Sebastian Aho, indirectly involved in the hostile show that brought Gisbury Kotaniemi to Caroline, said he was entertained by the turn of events reminiscent of what happened in 2019.
Two years ago, attacking hurricanes was the target at the time for a five-year, $42 million Montreal Canadiens bid. The bid was matched on the Canes side as general manager Don Waddell retained the number 20’s services.
This summer’s Hurricanes responded with a hostile offer of a year and $6.1 million to Kotkaniemi that the Habs failed to match. The show included a $20 signing bonus, which Wahoo fans alike didn’t lose out on.
“Honestly, it was fun to see the $20 signing bonus,” Aho said. ESPN. Jokes aside, we’ve got a pretty good player. “
The striker also discussed a hostile display in the company of his fellow Finn. He wanted to help her get used to life in Raleigh.
“We chatted about different aspects in general,” Aho said of restaurants and places to settle.
The latter also likes the small competition that arises with the Canadian because of this response from Canes management.
People are talking about it and I think it would be a good thing. It will be fun to meet them next year. It’s part of the job. Social media is critical today. We didn’t even play a game where there was already a buzz about it,” he said.
The Hurricanes and Canadians are scheduled to face each other on October 21 at the Bell Center.
