games on Saturday and Tuesday, playing to avoid the dreaded relegation playoffs...
